Via Stephen, Steven and Stephens:
4. No matter how great you are, your career depends on communicating. The way to get better at anything, including communication, is by practicing. Blogging is good practice.
Well said. One thing that came up in conversation with Mr. Abram at PLA is that a blogger can have a voice in the LIS blogosphere from the smallest, most remote library in the world and still reach a huge audience if they are putting their blogging presence out there. This, to me, insures we get original voices. Original thoughts. And best practices to try out in our own orgainzations.
I like this positive spin of getting employers and emplyees to talk about blogging, its impact on work and the “story” a librarian’s blog tells. Nice.
Nice directory of LIS Weblogs to add to the mix.
