To Quote Bowie: "Ch-ch-changes!"

Posted By Rebecca McCorkindale, Friday, December 18, 2015

If you haven't visited the SCYP Blog in awhile, then this may be a rather shocking development. The blog has gone through a radical change because it's radically changing its purpose.

At the heart of this blog will be a place to build a Personal Learning Network (PLN). Youth service librarians and media specialists are awesome on their own, but combine our powers? Look out! The way I hope that we do this is by creating a collective librarian blog. I don't know that I've ever seen a collective blog quite like this before, so I'm basically making this up as I go along (I bet y'all know how that goes). But, in my mind it's a blog that's created by its readers - essentially crowdsourcing.

To break it down further: I hope that this blog will become a place for Nebraska SCYP members to share ideas, resources, and inspirations - all without the added stress of maintaining a personal blog. I love blogging, but I know firsthand how demanding on time it can be. Why not shoot a simple blog post to someone (me and maybe some other editors), and they can do the posting and maybe minor editing? I want this to be super-informal (i.e. no pressure on grammar or spelling), so please don't let that hold you back.

Let's try this!

Later this week I'll be sharing a few posts based on some of my previous personal blog posts to give you an idea of what I hope to create here. In my wildest dreams, after a year or so, this will become an invaluable resource for every SCYP member when it comes to programming and advocacy. I can't do this alone (seriously, it'd be pretty sad). Please help spread the word!

Do you write a blog that is in line with this site's goals? Please let me know! I'd love to create a SCYP Member Blogroll. Reach out either via email or twitter (which I've included at the end of this post), and I will get back with you ASAP.

Thank you so much for even considering joining me in this (potentially mind-blowing) project! Check back often to see if this little glimmer of a dream either lights up like the sun, or flickers out (I'm hoping for the former).
