Thanks to everyone for your kind words and participating in my reader poll!

The polls are still open (mostly because I can’t figure out how to close them), but let’s take a gander at the results…

Question #1: How old are you?

Mostly 20-29… Good to know!

Question #2: How did you find The Amateur Librarian?

About half and half between Real Life Friend/Family and Other Blogs… also good to know!  Probably mostly thanks to my Mom… and the regular link ups I participate in.  I worry sometimes that I do too many link ups, but I enjoy those posts so much and I’ve found a lot of great blog  friends through them too!

Question #3: Yadda yadda, what’s your favorite post in a series?

OK, so most people prefer random life/craft updates.  That’s cool!  I like writing those posts, so I’m glad they’re appreciated.

Question #4: Which is your favorite category?

Yay, book chat!  And All of the Above!

Question #5: Which category would you like to see more of on the blog?

Amount is fine as-is… gee you guys, you’re easy to please!  But I agree with the next one too, Book Chat… I mostly write up my monthly Reading Log and that’s about it these days.  Now that I’m not working in a school library anymore, I’m not exposed to all the new children’s lit or using books in my lesson plans.  I’ll have to ruminate on ramping up the Book Chat… food for thought!

And just for fun…

Question #6: Choose our next weekend adventure in San Francisco!

And the Sutro Bath Ruins it is!  I’m super excited because I’ve wanted to visit them for a long time, but it’s on the opposite end of the city so the distance has always made me put it off.  But this is just the motivation we need to go check it out!

And last but not least…

Question #7: I’m thinking of starting an Etsy shop.  What should I name it?

The Periwinkle Pebble is the winner!  I’m still thinking on this one, but it’s definitely helpful to hear other people’s reactions.  It’s funny because I just threw Periwinkle Pebble out there as a joke, since so many Etsy shops (and blogs too) are a Color + Object or Name + Noun.  But I have to admit… it’s pretty cute.

Thank you again to everyone for participating!  I had a lot of fun checking out the polls over the last week and learning more about my readers!  It’s hard to believe I’ve been writing here for three years… I’ve had so much fun along the way and I’m looking forward to many more!
