Thank you for sticking with me while my blog had some major hiccups. It got a nasty virus and it made doing things a bit problematic. I want to send a huge thank you to Blake and LISHost for doing all of the heavy virus cleaning. Without him I wouldn’t have been able to get this blog back in working order.
In the next few weeks I am going to be messing with the design so I ask for your patience once again as I muck around here.
Starting in mid April I will be taking emails and names of people who would like to write guest posts on this blog. In May I will be the MLA President and while I will still post on this blog from time to time I feel it would be best if I try and draw a line on what I do as MLA President and my Krafty Librarian musings.
In the past I have posted product reviews, opinion pieces, and other items that are not intended to be the views of MLA. I still want my blog to be a source of information and publish those type of pieces, but I also realize that something like an online product review written by me while sitting as MLA President might cause a conflict. That is why I will be needing some people to be guest bloggers for the year.
My intention is to have a group of people so that the writing will not fall on any one person’s shoulders. My goal is to have 1-2 posts a week. Authors will mostly have the freedom write what they want about publishing, computers, apps, librarianship, libraries, medicine, medical libraries, etc.
I will reserve the right to not post or delete an author’s piece. Authors shouldn’t shy away from writing a good hard critical review of a product but at the same time they will have to have the facts to back up their words and I won’t tolerate flaming. Same goes with opinion pieces, except the author will need to clearly state somewhere in their post that it is their opinion (and I still won’t tolerate flaming).
If you think this is for you or you know somebody who would be good, keep an eye out because I will be sending something more formal out in the beginning of April. Somebody asked me if I will continue to have guest bloggers post after I my Presidential year. I have no clue. IF it works out then maybe so. This is an an experiment for me.
