It’s the end of the first week of #commentjuly, and so far I’ve managed to keep up and post a comment each day. I probably should have planned the process a bit better, and started noting the posts that I wanted to comment on as they were published. I’m kind of going at it a bit randomly at the moment, but that does keep it exciting! So, here are the posts that I commented on this week, along with a quick explanation of why I commented.
July 1st – Future Library
This is a blog run by La Trobe University Library, and many of the posts discuss issues that are relevant to academic libraries across Australia. I commented on the post about how e-books affect the browsability of library collections.
July 2nd – Where the Rivers Meet the Sea
Moving away from library-related posts, I commented on Sharon’s post about trying to find a balance when it comes to allowing your kids to explore technology, and making sure they get enough exercise.
July 3rd – Librarianville
This comment was in response to a post about developing a Personal Learning Network (PLN). My PLN has certainly expanded since I’ve started using Twitter.
July 4th – Everybody’s Libraries
This blog is maintained by John Mark Ockerbloom who works for the University of Pennsylvania libraries. He’s developed a tool which allows links to be made from Wikipedia articles to library resources.
July 5th – Audacious Fizz
I was looking at the blogs where @JuliadeRuiter had commented as part of her #commentjuly challenge, and came across this post which mentioned hiding a geocache in your library. Seeing that I’ve done this, I felt I had to comment.
I can’t wait to see what next week will bring. I’m going to do my best to finish the challenge, but I’m already thinking that I might not be able to keep up. Somehow #blogjune seemed easier than this.
