I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
We just started using Meebo for IM reference. I am not sure how it will work out, but I think we will be able to sustain the service. Great blog! I had the same dream about my library burning down when I first started as the director. I'll meebo you sometime.
Martha, thanks for checking out my blog! I'm glad you think it's cool. And I am especially glad that you checked out some of the libraryland pages - I think those get overlooked, but are useful for people new to the field (or new to 2.0 stuff). I am checking out your blog - hey, join library links! Peace.
