Ken points to an interview with David Kline, who just published a book called Blog! He pulls out this impressive quote.
After bloggers master the fundamentals of this new medium, they will come to value belonging more than hearing themselves talk. Also, this sense of being a member of something bigger than themselves will drive them to shape their postings to be of service
I truly believe librarians who blog professionally have a great sense of community, especially those who have avoided the ME ME ME mentality and looked toward the greater good. Do you know how many librarians may be looking to us — the biblioblogosphere — as a means to understand and keep up with issues in LIS?
