Sailing to New Shores

If it seems like I haven’t been blogging here as much as I used to, there’s a reason for that. Frankly, I’ve become really frustrated and disillusioned with libraries. The infighting, the pettiness, the fear of change and progress–it’s all just too much for me.

So, I’m leaving libraries and library blogging. Starting soon, I’ll be working at, and blogging about, Long John Silver’s. It may sound strange, but I really think this is a good path for me, and I’m excited to be returning to the world of fast food, which I haven’t been a part of since I was an undergrad.

I’ll miss all the friends I made in libraries, but I hope you’ll all stop by and see me at my new job. (I may even be able to throw a free slice of pineapple cream cheese pie your way, if the manager isn’t around.)

UPDATE: Looks like I’m not the only one announcing a new job today. Congratulations, Michael Sauers!

  1. Hell yeah, like Wayne Coyne in reverse or something. Let us know when you set up the Fry Cook Society of the World or whatever.

  2. The world of food blogging is way overpopulated with people talking about eating things grown within 20 miles of you and minimalism and molecular gastronomy and all that. This will be a welcome change from all of that.

    In what way can libraries learn from fast food?

    Would you like Harry Potter with that?

  3. But…WHAT ABOUT THE BABY?

  4. congrats! I think I can smell the grease from here! You made a great choice ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Lisa: I hope you know you’re sponsoring a celebration of a murderous pirate.

    Man: A pirate? Well, that’s hardly the image we want for Long John Silver’s!

  6. Do you get to wear the pirate costume home? How do drive with the eye patch on?
    Love,
    Mom (Darlene)

  8. Well, isn’t that interesting….I discovered your blog through a tweet regarding your most recent post about being a Socialist. I enjoyed your writing so much I’ve been travelling around the rest of your blog reading entries. (I really enjoy your writing style..)

    So…a first for me today….finding a cool blogger that I’ve been spending hours reading, and getting Rick Rolled on top of it. (I’ve never had the pleasure…but now I’ve been rolled)

    I look forward to reading more of your work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Thank you so much, Susanne! You just made my day. ๐Ÿ™‚
