No, I haven't died...

I am still working (and apparently this work is taking place in my head, and not online) on figuring out what's next for the Cool Librarian website and blog. Actually, I have been doing a lot of reading of other library-ish blogs, trying to see where my blog might fit in. I have to say, we're a thorough lot - I doubt that any library blog of mine could add much new to the mix.

So, in my head, it becomes a matter of catering to your reader. And, um, I don't think I have many readers yet.

Also, I am waiting patiently (Call me! Call me NOW, for Pete's sake!!) to hear on a very nice full-time job as an outreach librarian. Hmmmm - full-time, with benefits, retirement, insurance - I can't even imagine.

While I'd like to think a full-time job will impact my online/freelance activities, um, who am I kidding? It's not like my freelance work take up much of my time at this point. But since my goal is to eventually have my own business (that can actually support me), I plan to keep online - and perhaps a new job will help me finance some advertising, and maybe a nifty css class so that I can build a better site.

So, in the meantime, I hope to do some blogging on social software. This is certainly an "old" and very talked about topic in libraryland, but since I think most people who might come across this blog are library consumers rather than librarians, it might be of interest.
