Inside Practically Paradise

Six years of personal blogging

November 2005 I began blogging for myself at Previously I had been posting for school library organizations like TASL (Tennessee Association of School Librarians). After chatting with Doug Johnson, I felt strong enough to start sharing my own thoughts via blogs. My first post was about the need for original thought

Two years later I began blogging for SLJ and changed my blog presence to Practically Paradise. Over 1,000 posts later, I still feel I have much to share. Sometimes the thoughts are so busy spinning in my head, that I don’t write and share. I’m torn between perfection and practicality. My resolution for this seventh year of blogging is to share swiftly and stop searching for perfection.
