The journey that began some 3-4 months ago has reached the destination. ALLLL done in the 23 things techno game! It was a bit tough to hang in there and I did for sure learn much along the way.
Highlights were .. the thrill of blogging and seeing your creation come to life online and grow. Flickr fun, library thing, Web 2.0 award winners, & a tiptoe in the podcast world.
Still foggy and most likely ever will be are .....mashups, tagging, what the thrill of youtube is, and finding out that self taught technology is a rough road to travel at times.
I am glad that I completed this and I am happier still it is DONE!!!

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff … and It’s All Small Stuff is a book that shows you how to keep from letting the little things in life drive you crazy. In thoughtful and insightful language, author Richard Carlson reveals ways to calm down in the midst of your incredibly hurried, stress-filled life. You can learn to put things in perspective by making the small daily changes he suggests, including advice such as “Think of your problems as potential teachers”; “Remember that when you die, your ‘in’ box won’t be empty”; and “Do one thing at a time.” You should try to live in the present moment, let others have the glory at times, and lower your tolerance to stress. You can write down your most stubborn positions and see if you can soften them, learn to trust your intuitions, and live each day as if it might be your last. With gentle, supportive suggestions, Dr. Carlson reveals ways to make your actions more peaceful and caring, with the added benefit of making your life more calm and stress-free.
One more blog to go..One more blog to go.. Hi HO the Dairy-- O.. One more blog to go!!!
I did give a look over at http://podcasts.yahoo.com/start Yahoo has a nice tutorial for an overview of podcasts. I then listened to part of one on weight loss and health.. then tried a comedy one which would not download for me to listen. Searched for librarians and came up with book reviews by Nancy Pearl. 85 episodes. Nancy Pearl is a librarian with a love of books so strong it has been officially classified as lust. No matter the mood, moment or reason, she can recommend the perfect literary companion.
rss feed link for the Nancy is : http://kuow.org/rss.php?program=nancy
well this was one technology I had heard of but had not explored before. Can't say I am impressed with the content I viewed. A video of northern lights, a pig farting song, the destruction of thousands of dominoes that were set in a pretty pattern. I am sure it can be the source of many amusing moments in life but also cluttered with lots of just stupid stuff from the looks of it. Maybe a generation kinda thing but since i haved lived so far 53 yrs without a need for youtube in my life.. I think I can live a few decades more.
doing the 20 out of 23 things dance..YIPEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ohh sorry.. I do mean # 19 on the will this ever end!! Library 23 things training!
must say i did enjoy the little look see at the award winning library 2.0 sites. Travel is something I am always interested in and noted that kayak.com is one that they have listed as well hotelscombined for a good overall hotel search engine.
Next books looked at biblio and see how it works to consolidate the information from independent booksellers and good source for out of print/rare books.
Yelp city guide was a new place for me to see reviews of local restaurants, shopping, nightlife etc. similar to digital city by aol.
My favorite of all is www.oodle.com where it pulls in local and city classified ads in one search engine to give u that one hit wonder access.. and links you to the actual add if needed.
sooo happy happy finished 19..and now only 3 more blogs to go!! well maybe a final epilogue one cuz I read the email we need to make sure we have covered EVERY thing in the 23 in our blog..
