My writing goals / goal posts

I’ve thought of a tagline for Library.geek – “Exploring librarianship and your identity after children” OR “When librarianship and motherhood canoodle”

What one, what one?

I removed the title of this site, “Library.geek.nz” from its header over two years ago – why, I don’t know, but it turns out that wasn’t good web writing etiquette or even good for web design, or anything really. It makes no sense. I just thought an image said a thousand words. In a search engine however, it really doesn’t. So that’s going to change when I have more than a spare 20 minutes.

I just unearthed my notes from my filing system in my wardrobe from a something-am brainstorm a week after becoming a Mum – over three years ago. They’re all bullet-points, nothing that I can actually just write up here and capture, nor photograph as there’s names and action points (?! – so formal! Even a week after having a baby!)

I’m taking a writing for the web paper through the Open Polytechnic at the moment, hoping to complete it before child #3 arrives in Februrary 2016.

Lets hope my next post is more composed as I’m just itching to get something written to share that I still have a brain; it’s working; and I’m planning on using it again to write about what new learnings I’ve been consolidating over the past three years.

Always learning,

So much to say, so little time

So I had a child a couple of years ago and I’ve since had another – my daughters, Fern and Anahera.

Within five days after having Fern, I had a brainwave-type moment after a night feed and I wrote a tentative blogpost on a notepad next to the bed titled,

When librarianship and motherhood collide (or canoodle)

I still haven’t typed it up.

Life happened. Two wonderful new lives. More if you count whose lives theirs have affected.

I’m going to start writing again after a long hiatus. I am even courting the idea of writing for LIANZA again and writing about that writing, here.

What would you say to a column about the transition from career to new career in parenthood? I had an idea that it might be quite helpful, to document how I made the transition for all those others that are going to do exactly the same.

Let’s see how we go!
