Other Connections

Posted July 18, 2010 By Jandy

First, most of you who follow my blog know that I had major surgery a couple weeks ago. I’m recovering fine, but I let myself fall out of the loop for a while. I know that doesn’t explain 3 postless weeks before that, but what can I say? In the summertime I don’t like to spend as much time on my computer. Just the social connections like Facebook and favorite blogs eat away at my time.

While I was in early recovery, this email came to me:

Hi Jandy,

My name is Celina from We wanted to let you know that we featured your blog in one of our recent articles on our own blog. (100 Book Recommendations to Get You Through the Summer), is linked below and could be a fun way to share this announcement with your readers.


If you find something interesting or similar, please let me know.



Today, while catching up on one of my favorite blogs, Will Unwound, I discovered that my web pages are one of the sites he now checks regularly. Will Manley is a retired librarian who has been writing about the field for years and recently started his popular blog. If even half his followers click the link, my site will get busy, at least for a short while. Now I have to be responsible to keep it updated, sigh. Yeah, yeah, I know I usually do, but the pressure!

It’s nice to be recognized.
