After seven (wonderful) years of blogging for School Library Journal, I have made the difficult decision to resign from Bowllan’s Blog. UGH! It was certainly a decision that was mine and mine alone and one that I toiled with for weeks. Let me first say that School Library Journal is an amazing establishment with stellar folks at the helm. They have supported me and provided me with a much needed platform to share with readers the necessary issues affecting our world. So thank you, SLJ, for recognizing the importance of DIVERSITY in this literary-driven world we live in.
Actually, if you want to know the truth, my decision to move on came as a shock to me and I think I am still in shock. But as I was reflecting on my seven year anniversary and my inaugural post from May of 2005, entitled Our Journey Continues – at that moment I realized that my own journey needs to continue and now is the the time to start moving on. Have I defined that journey yet? No. That will come in time.
While there are too many people to thank, I would like to thank YOU, my devoted readers, who stayed with me during these long and (sometimes winding) roads. Life is never a straight line and neither is blogging, but I am most grateful that I had this ride with you.
