How long have you been blogging?
I've been blogging regularly since 2005, but that's my personal blog. This blog, which I regard as my 'professional' blog, started just last month!
Why did you start blogging?
I was inspired to start this blog by the 23 mobile things course. I wanted to record and respond to what I was learning there, but this blog has already expanded to other library-related topics, which I'm happy about :) I also hope to connect with other library professionals through this blog.
How many times a week do you post an entry?
So far, every few days, but for #blogjune.... EVERYDAY! C'mon!
How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?
Quite a few... I have a blogroll that I check regularly (library blogs) and there are also a few non-library blogs that I like reading. They have to have a theme though. If the theme is just 'me' I get bored quickly.
Do you comment on other people’s blogs? Do you keep track of how many visitors you have?
I sometimes comment on other people's blogs. That's something I want to do more of in #commentjuly. I do keep track of how many visitors I have, why not? It motivates me to write.
Did you ever regret a post that you wrote?
No. But I have regretted tweets.
Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog?
Not really, because I don't use my blog to write about myself. I use it to reflect on library things, but I guess one side of my personality comes through.
Do you blog under your real name? Yep.
Are there topics that you would never blog about?
There's only one topic I blog about - anything relating (in any way) to LIBRARIES :)
What is the theme/topic of your blog?
Do you have more than one blog? If so, why?
Yes, I have a personal blog where I store and describe all of my best photos (I used up so much space that I had to pay for extra, grrr) and record important / fun / memorable days in my life. I have a professional blog for reflection on happenings in the library world. I like to keep the two separate.
What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?
Having a record of my thoughts that I can go back to and a place to curate content that I've found useful. More recently, it's been a rewarding way to connect with people in the library world. Also, just seeing something that I created up on the internet is pretty cool!
So, why do you continue to blog?
What can I say, I'm addicted.
