Good News / Bad News: An Unexpected Delay

Good News! Ye Olde Blog is getting an upgrade.  We’re talking fancy new server, hoity-toity design, the works, baby!

Bad News! I might be down until that upgrade happens.  And . . . um . . . that might be until . . . uh . . .

the end of the year.


Good News! It’s not just me.  Everyone here at SLJ is getting a new look.

Bad News! If you comment on any of my posts from now until the blog comes back the comment probably won’t migrate to the new site.  Like, ever.

Good News! I’m getting a kickin’ logo.  A logo so kickin’ that I’m convinced it contains a secret code.  I will be asking those of you who see it to crack this code.

Bad News! There’s a possibility that my URL will change and everyone will have to reset their bookmarks accordingly.

Good News! Uh . . . I wuv you?

Seriously, just know that when I AM up and running there may be a sudden influx of lots and lots and lots of end of the year reviews.  Plus my 100 Marvelous Children’s Books of 2012 list.  And more predictions for Caldecott & Newbery!  Stay strong, folks.  I’ll be back when I can (and you can sorta follow me on Twitter at @FuseEight until then anyway).

See you in the new year!
