I created a Rollyo for books. It only has two sites so far, but I will add more soon. I can't figure out how to link it or let otehrs know about it. Oh well! It seems to be just like a set of personal favorites that other people can see too.

Library Thing

Library Thing is very cool! I like it a lot and think if people who I knew would sign up too it could be very cool! Here is the link to my library:

So far I just added 5 of my fav titles.

Image Generator

I liked the FD Toys image generator's a lot. I tried the Warholizer. It took a very long time to work, but it finally did. The result is above. Here is the link to the image generator:

RSS feeds part 2

The method of finding feeds I found easiest to use was simply using Bloglines and their reccomendations and their archive of blogs. I just searched and added them. I also like to visit websites/ news, blogs that i like and just add them that way. I think word of mouth would be a good way to find out about other feeds. Technoratie was also interesting.

RSS Feeds


I am to write a bit about the RSS feeds tutorial on Librarian 2.0. It may come in useful for patrons, but personally I have no interest. I don't really read blogs and if I want to read one I'll just go look it up. I guess Blogs are a good way to kill time at least. I prefer to read a blog in the state it was made instead of a boring list of links.

Flickr Anywhere

I have decided to write about Flickr Anywhere. I think this application would be useful for those on Myspace and even Blogger so that all your Flicker photos can be shared. I wonder why someone just couldn't post all their photos on Myspace in the first place? It seems somewhat redundant. I guess it would be useful if you want to show someone who is not interested or are a member of Flickr your photos and they have a Myspace account. PS> Who has time to create programs to use programs? Scary!

Amigurumi Sushi by Christen Haden (Usa)

Here is my flicker picture that I found to blog about. I learned that not all photos can be blogged about. Anyway, I chose sushi because I am hungry and will be going out to sushi Sat night. Also, once I went to Portland and saw 'knitted' sushi and this reminded me of the trip. Look at the cute wasabi and ginger ;)

7 and a half habits

Out of all the habits discussed in the tutorial I would have to say that I am good at creating my own learning toolbox. I think that finding the things (books, webpages, equipment, and people) I will need to complete my learning task is the easiest and most fun part of the learning process. This is why I like being a librarian! I don't actually like the learning part, I like the scavanging part ;) It's my form of procrastination. The step I have trouble with is viewing problems as challenges. Personally, I don't care for problems and roadblocks and sometimes need to be reminded that challenges can be a good thing!


I have never wanted to create a blog so will keep this short. We'll see if I ever have anything of interest to say, or if I can get into reading other people's random thoughts ;)
