I officially signed up to participate in "23 Things". I want to be an Awesome 2.0 Librarian so I am learning everything I need to know about the web 2.0 world. Thing 1 was to create a blog. Thing 2 was to explore other blogs and post a comment on them. I did that a few days ago. I posted a comment at BookMates, a project of two Seattle-based readers, because it seemed similar to this blog in that it was about selecting and recommending books. I also commented on 23 Things: The Way Forward by an Irish blogger interested in professional development.
Today I explored one more blog and the blogger was based in London and in fact used to be in New York. This blogger has educated me a little about librarianship in the UK. Chartership is a professional qualification earned by practicing librarians in the UK. Reflective writing is a requirement of Chartership and blogging for this Librarian is one approach to meet that requirement.
I look forward to continuing with Thing 3 and of course I am going to finish reading my book, The Eye of the Crow.
