#14 Getting Not-So-Technical with Technorati

Wow. There's a lot going on Technorati. It's a bit overwhelming at first, but I jumped on the merry-go-round and took a few spins. I did manage to claim my blog (I think) and add a Technorati gadget to my blog. Now I'm going to try to tag this post. Cross your fingers!

# 13 Tagging, Folksonomies & Social Bookmarking in

Yee-haw! I have explored delicious and even added the network badge to my blog! I am bad!

I have a tendency to become engrossed in the exploring part of the exercise, but then when time comes to post about it here, I don't really know what to say. I think having a way to access my bookmarks from any computer is a neat concept, certainly. I liked clicking to see who else has bookmarked the same sites I've bookmarked, then seeing what else they've bookmarked. I really like typing the word "bookmark". Fun stuff, once again.

# 12 Add a Jaxcat Gadget

I did it! First try!

Now, for something totally random...

#11 A Thing about Library Thing

I have a Shelfari account, which is similar to this. I found this site to be more fun, though. I don't know why, really. Maybe I just like the way it looks more than Shelfari.

As you can see, I've added a few more than the requisite 5 the lesson called for.

This is my generator result for #10... I had wayyyyy too much fun exploring these! That's why I'm so behind! Plus, we were out of town for a week... :-)

Exercise #9

Yes, I'm totally addicted to this now. In the same way I can use Facebook to entertain and inform my friends and family in one convenient place, Bloglines will be a gathering place for all my varied interests now. I found it easiest to go directly to my favorite sites and add them via the "Sub with Bloglines" tool, but I have thoroughly explored all the options posted on the exercise. (By the way, does Feedster even exist anymore? All signs point to: no.)

Exercise #8

I like it! I like it a lot! This was an exercise that took a while for me, as this related to nothing I had ever done on the internet, other than seeing that RSS icon and thinking, "gee, I wonder what that is?" Now I know, and I'm pretty excited! Hopefully, everyone sticks with it. I can definitely see this as being something I will be using in the future, as I'm constantly perusing my favorite websites, in search of the latest news. Brilliant!
