Grafedie In The Library has been a learning, growing experience for me over time. At first, I wanted to use this blog as a vehicle to share my reader advisory skills, hoping that I could improve my writing skills in addition to promoting books that we had at my library. That was the intent, and I was perfectly happy blogging in my own little world. My opinions were not controversial, or political or witty so there was no reason for any one particular group of readers, or library user to even notice.
But as time went on, I let go of the Library related posts and concentrated on adding my GardenSpot page and documenting our Hiking trips. Two things that have come to be my passion. This post is just a bit of retrospect, looking back over a few years how I have changed and continue to learn new things. Recently I have been listening to Podcasts. My favorites are on Sustainability, Horticulture and Gardening.
Just a bit of rambling

There just are not enough hours in the day to keep up to snuff with all the changes in Libraries! I am trying my best to stop in on other blogs, read journal articles, comment on other blogs, think how I can apply all I am reading to my programs at my library. So much is happening, Its a great time to be in this field.
Recently, I have been following the Hyperlinked Library Mooc. Registration was closed by the time I actually tried to join, so I feel somewhat like a snoop, reading all the entries, and dropping in on Modules. Exciting to be witnessing something as massive as this, I believe there are around 400 participants? (feel free to correct me, at least i will know that someone is reading my entries)
I will be posting my thoughts on my blog, feel free to comment and join me in peeking in on this exciting online class!
