A small change in the way these blogs operate

Short version of this post

I will occasionally be reblogging content from the other blog I write, at librarymarketingtoolkit.com, on here.

Longer version

This blog, thewikiman, used to have a lot of content about marketing libraries on it. In fact that's partly why I got asked to write a book on the subject in the first place. When the book came out and I launched the website to go with it, I started blogging about marketing stuff on there, and in order not duplicate content, I stopped talking about marketing stuff on here.

However, after thinking about it for a while and talking to people who read one or both of the blogs, I'll now be reblogging relevant content from the Toolkit blog on thewikiman blog. This for a number of reasons:

  • The content I'll be reblogging is relevant to both audiences
  • I blog far less these days anyway so splitting the posts between blogs makes them even scarcer...
  • I still sometimes hear this wikiman blog referred to on Twitter as 'one to follow for marketing' so there's an expectation that it'll have some marketing stuff!
  • This blog gets a larger audience than the Toolkit blog, and generally speaking I want as many people to read my posts as possible .

So I'm going to start by reblogging the last couple of posts from the Toolkit blog, and then carry on as normal from there. It won't be that the blogs are identical - there'll be plenty of stuff on here about library issues generally which doesn't make it onto the Toolkit blog, and the odd obscure marketing post on the Toolkit blog that doesn't make it on to here.

I hope that's okay with everyone! :)
