Last June when I started my blog, which has come to be called The Thin Red Line, it was basically my personal diary or journal, and since I happen to work at a library and am literally immersed in books pretty much All the time, it also included the occasional book review. And then one day I stumbled into Blog Catalog, where I got and took some excellent advice from James Bashkin, who’s Nearly Nothing But Novels blog was one of the first book-related blogs I found online, and in theory migrated my personal “journalling” over to this blog and focused the other site more tightly on book reviews.
Trouble is, in over a year of having this blog I have only written in it twice, and used it as a test site a couple of times and never actually got around to the journal. My friend Bev Sykes whose Funny The World has been showing the world what a great daily online journal looks like since long before anyone ever conceived of the term “blog”. So it is with a tip of the hat to Bev that I nervously and cautiously begin this new experiment in writing daily about the wacky, wonderful world of Alan and Ron and life at the library. I’m a bit scared I won’t know what to say some days, but I suppose I will just have to wing it. So welcome to my world and I hope you enjoy your visit.
