[Another post for the Learning 2.0 program at my library!]
Those of you who came to last week’s Learning 2.0 brownbag session heard me talk a lot about library blogs that I read via Google Reader–and it probably wasn’t the first time you heard me talk about library blogs, either! As Nicole pointed out with the list of feeds she provided at the end of Discovery Exercise #3, there are a lot of non-library sites with feeds. Here are a few of the non-library things I subscribe to:
WWdN: in Exile. The frequently-updated blog of an erstwhile Star Trek actor and fellow geek, Wil Wheaton.
On finding feeds: I typically identify feeds to which I want to subscribe by reading other feeds. Blogs generally link to other blogs and so are a good place to identify other writers whose work I like. If I read a post I like, I will take a gander at the rest of the blog, then add the feed to Google Reader if I like what I see. NB: sometimes, Google Reader forever loads when I try to add a feed. I usually have to quit my browser and try again.
