Back to Blogging

I finally have time to explore blogging again. I'm at a Minitex Tech Conference and this workshop session provides time to explore the features of this blog. My first blog entry in February (when I was full of plans for completing quickly all of the "23 Things on a Stick") reflects my very basic relief at just being able to get something posted. Now I will work to refine my skills and discover the possibilities. Summer is looking really good right now!

Day 1 of "23 Things on a Stick"

Well, this was definitely not as complicated as I had feared. As with many things, anticipation is far worse than reality. I am familiar with reading blogs, but surprised at how easy they are to create. I have been impressed by the way political blogs have changed the landscape. Now I need to think about the ways that I could leverage this particular technology for the library media center at my high school. Is a list serv a blog? I have spent time lately checking out a list serv for Follett Destiny, the LMC circulation system and catalog, and that has been immediately helpful. Here's to hoping that the next 22 Things on a Stick are this interesting. Many thanks to Metronet for getting this going. Another local Media Specialist and I have committed to meeting with each other occasionally so as to make sure we actually get this done.
