I'm so happy to start doing morethingsonastick.
I updated the background. Needed to be freshened up.
Found the background at Pyzam. What a great site. There's a lot of backgrounds to look at which makes it hard to choose. Kind of like trying to narrow down your choice of wall paper for your house.
I better start reading the wiki and see what I need to do.

Thing 23

I'm doing the happy dance, I finished, I finished.
What a great experience.
Thanks to all of you that put this program together. Job well done.
I learned so many things I don't know where to even start. I'm glad to have started a blog. I would of never have done that on my own.
I had only scratched the surface of the web and now that I have gone deeper I'm excited about exploring the many tools and uses.
My take away will be my blog that I created for our library. I hope it connects with the kids and evolves. Into what I'm not sure of yet. Time will tell.
I'm glad to have participated in 23 Things. If you offer the program again, I'd join.
When I started this program I was trying to decide if I should go back to school and pursue a degree in Media Technology. I love books and now I have learned a little about how libraries are using Web 2.0 tools and combining the two. My decision has become yes.
Thank you!

Thing 22

I made it this far. I have learned so much I can hardly believe it.
I have always found the web interesting and liked surfing through. Now to have so many tools.
I don't think keeping up will be difficult and finding the time. The problem will be stopping. I can get so lost in cyber space. I will have to set limits.
The tools I have learned will be a great help with my other blog Dewey Stacks. I have many ideas and it's a constant work in progress. My hope is in a year that it will have evolved into something wonderful for our library.
This site will be discontinued when this program is done. I used this site as my place to document my 23 Things journey. My time and efforts will be put into Dewey Stacks blog.
Thanks for the taking me deeper into the web. It's been a fun journey.

Thing 21

I went through the sites listed in the Things and found that I liked Ning. It didn't seem so overwhelming. Smaller community. I signed up on 23 Things on a Stick and put my badge at the bottom of this page. I will have to go back and make my homepage a little more homey. It's cookie cutter right now. I did upload a picture too.
I'll have to go through the groups and find out if there is any other groups that would be interesting to join. Only thing is keeping up with it. Have to make it a habit, check email, check Ning.

Thing 20

MySpace and Facebook were interesting. I tried a MySpace page a long time ago but I found out that I never take the time to keep it up. My bad. I checked out some pages of friends of mine, nice to see their pages. Also looked at the different groups out there. There is something for everyone. I can understand why people like these social places. We all want to belong.
I doubt that we what allow it in school since academics is the objective.

Thing 19

I went through a lot of the podcast sites listed. I can honestly say I didn't get excited about podcast.
I do download music and books.
I'm not interested in having a podcast of news.
I didn't get any inspiration for creating a podcast at this time. Haven't anything to put out there.
Can't put my finger on why this Thing wasn't exciting. Okay to learn about but at the moment just really don't want to explore more about it. Being honest.

Thing 18

I posted the video from YouTube. It's pretty close to what people have been saying to me all my life. Maybe I should take the next step and become a official librarian.
It took me a short time to figure out how to put the video on my blog. I had to step back and quit over thinking the steps.
I had a good time looking through the videos. Some amazing creativity out there. I really enjoyed the video in the 18 Things description.
Having YouTube access in our library won't be happening soon. Being middle school, have to keep distractions to a minimum. I do hear the kids talk about them and they will tell me to look up their favorites.
