It's been awhile!

I haven't written in my blog in awhile. Not a great year 2008 -hopefully 2009 with be better. Unfortunately, my beloved Maggie J passed away on October 23, 2008. We miss her so much and was such a great member of our family. Some health issues hit our family but all ok now. Looking forward to a better 2009. Back on the diet trail AGAIN!!!.

Now have a new puppy - a "shihpoo".. Half shitzu and have poodle. Cutie pie..
We named our new puppy Coco..

#23 Wrapping Up

Wow.. I have to say I overall did enjoy the Web 2.0 Challenge. I have learned so many things about technology and obtaining information.

I would have to say my favorite part was registering with Bloglines. I have added many RSS feeds since I registered with Bloglines. I like being able to go to one location and find out news that interests me.

The least favorite of this challenge was the last one, Listen NJ. I don't think I will be tuning into that area of technology.

I have shared my blog with my family. Sometimes, I think I may know more then my daughters regarding the "techi" world!

The library should by all means continue to keep current with the constant changes in technology, but there still is nothing like personal customer service with our patrons. I believe that is what makes Ocean County Library so special by offering up to date information but in a personal and friendly manner.

#22 ListenNJ

Downloaded Media Console to download audio books from Listen NJ. Needed my library barcode and it was quick and easy. I don't know how much I would use this because I like having a book in my hands.

#21 Podcast

I checked this out. It really didn't grab me. Out of all the challenges, I liked this the least. I don't know why, but every topic I clicked on -nothing interested me. I tried travel, cooking, books, and music. Here is one about cooking.

I enjoyed the other challenges much better!

#20 YouTube

I checked out YouTube, which is one of the challenges that I had previously been on. I find it fun to watch at times. I like Stevie Nicks so I searched her and found this video. I enjoy walking to this song.Check it out

#19 - Web 2.0 Awards

I will certainly be checking out the Web 2.0 Awards at home. I am totally enjoying my own Bloglines. I have subcribed to more blogs since I started this Web 2.0 challenge. I now find out all the latest tasty wines that are under $20! looks like a blog I would be interested in. It shows all good buys in the area. is another site that I have checked out.

So much information out there! I will be checking it out.

#18 -Web Apps - Google Docs

Checked out google docs/added my name to the library document. Another great technology learning tool! It would be great for our branch to use this type of document if we were working on something together at the branch. So much to offer.. so much to learn!
