At long last, my article on the Law Library Blogosphere has finally seen the light of day. A big thanks to Sabrina Pacifici for publishing it in LLRX. The article is based on a survey I did last fall of law library bloggers and those developing blogs.
Although the legal and library literature is filled with information about the theoretical pros and cons of blog publishing, little has been written about actual blogging experiences. Who is blogging? What are they blogging about? Who reads blogs? What technologies are being used? Have blogs been successful? What lessons can be shared? These are the questions explored in this article. Through this study, potential bloggers will better evaluate whether this technology is right for them and veterans will gain insight into their own blogging experience in comparison to their peers?
