16-23 are Done

I signed up for a Webcast from Library Journal called "Push, Pull, Delight: My Library, My Collection, My Expert. I've used You Tube type trainings before and podcasts with RSS feeds. OLA was using Twitter at its annual conference in Midwest City last Mon. April 20-Wed. April 22. I must admit when I started 23 Things; I was worried about taking time away from work to do technology training. I plan to use podcasts more and produce some for fun.

Download a book from TCCL

I just downloaded "Medical Myths that Can Kill You! Such a happy subject!

You Tube

I signed up for You Tube, but once again couldn't figure out the directions for embedding a video. I had found the Hawaiian guy who plays "While my guitar gently weeps" on a Ukulele. Someone had told me about his amazing playing. I want a ukulele now!


I've actually subscribed to Podcasts from ALSC, the children's division of ALA, so I'm familar with them; I've used them for continuing education.

Web 2.0 Award Winners

I chose the music awards and looked at, Pandora & MOG. The feature that I like best about was that you can upload your original music & get royalties each time your song is played. Pretty cool! Pandora creates a radio station just for you based on the songs/genres that you like. MOG is like a social network of music sharing, with info about music news, and a list of the top 100 musicians. Check them out for fun!

Am I done with 7-18??????

I hope that I'm done because I'd like to move on to 23!!!!


I tried to use a template to create my Road to Reading Newsletter, but I could not get the graphic that Judy gave me into the page. I may need to spend more time on this project. I'd like to get a newsletter out in May to the day cares about the summer reading program.
