Meredith Farkas wrote a piece in LJ about her librarian bloggers survey that had us all discussing the usefulness of blogging surveys…again.
Meredith Farkas – “Oh boy, this is going to be quite a week!”
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.
