Blogging about Blogsource Blogging: Catch the Fever
icontemplate wondered, "Hmm, 'the library weblog about library weblogs.' I wonder...if others try to copy Steven and Greg's neat idea, would someone out there create a Blogsource blogsource? Would its header say 'the library weblog about library weblogs about library weblogs?' And if others copy that idea, would that be called 'the library weblog about library weblogs about library weblogs about library weblogs?' And if others copy that idea... "
I suppose there is room in the biblioblogosphere for a blog about library blogs, but only if it is Comprehensive, not to mention Complete, Impartial, Now Online, Check It Out, Sweeeeet, Kewl, New (oops, momentarily sidetracked by a firestorm of buzzwords and jargon)...

Fortunately, it is none of those things. Well on second thought, it is "Now Online," as it has been since July. And "New," but only in URL. But "Impartial?" Why would we want that?

One of the phenom's I've been observing in librarianship is Faux Journalism. In a sense, it's what I'm practicing. But at least I'm only claiming to deliver my own opinion, even if I am doing it sans editors and fact-checkers. A resource that calls itself "The library weblog about library weblogs" should also make it clear what it is--two guys selecting what they like. It's fun, but it's not "all the blogs that are fit to print." It's an opinion piece gleaned primarily from other opinion pieces.
