Meredith Farkas wrote a piece in LJ about her librarian bloggers survey that had us all discussing the usefulness of blogging surveys…again.
Farkas – “What I love most about the library blogosphere is that weâ€™re not judged by our CVs, but by the content of our writing.”
Meredith is my favorite librar* blogger of all time. Hands down. Luv ya!
Oh Meredith, how I love your blog posts – “[B]y dismissing critics or simplifying their arguments, we only make our own arguments less convincing.”
From her survey results, she says: “Want to be happy? Well, you may want to become a school librarian, work in a law library or work for a consortium or library system, because those three got the highest scores for job satisfaction. Corporate and public librarians had the lowest levels of job satisfaction.”
Yay for Law Librarian Bloggers.
Meredith Farkas – “After reading Jenniferâ€™s post, I immediately drafted an e-mail to the Dean of the FSU College of Information, Larry Dennis. I got an e-mail from him that he had forwarded my e-mail on to a colleague, so weâ€™ll see what happens. Maybe theyâ€™ll find the idea of me teaching a class laughable.”
Meredith, as always, is my hero. I take risks as often as I can. It’s scary, fun, exacerbating, and worth every second put into it.
