Blatant Self-Promotion: Blogging Article in LJ!

I am resurfacing from the craziness of editing PGTL: The Book to share a link to the blogging in libraries article I wrote for Library Journal. Many thanks to Rebecca Miller for the opportunity and for shepherding the article (and me!) through the publication process. Big, big thanks to all the library bloggers who contributed their insights to the article -- it'd be nothing without you, Theresa Stoner, Terri Bennett, Adrienne Furness, Eli Neiburger, John Blyberg, David Lisa, Judy Hohmann, Marianne Kruppa, Amanda Etches-Johnson, and Molly Williams!

Now, I know that my fellow Pop bloggers have significant items of BSP to share, so I'm encouraging them to share them soon!

Welcome to School Library Journal Readers!

The February 2007 issue of School Library Journal is now available, in print and on-line. I'd like to welcome SLJ readers, who came here via my article in that issue of SLJ, Curl Up with a Cup of Tea and a Good Blog.

If you're not familiar with SLJ, please go check out my article. It has my thoughts on why the kidlitosphere (blogs about children's and teen lit) is such a happening place along with a list of must-read blogs.

For those who have only read it online, what you're missing: a photo of me blogging with my niece and nephew. Getting the photo taken was pretty exciting, and I'll be blogging about that at my book blog, A Chair, Fireplace, And A Tea Cozy, later this week. Also in the print version of SLJ: some of the graphics and photos from the highlighted blogs.

If you're looking for more must-read blogs about children's and teen lit, check out the blogroll at Tea Cozy (it's on the left). And I'm also highlighting a blog a day, under the handy title and label Blog of the Day.
