I’m Baaaack

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.
