Finally Finished Weeks 7 & 8

Weeks 7 and 8 overwhelmed me with all of the stuff presented. I did not have a lot of time to play so I just did not get to it. I had some spare time today so I investigated all that was presented. Most of it was interesting but not particularly useful to me. I finally used Meebo to send a message and put a clock on my Blog. I think Slideshare might be something I will use and I found some interesting websites in the Web 2.0 Award Winners. I did not do anything that required downloading software but will be attending the second life conference next week. All in all it was interesting and really raised my awareness of how much is available to us free.

Publishing from Google Docs did not work

I was trying to finish my blue 2.0 for the week and I was not able to publish my entry in Google Docs to my blog. I followed the direction and it said it had posted but it is not here. I am going to try again to see what happens. Hopefully I will be able to do this before I leave today.

Finished Social Bookmarking Exercise

I just finished doing the session on and found that a colleague from Italy had tagged one of the websites I tagged. I looked at his tags and found a great one for finding hotels around the world so I tagged that one as well. I think I am seeing the value of this now that I have gotten into it. My account is at Armelia Delia was my grandma Yelle so I used her since my name and its variations were already taken.

Social Book Marking Set Up

I just set up my social book marking account and my first tagging was the reference blog. I am not sure how I am going to use this but I certainly am game. I have been using the newsreader and find it easier to keep up.

Wiki Became Stiki

I dabbled in Wiki's this morning only to find they can be sticky. I obviously have some work to do. I am setting up a wiki to use for the science library project so it is a closed wiki. I did get the wiki set up but it kept telling me my UKY address was being rejected so I used a personal email address. That went through with flying colors. I then edited my first page and have a typo in the title. I can edit everything but the title. I was trying to figure out the table of contents but did not get too far. I need to do a bit more work in that. The bottom line is the wiki is created and there is one posting. Unfortunately, I have a typo in the title and I can't find the posting. I will just have to deal with it when I have a bit more time. I do intend to follow up on this as I can see how it will be a great help for this project. The URL for the wiki is: Please ignore the typo.

I just finished doing the RSS part of this week's Blue 2.0. It was a bit frustrating as the instructions did not work they way they should have. I was able to figure it out though and I am now connected to Blue 2.0, Library News, the YoungRef Blog, and several professional blogs. Hopefully I will be more in the loop.

Picture of St. Jerome added

Kerri suggested that I add a picture of St. Jerome so I did! No one knows what he really looked like and some of the paintings show him practically nude in the wilderness! At least this one has some dignity.
