Blog June

Apparently BlogJune is a thing. I’d not heard of it before – it’s a challenge to

blog every day in June – or as often as you can manage, or comment on someone else’s blog every day

The first part (‘every day’) really would be a challenge, but the qualification (‘or as often as you can’) sounds a lot easier. I’m not sure about commenting on someone else’s blog, as that could entail a great deal of reading before I found something that inspired me to comment sensibly.

One of my colleagues alerted me to this challenge last week. She has bravely risen to the challenge but I’m less brave. I only spotted her tweet about it at the end of the day on 1st June so a strict compliance with the challenge was not really on for me. But, hey, maybe I can rise to the lesser challenge. It might inspire me to post a bit more.

I see that Athene of this parish has written recently about writer’s block – a phenomenon where a normally prolific writer, such as she, has a dry patch. My experience is the inverse – most of the time I write nothing but occasionally I manage to finish a blogpost and get it online.

Maybe more regular posting during BlogJune will get me to the point where I can call my standard taciturnity a writer’s block?


About Frank Norman

I am a librarian in a biomedical research institute. I've been around a few years, long enough to know that exciting new things fall into the same familiar patterns. I'm interested in navigating a path for libraries as we move further from print to electronic resources to open research, and become more embedded in research workflows.
