Adventures in blog-stalkingPosted: June 21, 2011
I already attempt to keep up with dozens of library blogs in Google Reader, but it has been nice to see the fresh perspectives offered by my fellow cpd23 participants.
Here are a few of highlights from my Thing 2 investigation.
Growth of a Librarian – Erin and I have a new little bond over our hesitations…
Lauren’s Library Blog – Lauren made me smile with her great analogies to describe entering a new profession.
Perhaps the most important part of Thing 2 for me is getting more comfortable commenting on other people’s posts and truly making the experience about conversation. For as long as I’ve been reading blogs, it’s pretty pitiful how rarely I’ve commented. Sometimes, I think I’m trying to reduce my unread feed count so quickly I don’t really take time to absorb what I read, so perhaps stopping to comment will help me get more out of my reading. Plus, it has been pretty fun to receive comments so far. I can only assume other people enjoy feedback as well.
Although I’ve taken the initial steps from long-time reader to first-time commenter, I think I need a goal moving forward. One comment a day ought to be doable, don’t you think?
