Fuse Gone Corporate
Why, hello there.
Don’t mind me. I’m just going to poke and prod around the place. Get a feel for it. Test the floors. Check the locks. Bounce about on the sofa cushions. You know. Really dig in.
Change is scary but this is a nice little place for A Fuse #8 Production and I’m sure we’ll all get used to it. It occurs to me that perhaps there are some of you out there who don’t know me. If not, howdy. I’m the newest addition to the School Library Journal blogger circle. Yep. Just me Amy Bowllan, Brian Kenney, Chris Harris, and Diane Chen (who, without knowing about this move, wrote a rather nice piece that’s up right now regarding me blogo). I’ve been blogging for some time through Blogger, but SLJ made me an offer I just couldn’t refuse and here I am. All shipshape and sea worthy. As it were.
Okay. I can link. That’s good. My ability to post pictures will come in time. What does this superscript button do?
Ah. It makes tiny words. Both up and down. How odd.
I’ll be toying around with a lot of these features this week. As I do, feel free to give me some tips. As faithful readers will note, my blogroll is missing. In time it’ll come. Plus, eventually my past posts will migrate over to SLJ, but for the moment they are now sitting adrift at my now bereft old site. Lackaday.
Fun stuff to note. First of all, my name is misspelled as I write this. I can’t change that at the moment, but I’m sure that when you read this it’ll be okey-dokey. I never really understood why people feel the need to put a second "e" in "Betsy". It must say something about a person. A spelling Rorschach Test. Second, you’ll note that my head keeps popping up. A lot. It’s a fun picture, granted. I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m resting my chin on the head of the Ugly Duckling right in front of the Hans Christian Andersen statue in Central Park. Figured I had to work in some kidlit somehow. Don’t bother clicking on it, though. It doesn’t get any bigger.
My spell check isn’t kicking in on this site either. That’s not good as I have an atroshuss way with words. Ha.
Aw, who am I kidding? Let’s do some posts, just for the heck of it! I’ll crank this puppy up to 100 and see how fast she’ll go. WOO-HOO!
