I did a tiny little bit of blogging this past year...as a library book blogger.
They were seeking new blood for the library's blog, and I put my name in. It's not very often, but gratifying. I've been posting under the name Enji because there already was a Heidi writing for the blog. This is going to end, and my future posts will be under the name Heidi H.
Here they are:
Great Books I Never Would Have Chosen
(I forgot to submit a title, so it's not exactly a title in my style.)
YA for Grown-ups: Historical Fiction Edition
Highlanders, Fairies, and Vampires, oh my!
YA for Adults: Tough Girls You'll Love
Mary Doria Russell: From Sparrow to Doc
In July, we had to cut hours and staff at the library, so the library's blog went from several posts a week to one post or less. We all have less time to do these kinds of things, because you know if a library's hours reduce, there aren't necessarily any less items checked out, right? We're just that much busier during the times we're open.
Oh, should I mention, if you live in Multnomah County, you should be voting for the Library District? That's right, I knew I didn't have to, because you already are planning to vote Yes. You are not my friend if you are voting No. Ppffffthhht.
Hey, I just noticed the Google Doodle for today is commemorating the 161st Anniversary of Moby Dick. And a few minutes before that I noticed my own blog's post with the highest page views (6705) is Moby Dick: Chapters 29-34, from my slow read. I don't know why that one over all the other ones. My second-highest page view is Moby Dick: Chapters 55-60 with 2695 views.
