UoL Library Blog

Develop, debate, innovate.

Bloggy review meeting

Posted by gazjjohnson on 28 August, 2008

The four of us (Selina, Sarah, Keith and myself) had a meeting this morning to reflect back on the development of this blog, and how we move into the next phase for it.  Looking at the posting stats we were quite pleased to see that we’ve had an average of 1 post every two days (or .75 posts/day if you only count the week days) which isn’t a bad ratio.  Goodly amount of discussion and comment too.

Major things we decided were:

  • To continue with the blog as an internal reflective tool for library staff
  • To appraise management of our experiences so far
  • To invite a select group of additional people to start reading, commenting or posting (our Population II Group)

There were one or two other matters, mostly in terms of layout and design as well, which I’ll tweak shortly.  But all in all we agreed that this had been a very useful tool for expanding our individual knowledge of developments and issues across the UoL library service.  Come the end of October we’ll look back at it again, and consider what the next phase should comprise – potentially making it available to all lib-staff to read at the least.

    Sorting out that log in is still eluding me…

    I’d suggest falling on your own sword, but that would be uncharitable. 😉 Maybe we should just kill it off and teach people who want to comment the way to login via the dashboard as the primary route; rather than tacking on something to help them that uglifies the blog by 25%?

    Might save your valuable time for now. If it does become an issue (as talking with Test Population 2 and garnering their reflections will have to be part of our Oct/Nov review) then perhaps it’ll be worth revisiting. But if I were you I’d leave well enough alone 🙂

    I think you is right – will take out the admin widget for now, don’t really like it.

    someone sitting next to me here couldn’t find how to log in – so we may have a problem. perhaps will need revisiting…

    But that’s assuming that WP is intuative (which I don’t think it is). I’d compile a short “How to” sheet on it before we let Gen2 loose on it, and that should answer a lot of problems.

    Logging in (it was me!) is ok once you know that you have to trick WordPress by asking to comment when you don’t really want to. A “how to” sheet would solve that.

    I just bookmarked ( and so when my system kills off my cookies (which it has a habit of doing) go there first.

  12. Good business means to buy items as low in cost as possible and sell them
    at the highest price you can get for them.
    ¨ Don’t waste your money trying to buy lists of video game distribution companies. It is best though to think of a niche so you can plan on your marketing strategy.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve gott to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the
    way off conten so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got aan awful lot of text for only having
    one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  20. Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
