Thing 4
A coworker helped me to get a beautiful picture of Venice onto my blog. I don't think I could do it again by myself. I feel that I understand the basic idea of what Flickr is, but don't understand how to use it yet, even though I read what I could. I may have to read it again more slowly. I am not good at patiently reading and understanding new things unfortunately. Are the instructions real clear, though? How much time is normal to spend trying to understand these things?
I'm feeling incompetent...

The 3rd thing

I have never been a reader of blogs, so I did not think I would be interested in getting all kinds of updates on things that I don't really need to know. I did, however, sign up for several of the blogs and have read some of the items. It amazes me how much time people spend writing their thoughts on their computers. I do not expect to become one of them. Having said that, much of the info is very interesting, from sweet stories about cats to the latest political baloney.

I still feel uncertain that I have done things correctly, as my blog is still not listed with the others. But here it is, so I hope I am actually registered. Maybe the delay is from the time when I was thought to be a spam blogger. I'll check to see if I'm listed by Monday; I don't want to remain invisible.

Thing two

Steven Abram is an inspiring man. He makes one feel excited about the possibilities of Library 2.0. Though most his references were unfamiliar to me, he makes it seem like it will be a fascinating experience. My initial feeling of being overwhelmed has diminished somewhat. The articles also presented different elements that I have no experience with. I've heard that Flickr is a lot of fun to use. I look forward to that, for one thing.

Thing One

Setting up the blog and making an avatar has made me feel like a sad panda.
I required help from 3 different people, and still don't know exactly what I did.
I had no idea how to return to my blog once I had left it. It can only get better.
