My good friend Olivia started a blog called Beyond the Shelves that she’s using to document her graduate library work at Simmons College. I always like it when my friends start blogging after making fun of me for doing it (okay, Liv never made fun of me, but I’m sensitive). I’m also a fan of the process-blog, or what I will be calling the prblog (problog? pblog?) in which people work through ideas without worrying about consistency or, in my case, coherency. Like traditional journals, prblogs offer a way of externalizing our thoughts, of making them clearer, but with the added plus (or minus) of having an audience to bounce your ideas off of. If they aren’t assholes, of course.
