GLAM Blog Club April 2020

on

Hello cardiFriends

Yes, we know it’s hard to believe, but March has in fact ended. We didn’t see a lot of blog posts specifically addressing our GLAM Blog Club theme of partnerships, but some cardies found time to blog nonetheless.

Glenn Harper provided a few days of updates on what ‘Corona closure’ looked like in a public library. Niamh Quigley is helping us to #FeelConnected, and Matt Finch ..well, he wrote a lot this month! Danielle Johanesen spoke up, even though her voice shook, and Rebecca Lush continues to supply some great Museum reviews. Ellen gave us some top notch castle content, whilst Miss Koko educated us about IGTV. Fallon Spangler shared her experience of the Compass leadership program, whilst the mysterious Edward Shaddow shared his experience on work placement at ARDC (JEALOUS, MUCH???).

We also had some great COVID-19 related content. Historical Ragbag gave us a great quiz to pass the time, and told us about Hygienic Libraries. Sayraphim Lothian provided insights on online videos and the relationship between Pandemic TV and YouTubers, and the aforementioned Glenn Harper series was All COVID-19 All The Time. Topping and tailing the month were Nikki Anderson with 10 lessons from Brené Brown, and yours truly with an exciting (for me) update on the new software running Aus GLAM Blogs. Incidentally, the new “last month” search feature made this post a lot easier!

For April, you all have “free square” to write about whatever you want. In this week’s newCardigan newsletter we called for volunteers to be guest bloggers right here on newcardigan.org each month. If you’re interested, please email us at hello@newcardigan.org. Hopefully you’ll see a  new voice to inspire you at the beginning of May – in the meantime, we look forward to reading your blog posts written from your home offices!

Don’t forget you can register your blog with Aus GLAM Blogs, and if you use the tag GLAM Blog Club if will use the hashtag #GLAMBlogClub when tweeting (and now tooting) your post to the world.
