I'd like to respond.
1) "Judging by the few comments she receives, it appears that her blog is not very successful."
Wait, so the best measure of a 'successful' blog is by counting the number of comments? I guess I really should quit now then. I've been measuring success differently: I have really enjoyed maintaining a log of what I've been working on and thinking about in libraryland over the years. When I look back I can see where my thinking has developed and where I've improved. Also, I'm really glad to have a professional 'face' outside of my job where I can work through ideas and thinking. Anyone is welcome to comment, but worrying about how many people are leaving comments has certainly never been high on my priority list for this.
2) "I browsed through a few of her writings, and it seems that she is anti-Facebook, anti-Twitter, and anti-social software in general"
Hold up, I am not anti- any of those things! I am the administrator of our library's Facebook and Twitter accounts! Please Mr. Schatkun, do more than 'browse' next time! And give me a little credit for being a bit skeptical about social technologies, unlike many of my young peers.
3) "I like to read about professional topics, not personal diaries (as in the Librarian’s Commute)."
Wait, does this blog come across as a personal diary? Holy moley, I thought I was being really good about Avoiding Personal Topics, & writing about what I run into in higher education and librarianship. I do try and keep the tone light and friendly, but I really don't think this blog is any more personal than other well-respected library blogs, such as Jenica Rogers Urbank's delightful "Attempting Elegance," K.G. Schneider's "Free Range Librarian" and Meredith's own "Information Wants to be Free"
I really don't care whether Mr. Schatkun wants to read my blog or not, but I wish his criticism was accurate! (And yes, a part of me is thinking 'maybe the whole point of what he wrote was to get a reaction and encourage social media participation.' If so I blow a big raspberry to you, sir.)
Next week: Mission statement for the Librarian's Commute, for the next time there's confusion.
* Schatkun's post is marked as being from 2/10/10 -- would have been nice to know about it a little sooner, ahem Google.
