    • What is a blog?
      • “ A blog is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is a shortened form of weblog or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called ‘blogging’. Individual articles on a blog are called ‘blog posts,’ ‘posts’ or ‘entries’. A person who posts these entries is called a ‘blogger’… Blogs use a conversational style of documentation. Often blogs focus on a particular ‘area of interest’, such as Washington, D.C.'s political goings-on. Some blogs discuss personal experiences.” -Wikipedia

      • They’re an easy way to provide information about what’s happening in your library.

      • Combined with RSS feeds it’s another way for patrons to receive timely information about the library.
      • To tell your library’s story.
      • To allow your patrons to participate in your library’s story.
    • 5 Reasons Not to Blog
      • “ I want to give them a piece of my mind!”
      • “ Oh, the stories I could tell.”
      • “ I think I can find some time at school…”
      • “ Nobody will find out that it’s me.”
      • “ It’s OK, I will keep it private.”
