The spanking new Cites & Insights tells you everything you could possibly want to know about the Liblog Landscape 2007-2008; trends in posting frequency, length of posts, number of comments, conversational intensity (# of comments per post), age, authorship, patterns of change, content, and many other metrics. In short, The Liblog Landscape 2007-2008: A Lateral Look is by far the most complete review of changes in blogging behavior within the library field, and quite possibly in any field. It sounds dry, but makes for fascinating reading. And of course, mention of loads and loads of interesting library related blogs, and one conspicuous, I should say glaring, omission...which I assume is there merely to pique readers' interest.
