Talking about my blog regeneration
Posted by gazjjohnson on 3 March, 2009
I have just returned from the outer limits of the 2nd floor, where I’ve been having a lively discussion with Stu Johnson and colleague Marta about blogging. Stu tells me that he’s been very impressed with the UoL Library blog and what we’ve been doing with it, which is really great to hear. As regular readers know I’m a big advocate of blogs as knowledge based resources and communication channels within organisations (as well as without); so I’m delighted our own little corner of the blogosphere has encouraged some other people to have a go.
It is interesting that a lot of the challenges we faced in setting up and populating this blog are uppermost in the their minds as well; getting content, ensuring engagement from staff, coherent voice and privacy issues. From what I heard they’re well on their way to creating a first class blog for their staff to share experience and learn from; so I wish them well. I’ll look forward to reading it (if and when they allow public visitors).
I think my one regret from the meeting is that once again I don’t have anything especially exciting top blog about at this point; but perhaps we should be grateful I’m not writing about digital preservation and curation again!
