I don't know my focus of my blog yet but tentatively I want it to be about reviewing restaurants/bars or just events that go around the city and the bay area

Ivan Chew

On Thursday Feb. 14th a Librarian from Singapore came all the way to USF to talk about his expeariences with blogging. The self titled "Liblogarian" gave the audience some compelling reasons to start blogging or ways to make a blog better to read

Ivan Chew breaks the "sterotypes" of a librarian with his witty sense of humor and great story telling ability. I can't help but laugh everytime I think about the story about how he explains to his peers on why they should start a blog. "That's why" Ivan explained after he looked up a blog and popped up on the first page of google. For not doing many talks about his work he is a very engageing speaker.

I found that many of Chew's observations about blogging were useful to me starting my own blog like making the blog educational, personal, and entertaining. I liked his idea about blogs being publically engaging because I feel that is one of the most important things blogs can provide. If a blog can help or educate people on a topic it is awasome how people who have never met before can help each other out.

Finally, I thought Ivan's efforts to bring the gap between the younger and older generation was a very interesting product. I never thought about how senior citizens have expearienced so much in their lives but have been unable to record some of their expeariences. It's also cool to think that are blogs and photos online now will be availible for future generations to see.

And like Ivan says "The easiest thing to do is just make a comment"

I appreciated Ivan's "that's why" story, too. As a matter of fact, I don't know if I'll ever think of "spicy chicken broth" the same way again!

I didn't know the "That's Why" story connected with you, Blake (and Kelly). Hmm... I've never had a name for that story but now I'll use the name that you've given it :)
