Blog Review meeting 2.0

Posted by gazjjohnson on 18 November, 2008

Keith, Sarah W, Selina and myself just held our latest blog review meeting.  In lieu of minutes here are a few brief notes on our discussions:

  • We reviewed the blog’s development to date and agreed that an excellent voice has been found for the posts by all authors.  As a result the blog could be regarded as a defacto standard for other potential Library blogs, along with a body of expertise to advise as needed.
  • The award nomination from Alan, and praise from CILIP for our work was noted.
  • We agreed that the community focus of the blog would remain those already invited to contribute (along with their successors and alternates) so as to ensure it remains relevant to the professional activities of the library.
  • PMG have asked us to go talk about the blog to them, so I’ll be asking them for a date and sorting out which of us will go along.
  • Questions from us to PMG include: whom should we advocate the blog to internally, whom would they be advocating it to, the matter of Twirl’s availability to those staff that require it and the possibility of PMG making a post occasionally (they are already encouraged to, but have not yet posted or commented).
  • The new Enquiry Manager will be invited by myself to become involved with the blog in some respect.
  • We agreed to take the requirement for each comment to be approved off to see if this increases the number of comments.  However, we’re not allowing anonymous commenting so we have an audit trail to follow if needed to the source of any comments.
  • We agreed to tell suitable local contacts about the blog, if we’ve not mentioned it already.
  • We agreed to notify all library staff about the blog, and invite them to comment.
  • We agreed that we will remove the block on search engines detecting the blog in January, thus making the blog visible to all and in keeping with the OA movement.  Noting that it is already visible if you are aware of the URL.
  • We agreed to meet to review the blog again in Feb/Mar 2008

So all in all, we are pleased with the blog as a tool

    I’d welcome contributions from PMG, but it’s vital:
    a) for you to retain editorial control/independence
    b) that they understand that a blog is a conversation not a broadcast and are willing to respond to points raised.

  3. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful
    blog!

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed
    to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100%
    positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

  7. Hello there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.
    I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look
    forward to new posts.

    In fact social networks have revolutionized our
    lives by incorporating all the basic elements of a person’s social life in one place.
    Founded in March 2010, Pinterest has become the fastest-growing
    social media site on the web, gaining 145% more users since January 2012 alone.
    It does mean figuring out where your target audience is engaging (social networking
    sites) and developing a strategy for how you’re going
    to reach them.
