Week 2- Blogging!

So, now begins the fun bit! The second week's activity link has been posted and we expect all of you who haven't made a blog, to jump in feet first and give it a try : ) It's pretty easy when you get the hang of it, and we promise that you will all get better and more confident as time goes by.

Scroll down the righthand side of this page until you find your library service. Click on this link and it will take you to your library's main blog. It might be a good idea to write down these addresses or bookmark them for future use.

Once you've gotten to your library page, click on the heading of each week, or the underlined link, to take you to the activities page. There, you will need to follow the steps to complete the week's 'thing'.

On the side of the pages you will find some other links, a 'Site of the week' link that will have a new interesting website to explore each week, and also your library 'Participants' Blogs' page, where you can find a list of the blogs already created by staff at your library. Here you can click on each one, to see what your colleagues have been up to. There are not many listed as yet, since it is still early in the program, but keep tuned to this area, as it is a good place to be inspired and entertained!

For those of you who have already registered blogs, if you do not see your blog listed on your library 'Participants Blogs' page, you will need to check the URL you sent to us via the registration, as we have not been able to list some of the blogs due to incorrect addresses. Remember, you are registering the blog that YOU have created, not your library blog page, and your address should read:

http://insert name of blog

If your blog is not listed, work your way through Week 2's activity and you should be able to create and register your blog successfully. Please feel free to contact us for help at any time at

Due to popular demand we have decided to activate three week's 'things' in advance so that people can work ahead if they should want. These links should be up and active early next week. Please remember to label each week's post as #5 or #6 we can keep track of your progress. You can also view your progress on the 'Staff tracking Log', the link of which can be found down the side of your library blog.
