  • About my blog:
    www.libraryscenester.wordpress.com
    Far more comments than posts
    Monthly stats across bottom of slide - will discuss the spike shortly
    Started in 2007 while a LIS student at Syracuse University
    About: conferences I attend, advice for LIS students, recent graduates, or potential librarians, reflections on news, experiences, work projects, book reviews, publications, networking, professional associations.
    More broadly: Things I learn & questions I have

  • Opportunities for me:
    Involvement in professional organizations
    2009 PaLA-sponsored ALA Emerging Leader
    Asked to co-chair 2011 ACRL Virtual Conference
    Opportunities for more writing/publishing
    Guest post for ACRLog (12/2010)
    C&RL News column editorship
    The Bowker Annual (consulting editor is local - connect via blog)
    Networking (digital & physical)
    8/1/09 stat spike - blog post featured in AL Direct
    In a new state
    Featured ACRL member of the week
    Friendship, support & personal satisfaction
    Hone my writing skills
    Learn, ask questions, instant gratification of publishing
    Creative outlet

  • Giving back: opportunities for others:
    Collaboration
    "I found a link to your blog in an online library community, and you mentioned that you were interested in collaborating with librarians to write/speak about various topics." - email
    Building connections
    "The response from your blog/tweet was perfect! Thank you so much for taking the time to connect me to other librarians..." -email
    Sharing knowledge
    "I just read your post that was featured in AL Direct and wanted to let you know that we will be linking to it as resource from the ACRL Recruitment and Retention wiki." -email

  • Advice
    Tie physical to digital
    Business card example
    Be genuine & professional
    No split personality disorder
    Something you’re passionate about - if not, it will show!
    You can hurt your online reputation if you’re not careful
    You might be opening up the door to criticism. Personally, I think it’s worth the risk.
    Monitor what others are saying about you/your blog
    Employers are Googling you
    What will they find?
    Help them find the good stuff
    2010 report from Pew Internet & American Life Project says that more than half of Internet users search for information about themselves online. (http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2010/Reputation-Management.aspx)
