I know, I know, change can be scary but change can also be good.
This is one of the “good” times.
As you may have noticed, sometimes the blog has been a bit slow. This blog (along with some of the other SLJ blogs) are on a server that is past its prime. The blogs need to be moved, and moved they shall be!
What does this mean?
In order to make this work, this blog will be temporarily frozen as of midnight tonight, with no new posts, while the migration takes place.
Once the migration takes place, here are some of the changes:
No more slow blogs!
A blog face lift! (Call me shallow, but this may be the part I’m most excited about, the new look).
Better integration with the SLJ website, www.slj.com
When will you see all this take place?
Well, to be on the safe side, don’t expect any new posts until the new year. Which is less than two weeks away. In terms of posts I have scheduled, I’m just changing some dates of when things will be posted. I’m still reading all the Morris and YALSA Nonfiction finalists, for example, and there will be plenty of time in January before ALA Midwinter to post those reviews.
Because of how this works, it also means that it may affect comments made to posts during this time period. So it’s best to hold off (or, be prepared to redo) comments between now and then.
During this blog vacation …. I’ll be honest. I may catch up on some TV, but I’ll be reading and writing and brainstorming posts, making drafts, figuring out my calendar, because I’m not sure I can really just sit back and relax!
I’ll be tweeting about what I’m reading, and doing, and my thoughts (so many thoughts!) and feelings (so many feelings!) about books and reading and bookish things; I’m at @LizB on Twitter.
So, have a great end of December, a wonderful New Year, and see you at once all this is complete!
