The 14th “Thing” in our library’s program to do 23 Web 2.0 activities is to explore www.technorati.com. It’s a site where you can search blogs.
I had some fun with it, searching for my own posts. I did not find the Great Falls post I posted most recently, but I did find my goodreads post. It was fun to look for authors I have recently quoted on Sonderquotes and find other people quoting the same authors.
Then I looked up a title of a book I just checked out, Keturah and Lord Death. It came highly recommended on the YALSA-Book Listserv, and I thought it would be interesting to find bloggers reading YA literature.
Sure enough, I really like the sound of one of the first blogs I looked at–“Jane on Books,” (http://janeonbooks.edublogs.org/) with the subtitle–“I Love Kids’ Books.” I’m going to have to start following that blog….
But wait, there’s more!

Wow! I was only getting started! I think I like this method of finding blogs I will enjoy following. Probably too much. It’s not like I need more blogs to follow! But I did want to add to the Blogroll on my site, and I think I’ve hit on a good method.
Oh, by the way, everyone enjoyed the book!
