So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

I wanted to believe that I had the head space to keep working on this blog when I published the last post. I thought if I published less frequently or something that I'd be able to sneak it in. But things haven't slowed down at all since early July, and there are a lot of things competing for my time and attention. My priorities have changed.

I need to express my thanks, regardless. I have gotten so much from the time I've spent on this blog. The relationships I developed would have been enough to be worth all the work, but it's no exaggeration to say that this blog changed my career and life. I will forever be grateful for your attention and support as I've worked through topic after topic. Also, all the guest authors who willingly gave me their time and thoughts have blown me away with their generosity. It was an amazing experience and an honor to run this blog.

All of this is to say that I'm not going to be updating LtaYL anymore, not for the foreseeable future anyway. I'm going to leave it up because the breadth of coverage is important. Also, there are posts that still get hits on the regs. But that's all from me.

So... so long, and thanks for all the fish (and trash). I may be back, but probably not for a long while.


  1. Thank you for everything you've done! I was going through library school in 2012 and 2013, and this blog really helped me get a feel for librarianship

  2. Thank you so much for this blog! It's been excellent, and I'm glad you did it, but I'm also glad you're able to make the call that works for you, now.

  3. Long time reader, first time poster :) Thank you for all your work over the years, this site has been a must read for me for as long as I can remember. I appreciate you and look forward to wherever and whenever I might see your voice next!

  4. This is such a great space you created. I am glad you did it, and I know you know this, but it's also fine and better than fine that you need to do new and other stuff in different spaces now. x

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you. <3
