Moving Is Awful

I am in the middle of moving; outside of the fact that I am going to a better apartment, moving just bites. Hence the sound of crickets chirping from over here lately. The final push takes place this weekend, so I plan to be back to "normal" sometime next week. Actually, I hope to be back to better than normal and be bringing you some nifty libraryland resources on a more regular basis.

A few tidbits:

Bill Drew has done what I have been trying to do for, like, ever and created an online librarian community! Thing is, Bill picked the right tool and put together Library 2.0 using Ning (which I blogged about some time ago, it's a bit different now). It's already HOT, so go check it out if you haven't done so! And feel free to send me a friend request - the more people I get to "know," the better.

My librarian blog buddy, Josh Neff, is swimming with the "big fish" in March's American Libraries! Josh, you rock! See his post about it here.

To add to the fun goings on, I just found out that I will be presenting two talks at this year's Rhode Island Library Association conference. TWO! Actually, it's one "serious" (as serious as I can ever be, which ain't very) talk - an interactive presentation where participants will set up a live blog for themselves or their library - and one "entertaining" presentation where I will have poor, hapless librarians outside looking for a geocache. Seriously. I am so excited - this will be my first foray into presenting, and I can't wait!

OK, gotta go pack....

Thanks, Jessica!

And for the record, I hate moving, too. Such a royal pain in the tuchas!

Oh, and congrats on the presentations! Those sound really cool.

Yay for presentations! I love the fact that you're taking librarians geocaching....

Thanks for mentioning the Library 2.0 community. It is now close to 300 members!
