I'm trying to be better about posting here, but all I have running through my head is "Citation analysis, stats project, teen project, children's project, stats test, citation analysis..."
I bit off more than I could chew with one of my projects and I'm hurting now, especially since I cannot get my relationships in Access to work properly. Some of them work, some of them don't, and I just can't figure out the difference between the working ones and the non-working ones.
Via Chicken Spaghetti comes this snide essay about amateur book reviewers (AKA bloggers), complete with a reference to Pooters. Pot, kettle, black? I'm not saying the author of the essay is not a good writer, I'm just saying that perhaps she takes herself a bit too seriously. I also find it a bit hard to believe that there is not one single well-written line in any book blog ever.
I'm not personally bothered, since the target audience for my book blog is seven- to 12-year-olds, and last I heard, they're not the target audience for very many real, serious review venues. I also want my book blog to be interactive, so kids feel comfortable posting their own opinions of what they read. Reading and having opinions about what you read are not the exclusive domain of those who have been specially selected.
