Update

So it’s been five years. Good job, Matthew, way to update the blog.

Short version:

I am now the Lead Librarian at a public library in a small southern MN city. I work with teens and adults, and also manage the staff and facilities at the library. This is after two and a half years of work at the northern WI library where I started this blog, and a little over one year at another library in eastern WI. I am planning now to update this blog weekly, including book reviews and program updates. I think it’s good for me to have a functioning blog as a working professional.

Side note: I am obviously miserable at this blogging thing, so we’ll see how that works out. But I’d rather try to commit again than just let this sit unused.

More updates (hopefully) to come soon.

OK, so there’s no secret that I have been a complete slacker about updating this thing. It’s been, what, about a year since my first, and only, blog post? I’m doing so well at writing every day and all those grand things I said I’d do in June of 2009. 😛 Anyway, before I get started trying to post regular,  serious updates at the urging of some friends of mine, I decided to catch everyone up on what I’ve been doing.
