This blog has been reborn. Actually, this post has been reborn too. Reborn in the way that the internet ate the first post I wrote just as I was ready to post it (and apparently there was no draft temporarily saved) and now I have a second chance to write it again. I just want to go to bed after all that, but I feel like I need to try to re-create what was lost, even if it is more succinct and less jovial.
As of September 9, 2012, this blog (formerly known as “Lead me not into temptation, especially not bookstores” located at www.learn.thecorkboard.org/hennebe) migrated to www.liburiedalive.com. The new name, “Li-buried Alive,” is a play on the mispronunciation of the word “library” by little kids. As for the “buried alive,” the focus is more on the “alive” part, since I believe that libraries are very much alive. You could say they are a “buried treasure” that just needs to be sought after.
Even though I do not have my former instructor Kyle prompting me on blog post topics and timing, I still have plenty to say (without the pressure of writing something that I knew was being graded). In fact, I have a small stock-pile of notes that I want to translate into posts.
Obviously, there was a bit of a silence from me since my last post in August. Let’s just say that August was rather tumultuous for me personally (and I’m glad it’s over). And well, September was back to school–the day-job kind, not the higher-ed pursuit. Things are a bit more under control around here and now that both organization and inspiration have struck, we’re back online!
Speaking of my day-job, if you weren’t aware, I am a high school ESL teacher. I am working on a new teacher website for the ELL program that I run at www.fortesl.wordpress.com. It’s not live for the students/parents yet, but I’m liking how it looks so far.
