It’s been a little less than a month since our last Museum Blog Round Up and there’s a lot to report.
First, the big news is that Musematic has joined the ever growing museum blogosphere. “An intrepid cast of experts from the Museum Computer Network and AAM’s Media & Technology Committee” are posting on a variety of museum related topics.
We’re a bit late in presenting this news, apparently they launched on the date of our last round up, April 13th. Musematic’s first post, Museum Blogging explains, “One of the things we’ll be trying to do at MuseMatic is introduce you to the growing museum blogosphere.” That’s certainly welcomed, as our museum blog community needs to be more interconnected and have better authority.
Along those same lines, it’s nice to see the Museums Blog Webring grow. There are now 16 sites participating. We hope to have another way for museum blogs to increase their visibility, more on that later in the month.
In other blogs…
