Week #8

Week #8 is finally finished.  I created yet another new account ...this time it is "Remember the Milk"...if only I could remember all the passwords we have created.   One of my next tasks is going to be creating a document with all the new websites I have visited and the passwords that were used.   Here is the screenshot of my "Remember the Milk"

Week #7 - Social Cataloguing

Wow, here we are week #7 and another password.  I think that eventually I am going to go back to all the new accounts I set up and make the logins and passwords all the same so I remember them instead of having a page with them all written down.  

I signed up for a LibraryThing account:  and so far I have listed about 5 books that I really liked.   I can see the benefit for those people who read alot.   I would love to be able to make an account up for one of my gentlemen patrons who reads mostly westerns and who I have to order books in for.    Unfortunately he has read over 200 books and I am not willing to pay the fee for him so I guess I will just have to keep his list in a document on my computer.  

I am now going to work on week #8 and when I have time I will go back to LibraryThing and play around some more.

Week 6 - Wiki

I added to the SOLS Learning 2.0 Wiki page.   The website I added was:   This Blog promotes the first Saturday in February as a day to take your child to the library.  There were many different ideas that could be used to get more people to come and utilize the library.   My library promoted TumbleBooks and TumbleReadables on the BIG SCREEN. 

Week #5

I am really hoping that this link to my first ever uploaded picture to Flickr works :

Next I am going to try signing up for a YouTube account to see what I kind find there.

Web 2.0. Week #3

Week # 3 is now complete .   I signed up for a twitter account and my twitter name is LibraryPeggy.  I know not very original but that is what I came up with.   I signed up for RSS feed from SOLS and browse around for some more intersting ones shortly.   This all looks like it could be fun but time consuming and addictive.  Maybe this is something to do while watching tv.
