Well chances are that I won't get that feeling, but I have started to do a little following myself and I liked it! As Thing 2 of the CDP 23 Things I have prowled the web and tracked down a few of my fellow 23ers to subscribe to. Admittedly I am unsure as to when I will be able to dedicate the time to more virtual librarian stalking, this session came about by a (?)happy coincidence of a couple of sick-days off from work. Which is one of the reasons why I selected my first blog, Aude Sapere. I am always in awe when I find librarians who seem to be so involved with the profession, Michael being one such body. Where do they get the time? Also what attracted me to this blog was the issue of professional isolation which I can somewhat relate to, being in a small team, in a small institution, within a small branch of librarianship ; however, not even nearly as isolated as Michael, so henceforth I shall man-up.
Tom Roper is another of these staggering individuals who live and breath the profession. Although, as he states in his blog (he does, I'm not being rude), in career terms he is no spring chicken, he is more committed to professional development than many new graduates I know. Speaking of which, the third blog I selected, World's Deadliest Librarian, is contrasting to Tom in that she is just starting library school, but comparably, she has a wonderful attitude towards librarianship and seems to be going into it for the right reasons.
Being a brand-spanking new blogger I decided to follow an old hand in the shape of Library Wanderer, to see how it should be done. The fourth was a blog from which I feel I have already learnt something. I have been struggling with keeping on top of, and consolidating, my virtual professional reading. Odd Librarian Out has suggested that commenting on various posts would mean we then have an active interest and help our reading to be consistent (I hasten to add that this is personal interpretation of the post!). I'm willing to try anything that might help, so in the future should you come across any comment of an inconsequential nature after something really interesting, that is probably me.
And last but not least I am following The Trumpet Major, because he has managed to start following himself. Ha!
Umm, saying that I have just utterly failed to insert an image into this post, so I think that is quite enough from me for now...
