Quite awhile back I got hooked on a blog from a library and darn it, right now I can’t recall the name, but I loved it. It had great tidbits of information on the literary world and I looked forward to checking it out every day or so. That was my first intro to a blog and before long I was checking quite a few- for a booklover and library lurker, there is a bonanza of jibber-jabber and info sharing to be had. Luckily, I somehow stumbled onto Bloglines and got it set up. I have been using it for over a year now and it’s terrific. Whether I check in daily or miss a few days, all the posts are saved up until I get to them- but the best part is the fact that they are all in one place. At a glance I can see who has posted and with a quick click I can add or delete blogs.
I checked out Google Reader and I think I will just stay put with Bloglines for now. I wasn’t familiar with Netvibes so I went to that site and it is a personalized homepage. I have been using igoogle for my homepage, it’s fun to add widgets or personalize and you can have that nifty picture at the top- seems that is what Netvibes is. Hmmmmm, now that I think a bit, Netvibes you can also add your blogs, but does it manage the feeds? Ima gonna haveta check that out!
I’d like to send out this question to everyone in 2.0 land: Seems like when you get a group like this together you have some go-getters in the crowd- probably great on the job, too! So, tell one or two great ideas, programs, events, tips- whatever, that really stood out for you in the past year, a “tell and share” of sorts! Soon we’ll have an arsenal of info to tuck into our pockets for that just right time!
