There is an old adage for authors which states ‘write what you know’. I had thought at first I would entitle this Confessions of a Spinster Librarian while this is accurate it wouldn’t work for a number of reasons:
1. It sounds like a bad porn movie.
2. It makes me sound dateless and desperate. I’ve come to accept being nearly 50 and still single – but that is for another post.
3. While yes, I am currently a librarian I am trying to re-brand myself so Confessions of an Information Professional was a bit too wordy though less pornographic sounding in nature.
As I mention in my first post when asked about what I wished to write I had replied life and stuff. The stuff, if I adhere to the writer’s adage, about which I know or claim to know, is the following: knitting, ballroom dance, cooking, work and seeking of same, being an introvert, my cat and just about life in general. Admittedly for most of the things on this list I have friends, colleagues or acquaintances that are much more skilled than I. Please know this is only my point of view. As many of you know I have a somewhat snarky attitude toward many things – I have actually had other words used but I’m trying to keep this G rated or PG at the very least. I also don’t want any of my family members who might read this thinking I have a mouth like a – insert euphemism of your own choosing. My friends know otherwise. Speaking of my friends they should not fear. This is not a journal of any type. I am not going to write anything personal in nature unless it directly applies to me. If I mention any of my friends there will be nothing negative and they will be referred to in only general terms. I value my friendships and would do nothing to jeopardize those. I am going to endeavor to keep things very general and stay away from controversial subjects. This is not going to be a forum for me to rant and rave about life but an effort to look at things in a more humorous light and perhaps help me get over the panic attacks that have recently been plaguing me. If any of my friends think I have crossed a line send me an e-mail and I will pull the posting. As to the general public - if they don't like what I have to say then let them write their own blog.
