It’s Feedback Time!
It’s a New Year and time to re-evaluate this blog project. We now have 144 followers–more than half from North Carolina and many others with an interest in collections care across the country and even beyond! In addition, several dozen viewers check out our posts via our Facebook page’s automatic feed. We’re thrilled with these numbers, and the positive feedback we’ve received makes the work we put into research, writing, and coaxing guest posters worthwhile.
The blog also fulfills an important role as both a complement and supplement to our workshops. Sometimes we’ve reported on workshops in posts, affording those who are unable to attend the chance to benefit from our instructors’ knowledge. In other posts, we’ve been able to explain preservation materials and methods, and then we can provide links to relevant posts as one component of the workshop resources we provide.
We don’t want to diminish that synergy between posts and workshops, and we want this site to continue to be a resource for preservation tips and for our NC cultural heritage collections network. While we always value your feedback, we’re now seeking your opinion on the issue of posting frequency, specifically.
We will continue to supply a forum for North Carolina collections stories and we will continue to discuss collections care issues, but perhaps it is time for us to insert more pauses into our “collections conversations.” What do you think?
