Holiday Wishes

Happy holiday wishes to you!

This year at Thanksgiving, Krafty Librarian analyzed her blog using a number of fun tools. Immediate Past President Mary suggested that we try these tools on ConnectMidwest. I was particularly interested in how much this little blog is worth. Using this tool on Dane Carlson’s Business Opportunities Weblog determines that ConnectMidwest is worth a whopping $1,129.08. The Blog Readability Test inexplicably is unable to analyze this blog. Wonder what that is all about?
Keeping in mind that the blog entries here come from a number of authors, The Typealyzer says that our blog authors in aggregate are “ESTJ – The Guardians” and describes us this way:

The organizing and efficient type. They are especially attuned to setting goals and managing available resources to get the job done. Once they┬┤ve made up their mind on something, it can be quite difficult to convince otherwise. They listen to hard facts and can have a hard time accepting new or innovative ways of doing things.
The Guardians are often happy working in highly structured work environments where everyone knows the rules of the job. They respect authority and are loyal team players.

Kind of fun but I think that part about having a hard time accepting innovation is way off base. Hmmm.
Most of us at MPOW will be enjoying an extended holiday this year. I’m really looking forward to it! Hope you have some time off over the holidays too. Enjoy!

Something to cheer about!

Yes, the weather outside is frightful. But the Midwest Chapter has something to cheer about! Yesterday’s MLA-FOCUS announced that chapter member Ruth Holst, Associate Director, Greater Midwest Region NN/LM, will be the next MLA President-elect. Congratulations!
Also announced was the election of chapter members Sandra Martin and Eileen Stanley to the MLA Nominating Committee. More congratulations!
And did you know that the Midwest Chapter is already well represented on the MLA Board of Directors with two chapter members, Jane Blumenthal and Linda Walton, currently serving on the board?
