I was just IMing with a trusted colleague and we hit on the influx of librarian and library blogs of late. I was reminded of some notes I made before a talk about blogging last spring. If you are just starting out, here are some things you might want to ponder:
A personal blogging mission statement: what are your goals? Your focus? It doesn’t have to be huge but it’s a good step to take.
Your blogging voice will develop over time – but be true to yourself and it will come faster.
Some folks don’t take to blogging after trying it. That’s ok. Write a sign off post and find another tool for your creativity.
Play nice. Cite your inspirations. Have fun.
