Blog Day

August 31 is Blog Day — a day where bloggers are asked to celebrate by recommending five blogs. As the site says:
one long moment on August 31st, bloggers from all over the world will post recommendations of 5 new Blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from their own culture, point of view and attitude. On this day, blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, unknown Blogs, celebrating the discovery of new people and new bloggers.
So here are my five …
1. The “M” Word: Marketing for Libraries: A blog designed to bring the wonderful world of marketing to librarians.
2. Anecdote: Anecdote is a place to better understand learning, change and knowledge sharing. And you can tell by our name that we believe in the power of narratives.
3. Innovation Weblog: The Innovation Weblog is a meta-index of the latest innovation trends, news, technology, resources and viewpoints. It covers topics including innovation research and best practices and strategies, innovation management, business use of Weblogs for ideation and collaboration, and much more.
4. How to Save the World: Dave Pollard’s environmental philosophy, creative works, business papers and essays.
5. Seth’s Blog: Seth Godin’s riffs on marketing, respect, and the ways ideas spread. (and SLA 2008 keynoter)
So, there 600+ blogs in my aggregator now. And you can see I focus on KM, promotion, innovation, learning and being challenged by thoughtful people. The library blogs are a given, eh, and you already know them.
Limiting this post to five is too hard! I also read total junk like Gawker and Perez Hilton – guilty pleasures! And my son’s blog and kids’ Facebook walls.
