So before November – and 2011! – completely fade into a distant memory, I thought I’d make sure you didn’t miss my most recent blog post.  Further to my guest post at Letters to a Young Librarian, I also contributed a piece to Read It 2011. Read It 2011 was a blog run by the NSW Readers’ Advisory Working Group. It was the online home of a monthly reading group that encouraged Australian (and all) library users to read and tweet about what they were reading. Monthly themes helped participants decide what they would read each month. I was stoked to be asked to contribute a piece for November :) As November was Movember and Picture Book Month, I wrote about picture books and depression: you can check it out here.

FYI: To celebrate the National Year of Reading in Australia, Read It 2011 has become Love2Read.

NEWSFLASH! Blogging drought breaks!

Well Dear Reader, I have finally blogged! I could list reasons/guesses why I have taken such a long break, but I may never finish that list, and therefore never post. Ever again!

Jessica Olin from the ever-helpful & oh-so-interesting Letters to a Young Librarian asked me to contribute a post. I was stoked :)

Letters to a Young Librarian is a blog – an advice forum of sorts – where practising librarians share advice to new and other not-so-new library folk. If you don’t read this blog, you should. I decided to write about perfectionism, procrastination and asking for help. I’d be super-pleased if you would check out my post: Be Courageous; Ask for Help.

Oh and feel free to leave a comment there, or here.

Thanks for reading!
