For more than two years now, I’ve been the lone blogger on LOC.gov. As most bloggers know, the key to nurturing a growing group of engaged readers is mainly a function of volume: lots of compelling posts, posted with regularity.
Unfortunately for the blog, I wear many hats in my current position, which far too often push blogging down the list of priorities. So I’ve decided to get some help, because there are too many interesting stories around here for one person to try to tell.
I’m pleased to announce that Jennifer Gavin, the senior public affairs specialist in my office, has signed on as a co-blogger. Before coming to the Library in 2007, she held a number of jobs in public relations. She has also had a long career as a journalist, writing for several outlets including the Associated Press.
I’m personally a big fan of her writing, her tone, and her sense of humor, and I hope you will be too.
