I’m familiar with blogging to an extent (LiveJournal was a big part of growing up, for me.), but I’ve never delved past the basics: putting text in this box, and a picture in the little profile window. I know that there are tools, and I want to learn how to use them. 

My interest is in young adult library services and I know that librarians have to meet their patrons where they are. Let’s face it: teens are on the Internet. Blogging for the library can be a good way to book-talk to teens, or to organize book clubs, to publicize events, or even to get recommendations for the collection.

So, I guess my goal is to learn all I can about how to interact better with blogging services. Writing I can do, but text on its own won’t bring teens to the library blog; I’d like to have some tricks up my sleeve.
