My favourite app on my Android smartphone would have to be my Google Reader. I read my blogs and feeds coming in to work, leaving work, waiting for my coffee, and waiting for Miss BG in her dance class. It’s easy to favourite them, to be revisited at a later date. I try and read then daily, otherwise it gets too overwhelming to open my reader to over a thousand posts!
I don’t have a blogroll presently on my site, as I read a few…258 at my last count. Did I ever say I like to read?
Here are the highlights of my blogroll, categorised into the categories which I use to make some sense of my subscriptions…
Ballarat is for keeping up with my local peeps with The Courier, the ABC and The Ballarat Independent
Some of the writers I follow include Mark Dapin and Nick Earls, though he’s only written one post so far. WordPress’s post a day blog also has some interesting ideas for blog posts as well.
I also look at Australian Policy Online for research reports from thinktanks, government authorities and committees.
And the Library blogs- Apart from iLibrarian, Librarian in Black, Librarians Interact, LIS News, INFOdocket, Stephen’s Lighthouse, Tame the Web, World’s Strongest Librarian, there is flagpost from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Library, Law Librarian Blog, Oz e-books and Library Stuff
Finally there is Blogeverydayof June- I read and marvel at you all. One of the best things about this month is getting to read more blogs 🙂
The bulk of my blogroll would be libraries and librarians, but not all librarians blog about libraries, which makes for a varied diet of reading!
