How you doin. I am like obsessed with this blog. If i had a blogger (my dad said no when i asked) i would be on it everyday sharing my stories and stuff. I am an author, play write, athlete, activist, choreographer, dancer, and singer/songwriter. I think i left a few things out. I was wondering if you have any media helper jobs open. you see, i <3 books. ( My parents wallets don't appreciate that.) And now my mom can't take me to Savage :[. So I was thinking, well i know about the Dewey decimal system and <3 being around books, so this could work. So if you have any positions, could u blog about it, and tell the GT Research teacher. She knows me. Anyway, Chow!

How YOU doin dear Bookgal!??

Thank you for your posts and I have to say LOVES your name! Of course! We DO have Media Helper jobs and once we get the MHTV positions posted (btw, your audition Thursday was AWEsome!Shhh!) Mrs. Black and I will get going on that application process! Hope you DO apply!

Now, if you need more books to hold you over see me Monday - I have some advanced copy editions I can pass on to you. Hmmm at least 3 (one for each comment heh heh) I'm shameless that way!

And your Dad is right to be hesitant to have his kid blog under the age of 13! What if you give him Editing privs? Read my posts about digital awareness, digital footprints & COPA

Here's an idea...Want to guest blog here? Write a blog post, get your parents to OK it, and email it to me (or give it to me as a .DOC on a flash drive) and I'll publish it for you. How about "Bookgal's Guide to (fill in the blank) Scary books for Fall Reads? Fun Fall Reads? ....So happy you're in our school Bookgal!

You rock!
