My Learning Curve
I have not been on this blog for quite some time. Why? Summer happened as well as my informal exploration of Web 2.0 tools. I was admittedly pushed by my online Kent State class- YA lit. I thought I really had to tweet when it was just a simulation, so, I ended up on Twitter! I must admit I mostly lurk on my twitter & probably need to be more responsible & not just take from my online community! But reading twitter posts helped me to populate my delicious page and @ the same time I began to do RSS because my hubby is having a "beef" w/our local newspaper. I found RSS to be quite easy & now I have all sorts of blogs I read. Next I have to figure out the easy way to get all these blogs on my blog roll. I mostly read library/ed. reform blogs. One person leads to another for me & I have begun to recognize names I know are important via their passion/content. I am learning so much & the ironic part is now that I am retired, I have no one to teach! But I will share what I know @ OELMA's annual conference & I share bits & pieces w/school teacher friends that I keep in contact w/on a regular basis.
