So now that we have a chapter blog, how do we get readers? Karen, our intrepid Communications Committee Chair, asked this question yesterday during our committee meeting via conference call. Well, says your intrepid blog editor, I will be posting this week to ConnectMidwest about this very subject! Because why blog if no one reads!
I snagged two useful posts about this in my feed reader last month:
- Our favorite goth Librarian In Black posted Where to list your library’s blog online. Got my work cut out for me!
- Over at Problogger, Skellie lists 7 Types of Blog Posts Which Always Seem to Get Links and Traffic with lots of great tips for getting noticed. I suppose Skellie’s post itself falls under category 2 “Lists of tips.”
One tactic that your intrepid blog editor used to increase the visibility of Conference Call 2007 was to shamelessly invite some popular libraryworld bloggers to check out the blog and mention it in their blogs. As I mentioned before, I particularly enjoyed the crossover posts with T. Scott and our MLA Pres.
