Which bloggers do I read?

People are aways asking how to keep up with new technology or library trends. I subscribe to a few key periodicals and newsletters. I find blogs the best though. You just let the postings wash over you and remain open to patterns and repeats. I suppose there’s a bit of the wisdom of crowds in this method. At the CODI Directors Day last Sunday, I promised the group that I would blog my list of blogs that I read in my aggregator (Bloglines). So here’s the list I promised at CODI. No secrets here – I am truly a bigtime library geek. Although it looks like a lot, it never takes more than 20-25 minutes a day (usually just before falling asleep) to scan and review. If you see any great blogs missing, tell me and the rest of us in the comments.

  1. I write a mix of analytical and informational posts at Science Library Pad

  2. Great, thanks for sharing Stephen! You might also consider exporting your list of feeds as an OPML file and posting it, which would allow folks to suck up the whole list into the aggregator of their choice…

  3. Steve, thanks for posting. You might want to put a link to your Bloglines (public) blogroll in with the stuff on the right side of your blog so we can check your list from time to time. Then you can say, “hey want to know what I read? go to my blog and click on this link!”
    BTW I would add Tom Peter’s blog.

  4. Thanks Stephen … you should know that I clicked the link above to subscribe … and then this morning when I opened up bloglines I was logged in as you … fluke or bug? I don’t know, but I wanted you to know.
