Welcome to our blog. The grand purpose for having a blog is still a bit murky…but I have grand visions of this blog being my anti-scrapbook. I cannot imagine me scrapbooking…the thought of stickers and little paper beach umbrellas and old “memories” (i.e. scraps of paper posing as memories) all glued together in an expensive book seems beyond me. But I can imagine spending a lot of time and effort on a blog – including photo albums, links to sites I visit and blogs I like to read, updates on how and what Telfer and I are doing…today I even figured out how to link to our Netflix queue (see sidebar).
As a librarian, I have been reading up/teaching classes on new forms of communication. In the last ten months or so I have learned almost too much about blogs and RSS and the exciting and useful things one may do with this technology.
I have thought about starting a library-related blog, but a personal one seems more fun and do-able at the moment. I chose Typepad over other blogging services like blogger or radiouserland because of its features, word-of-mouth praise, and to be honest, the way Six Apart designs its Typepad service and website.
Telfer and I are going to be purchasing a digital camera this weekend…we are still deciding. When we purchase techie stuff, Telfer chooses primarily on the way it looks (i.e. it must be cool) and I choose on price. We are negotiating and hopefully will meet somewhere in the middle.

Do either of you choose techie stuff based on functionality? What if you found a really cool looking digital camera that was cheap but was lousy at everything else??? 🙂 Have fun shopping! As a librarian, I want to know if you’ve checked consumer reports?
I think your blog is very cool. Thanks for letting me look and for explaining the whole thing to me. I look forward to seeing all your updates.
Your’s was my first blog site to visit – however, I have heard the kids at school talking about such things…it was way too fun! Way to go, kids! Andrea, I honestly can’t see you scrapbooking, either! Looks like you are way too busy reading books! 🙂
