I know I have been rather quiet on the blog recently and I wanted to let you know I haven't disappeared! I have been thinking a lot about my blogs, my future, my interests, etc. and have figured out where I really want to take this blog. I am going to merge this with my genealogy blog. I am keeping the library blog name Amanda's Athenæum so that I can expand my focus beyond just libraries to my other interests of genealogy, cultural heritage, historical societies, museums, travel (particularly in relation to history and culture) and reading (again mostly in relation to history and culture), among other things.
I am very excited about this change and to really expand what I can post on and the amount of posts I do. I hope you will continue to follow me, but understand if you decide not to do to the expanded nature of the blog. I also am changing my host to WordPress, as they offer some features I am very excited for. My blog will now be at: http://amandasathenaeum.wordpress.com All of my old posts from this blog will be accessible there.
I will begin updating it there tomorrow. Thank you and I am sorry for the inconvenience of updating your blog reader.
