A New Year’s resolution to blog more is a worthy goal. Whether it be to document your life, adventures, movies, or new socks, blogging remains a way to challenge one’s writing abilities, take part in online social activity, and even learn more about yourself.  This post isn’t admitting to any NYE resolutions. However, you can find regular library postings at [LLOPSCited] (I contribute there as well).

If you don’t have a blog or blog irregularly, I recommend taking a stab at web-based composition.

The blog post is central to the viewer, not surrounded by other tweets or Facebook messages. I wish more of my friends blogged, it would allow me to know them better, rather than through the quick and sometimes impersonal Facebook post.

Blogging can become tedious and in some cases feel like work. To not admit the negatives would be to lie. Twitter is simple and in many cases more appropriate.

Recently, someone searched the term “hitler portrait wallpaper” and was directed to my site. I am lead to believe that this is because of the following post. The photo would make interesting wallpaper but I’m none too sure if this is exactly what he/she wanted.

My hope for this blog is to detail/touch upon select episodes in the library science world around me. As a graduate student much of, if not all, the things I am learning are new and unknown areas (to me). Talking about these developments will hopefully provide incites (to you the reader) into library-space. It seems that non-proactive-library-enthusiasts are unfamiliar with what the library offers and is doing. Maybe this blog can help supply a better image and understanding of libraries.
