I don't take things far enough. I haven't pushed the envelope enough. You see me and you think "wow, she is doing a lot." But really, I'm not doing enough.
I have not done enough to provoke you. I am just too middle-of-the-road-nice and likable. I have not done enough to get you angry so that you leap out of your seat and feel compelled to act.
How do I know? What is my measure? It is because I do not hear from you. You are not engaged, you are not commenting. This blog is over 6 years old. At first I thought "oh, it is because librarians are shy about being online." But I see plenty of librarians on Facebook and on Twitter and on listservs talking up a storm. But on the blogs you fall silent.
Many ideas pass through this blog, and you think "ah yes, something new to learn." But, what do you really learn? Do you take any of this and use it?
I have not done my job. I have not gone far enough. I have not provoked you. How can I change this?
