We’re happy to announce that museumblogs.org is up and running. Over the last couple of months, off and on, we’ve been working on putting the site together. The original idea came from our Survey of Museum Blogs, the follow Up, and numerous conversations and ideas that came out of the Museums and Web conference. (We posted some of those ideas here, the Walker’s New Media Initiatives Blog posted about it here with numerous comments.)
The Welcome post on museumblogs.org explains more, but briefly, the idea behind Museum Blogs create an open space that brings together the museum blogosphere, while making all of our efforts more visible.
Take a look around and please tell us what you think. We’re looking for people who might be interested in participating on the museumblog.org site, by blogging or adding/editing sites in the directory. Just let us know.
