Farewell Bloglines!

I just saw the message that Bloglines is officially shutting down October 1. I have used this RSS newsreader for a very long time because it is easy to use. Even in my technology workshops I have always used Bloglines as my RSS newsreader example. It will be sorely missed!

My Summer

It has been too long since I posted on my blog. The summer zoomed by and the school year is about to start. Here is the news since the last time I posted: Since July 1 I am now the only staff member of the Information Center. It has gone amazingly well. I will get a part-time person for 10 or so hours a week starting next week. This will be a great help because I need someone to take care of the clerical work. The books and videos to be shelved are adding up fast. It has been interesting working more face-to-face with patrons in the Information Center. The past few weeks saw some frantic requests for videos for professional development. Of course, a few videos in particular have been perpetually checked out and have waiting lists. Quite a lot of books and videos checked out during the summer.  I’m adding new books to the collection a little at a time because I don’t have a huge book budget.

I took this past week off since I don’t know when I will be able to take time off again in the near future. Friday was a furlough day and with Labor Day coming up it made for a nice long vacay. Next week  will be a day short but jam-packed: a staff meeting Tuesday afternoon, an all day workshop I’m presenting with a colleague Thursday and a few meetings in between. I will bet that September will go by as fast as July and August!

Technology-wise I bought a new smart phone, the HTC Evo. I love this thing! I finally have a true smart phone and it is very wise! When I’m home watching tv I have to play games on it. I only have free games but my favorites are Darts, Clink and Word Drop. Action Potato is fun for a short time and I’ve just downloaded the beta version of Angry Birds and it is driving me crazy!  I’m on level 8 and I can’t beat it. Dang!


My book is now available!
