Time to Pick it Up Again!

A friend of mine has decided to move her blogging from MySpace to Blogger, and she got me thinking. I used to blog quite a lot here at Blogger, but abandoned it when I got sucked into the MySpace vortex. And I remembered that I really liked my blog here, and have decided to resurrect it! So, Postcards from Iowa is back!


Thanks to my friend Johanna for inspiring me to start again. I will still blog at MySpace, but I'll post here as well. I've lost touch with some people who used to read this blog that don't do MySpace.

So, for those of you reading this blog for the first time, here's a little bit About Me:

I live in Coralville, Iowa. I'm the mom of an amazing 11-year-old. I'm a librarian and I love everything about being a librarian, from collection development to working with patrons, to cataloging books to doing readers' advisory. I believe that a person's right to information is one of the most important rights that they have and it is a librarian's utmost responsibility to preserve that right.

I also absolutely adore books and reading. I also really enjoy writing, and I harbor a secret desire to publish a novel someday. Of course, I actually have to actually start writing a novel for that to happen!

I love to travel. I wish I could travel more often, but time and money only allow so much! I try to take two trips a year. So far this year I've traveled in and around Napa, CA and up through Oregon and parts of Washington. A cruise to the eastern Caribbean will come in November!

Thanks for visiting and reading! I hope you'll be back!!!

Glad you decided to blog again on Blogger Elaine. I was thinking that it is a great way to record a living diary and share andmeet with like minded people.
