I read her book We’ve Got Blog last fall, and it inspired me to keep on with my blog and give it more solid content. I’m not sure of where I first heard of this weblog thing. Maybe it was a story on NPR. Actually, it probably was. But what got me really interested in it was reading a profile of Jessamyn West in a library journal (possibly even Library Journal). In any case, I finally decided to check it out and started my own on Blogger.
Somewhere not too long after that, I read a review of this book that Rebecca Blood edited, and I thought, “That’s something we need in our Staff Picks/Popular Collection.” So, I ordered it. Over lunch for several days, I read the history of weblogs, and it made me very appreciative of tools like Blogger and Moveable Type. The odd thing is, I never went an read her blog. That is, until today. I’ll be adding it to my RSS feed reader.
