Week #9 - Thing #23

This completes the 23 things for me. I had a lot of fun with these exercises. I have learned so much from this program and I plan on utilizing what I have learned to my benefit. If offered another discovery program like this one, yes I would choose to participate. One of my favorite things was youtube I thought that was fun to watch some pretty old TV clips. I also enjoyed the online image generator, flickr and librarything.

Week #9 - Thing #22

I enjoyed the Project Gutenburg website! Reading and listening to audiobooks was rather enjoyable. I of course didn't get to finish reading the story yet. I explored Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol, both are time consuming books. I will go back to this website and listen to some more audiobooks sometime soon. I explored Overdrive just a bit and decided that I didn't want to download the program at this time.

Week #9 - Thing #21

I searched Podcasts and discovered something new. I went looking for library podcasts and found a site on that was great for kids. A podcast that suggests reading material for kids. I tried to add it to my blog but for some reason I can't add anything to my layout. I had no trouble adding my youtube yesterday. I am not sure what the problem is. Hopefully, it will correct itself later.

Week #9 - Thing #20

Explored YouTube a site that allows users to view, share and upload videos. I liked this site very much. I explored old TV shows such as Gilligan's Island and old commercials. I also views new movies that are out or coming out such as the new Harry Potter movie that is coming to the theaters this week. I added the trailer for this one to my blog (see below). There are so many different kinds of videos to watch. A person could spend hours on this site. This is the first time that I had experienced this site and I will be enjoying it more in the future.

Week#8 - Thing #19

I had fun exploring the awards list. I enjoyed the games. I went to and played around a bit. I like puzzles so I went there. The memory game was fun. I also explored other sites and I probably will continue to explore the other sites on the awards list. I tried to search for people but you have to pay for some of the more advanced search sites. I also searched the books sites, and reference sites.

Week #8 - Thing #18

Online Productivity

Today I checked out an online word processor at! I found it easy to use and a great tool to have. I find that it would be very useful to someone who does not have a program of their own. I usually use Microsoft Office which I am used to so I probably won't use this particular program. I would love to find out if there are free programs online for graphic design, such as card making, scrapbooking, label making, etc.

Week #7 - Thing #17

I added my entry to the Learning 2.0 SandBox wiki.
