But that’s not her!
That’s just the light
It’s only an image of her
It’s just a trick of the light
The Triffids – Trick of the light
This is my first attempt at blogging and I realize I still have a lot to learn. I jumped in at the start of June without thinking too much about the consequences or the skills that I would require. Once I got started, I realized that I needed to consider developing is my blogging voice and establishing suitable topics for posting on a blog that would be shared with a professional network. I also remembered a post from earlier this year by the prolific Melbourne blogger Pip Lincolne that got me thinking about the importance of developing a consistent and positive tone, if you want people to return to your blog.
I did know from the beginning though, that my main aim for #blogjune would be to post daily and that the content would be of secondary importance, but I am still feeling a little uncertain about who I am meant to be writing for (audience – librarians?) and what I should be writing about (anything I can thing of in June..). A few participants have reflected and mentioned that they would prefer not to post daily, if this meant they were diluting the professional content of their blogs. Others such as @newgradlib have chosen to post from two blogs: professional and personal.
I feel much more confident than I did at the start of the month about blogging, so this has been a useful exercise. I’m sure that if I keep blogging I will eventually find my professional voice.
