Once upon a time, a little blog was born. And like all curious little blogs, eventually it wanted to know where it came from…..
The Librarian Next Door started as a class assignment. In the Fall of 2008, I was taking a social media course in graduate school and was instructed to start and maintain a blog as a semester-long project. I’ve always loved to read, so it seemed natural to start a blog all about books.
At the time, I knew very little about blogging and even less about the book blogging world. I simply dove in and figured it out as I went along. Now, seven (7!!!) years and thousands of blog posts later, The Librarian Next Door is still reading, still writing and still making it up as I go along.
(I’m not actually a librarian. I just thought the name sounded cool. I do respect and admire real librarians. They are awesome.)
If you’d like to know more about me, I have a Tumblr called Ordinary Mer. You can also find me on Twitter. See what I’m reading on my Yearly Reading Challenge page or check out the book blogs I love on my Literary Love page.
And they all lived happily ever after.
