Two posts in one day! This is unprecedented.
I just wanted to thank everyone who may have voted for me in the Salem Press 2012 Library Blog awards. I am proud to say that my blog won in the "Quirky" category, which makes me especially happy because public librarianship is, at the very least, extremely quirky. There were a lot of great blogs featured in the contest, and I'm honored to be in their company.
They even emailed me a badge to put on my site, which I guess makes it EXTRA official!
Even if you didn't get a chance to vote in the contest, I want to thank everyone who reads/follows/comments on/promotes/supports/merely glances at my blog. The whole reason I started blogging was to raise awareness about libraries and show that there are many aspects of being a librarian that people might not see - and also, hopefully, to show the importance of libraries in peoples' lives, children in particular. Being acknowledged in this way gives me hope that people are paying attention and that libraries will be around for a long, long time.
(Also, a special thanks to my sister, who I have to give credit for suggesting the name Screwy Decimal! It sure beats my original blog name "Libraries R Crazy 'n' Stuff.")
