Here's some stuff.

Legit, if this blog were some physical stuff, it would be a pile of junk on the floor.

I'm a high school librarian, and I used to library blog as reading (with cats), but I ultimately decided I'd rather just keep it all here. So there's a few months of my library stuff there.

Also I super like Masterpiece.

my read shelf:
Emily's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (read shelf)

  1. Okay, so this is it. I’m moving my library/MLIS/book stuff over to a secondary blog.

    I’ve had this blog for about 2 years now, which is about twice as long as I’ve been in an MLIS program. The result of that is a lot of blogging about my classes and librarianship on my personal blog, and I’m realizing that that isn’t where I want to do it. I do want to talk about library stuff and books and YA issues and my coursework and all that, but I am also not going to stop reblogging gifs of dinosaur fights and composing rants comparing regional grocery store chains, a fact which has held me back from participating in the tumblrarian community as much as I’ve come to realize that I would like to.

    So I’m moving. I’ve gone through and done my best to tag the MLIS and library-related stuff on my personal, but from now on, I’m moving that part of what I do over to I know some people who follow me here would probably rather follow me there, and some people who follow me here probably are not at all interested in what I’ll be doing over there but might idly wonder why I stopped posting so much about children’s books, so this is heads-up.

    Maybe I won’t like this change; maybe I’ll switch back. I’ll definitely forget where I mean to post things and cross post some stuff. But this is something I am going to try.

  17. I’m still really feeling like I need to separate my tumblarian-self from my personal-tumblr self but it turns out that seriously considering that involves the terrible decision of picking another url and that’s really too much to handle before lunch.

  19. Wow, except for Boo this morning and that gif a few weeks ago of Robert Plant gyrating, this blog has been pretty grown-up lately.

    I feel like I should split off of my personal with a library-centric blog, but everything’s been so intertwined for so long now, I don’t really know how to do it at this point.
