Sometimes you just need to step back, get some perspective, reassess, and make sure you remember your vision. It’s time to dust off the shelves, do a little vacuuming, reorganize, and remember. That’s what this post is for One Little Library.
So we’re going to have a little Q&A time.
Q: Why is this blog called One Little Library?
A: I fell in love with the name One Little Library because a library is one of my favorite places to be: surrounded by books, thousands of possibilities, a million things to learn and think through. A library is a place to be cozy but sometimes challenged, a place to think about hard things, but in a safe and comforting atmosphere. On the surface, a library looks like a storehouse for books. But it’s actually a storehouse for ideas. Books are simply the media (as in plural medium—and very wonderful media, too!).
Q: What am I writing about?
A: This Little Library is a place not only to celebrate books, but to celebrate the ideas embodied in and symbolized by books. In other words, anything is fair game. However, I see the value of a theme. A theme brings cohesiveness, consistency, and clarity to a blog. Because of this, while writing about Other Stuff, I will try to retain the connections between these topics and the books they are stored in.
Q: Who is my audience?
A: Anyone who enjoys the written word. Anyone who loves to use books as launching points for great discussions. Christians. Bloggers. Readers. Writers.
Q: What goals do I have for One Little Library?
A: I have so many goals! First and foremost: the Library is getting a little cramped. I’ve got things I want to cover and I’m not sure it’s big enough to hold more bookshelves. So I really want to transition to a self-hosted WordPress blog. But renovating is a big, expensive project, so we’ll have to see just how much longer we can stay here.
- Feature more voices at One Little Library—as in guest posts. So if you want to write here, let me know!
- Vlog every once in awhile.
- Start a virtual book club. Exciting news: This is happening in May! I’m teaming up with a few other great book bloggers to start a series on wives in literature. It’s going to be awesome.
My passion for this blog is as strong as ever, and I’m excited to see it grow. I welcome any feedback you have!
