These are the People in Your Neighborhood…

Are blogs dying, being supplanted by all sorts of other Web 2.0 gizmos like FriendFeed and Twitter?  Maybe.  It takes a lot more time and energy to write and read a substantive blog post.  But one way to stave off blog death is to get more readers and have more of a conversation on your blog.

My colleague at UK, Stacey Greenwell, has created the Kentucky Blogs wiki. This will (hopefully) list all of the library and information professional blogs in Kentucky.  I think it’s a great way for bloggers to find each other and blog readers to find us.  And since it’s a wiki, you can add yourself (or a blog you know of) instead of waiting for someone else to do it.

You should totally steal this idea for your state, or if you live in a larger metropolitan area, do a city library/information bloggers wiki.
