Abstract or Summary
  • Librarians often lament the difficult nature of keeping up with new online tools and trends in the face of shrinking staff and increasing duties. When the writers of infodoodads began blogging in December 2006 they hoped to pool their collective intelligence and make keeping up a little bit easier. The intended audience was one another, fellow librarians, and anyone else looking for irreverent, easy-to-read reviews of established and emerging web 2.0 tools. The result: a successful group-authored blog, infodoodads, where the writers review and discuss new and existing tools, services, and technology for finding and using information on the internet. Three of the six authors behind infodoodads will share lessons they've learned over the past year by giving a behind-the-scenes look at infodoodads and blog post creation, which will be especially useful for new or soon-to-be bloggers interested in seeing how an established blog operates. This session will also cover a brief history of infodoodads, how the authors find, select, and evaluate new tools, how they manage a collaborative partnership of six writers, how the blog has evolved based on reader preferences, and how they promote and increase readership. In addition the writers will cover valuable information about choosing a blog platform, starting a blog, and helpful tips on effective blog writing. The authors will conclude with a discussion about favorite web 2.0 tools.
