My favorite discoveries was actually creating my blog. I also learned alot of computer lingo. I thought Merlin and Wikis was fascinating. I think a liked the online productivity the best.
I think I will be able to help our patrons more with reference questions and teenagers who are researching a school project. I don't think I will personally use all the sites or tools everyday but least I have a knowledge about the different programs and other blogs I can search with.
Some of the programs that were unexpected was that you had to be very careful like online image generator some of the images was a little adult.
But overall I was very surprised I finished everything.
You could have a classroom setting for some of the people who don't know all the computer lingo. I was just fortunate to have fellow librarians to show me how to do the things and the support they gave me. The summer months were a little hectic with the summer reading program and all the activities the library does. I would have liked to have it either in the fall or winter months.
I probably would participate if you have another program but I would go it at my own leisure instead of taking it during my hours at the library.
I really learned a lot but if I'm not doing or using the sites everyday I probably will forget that they are there. So since I have completed the 23 things I will go back through and familiarize myself with it again. I will definitely use Merlin, Library Thing, and Wikis. So I have learned new things and relearned old things. I guess I am proud of myself for finishing this program.

I took a look at this site and wondered what it would do for me. I don't see if I will take advantage of this site. I like to sit on the front porch with a glass of Tea and watch the hummingbirds fly by while I read and also to actually turn the pages with my hands. I don't think our patrons would benefit with this unless they have a home computer to download the books since our patrons are limited to one hour on the computers. I also liked the way it had all their books listed because when I went to put in the authors that I like they weren't listed. Now School students and college students would benefit if there were a limited selection of the same title in the library that they would need to read the book for a report or something.

I went under the subjest of food and there were 951 sites to see. I only did ten pages and wasn't interested in any of them. except the Farmers Almanac http://podcasts.yahoo.com/series?s=a8cec05b17d667fb4d6b97af431dc4fa I probably won't ever use this site since I don't have time to look at all there is to offer.

I didn't have to look for my favorite video since I will be seeing them in concert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p0z1y5mg_E I am going to see if I can get the video up on my blog. The only thing I didn't like is my computer does'nt have sound. I think this is real cool for the YA user. I'm Not sure if I will ever use it for a business maybe only for pleasure seeing.

I really liked this site. I started with the music but could not listen to it because of no sound on my computer. I then went to Judys Book at City guides and reviews and explored what coupons and sales are in my area there weren't to many listed. I then went to Events and found this site extremely useful it had all the events listed in our area like the Leitersburg Peach Festival YUM! http://eventful.com/ this is a really good site. I wish I had more time to explore but maybe later.
