I have been thinking about blogging and social media a lot recently. Currently I have been acting as a guide for the Learn@APNK program, and I am heading to Gisborne next week to talk to the librarians there about Social Media. Thinking about how to explain Social Media, and how to “sell” it without sounding too evangelical has occupied my mind. What are the benefits? How do we do it? What’s best practice? Are questions I have been asking myself and looking to answer.
Another reason blogging in particular has been troubling me, is the fact that my library blog Tararua District Libraries has reached it’s two year birthday. That’s a lot of blogging. The readership of the blog has been trending down, and I am wondering if I am getting a bit stale in my posting. I have been frustrated in not being able to get my colleagues more involved, and since I am writing for four blogs at the moment one gets a little tired. 😦
I am feeling I need some sort of refresher to boost enthusiasm and inspiration, but I am unsure where to find it 😆
On a positive note, reaching the two year mark on the Tararua blog feels good 🙂 So happy birthday to me/it/us.
