On to Thing 10. I used the Image Generator link and created a Warholizer. I used a different image from the first in this post...I think it's a cute result though!
I've seen others use Wordle. I'd like to, but I don't have the right thing loaded on this computer...so I'm giving up. Not that I usually do that, it's just one of those days.
- Yarn Harlot. I've read her blog for years. This girl...she just cracks me up.
- Post Secret. I'm just nosy that way.
- People.com, see number 2.
- Overheard in New York. Can't. Stop. Laughing.
- Rocks In My Dryer - Meet Shannon...she's one great lady!
This was a great exercise. I found some really great things that I want to read, now I've just got to find the time! There were so many to choose from, and many more that I'd love to subscribe too. I've got a Technorati account...as do many of my fellow Mommy Bloggers. I like using Technorati, but don't use it much, only to "Fave" a particular blog I like. Companies like to know your rating before they give you products to review and giveaway, but that just depends on the company. This again, is a whole other topic!
I guess I didn't really introduce myself...so you don't have to call me Seeryus Library or Seeryus Mama, I'm Sky. I'm a (part-time) library lady at the North Platte Public Library. I've got two beautiful kids, Johnny who is 8 and Paige (but I call her Pea) is 13 months. She's the little cutie on the right hand side of the page. My husband and I also have a doggie daughter, a black miniature schnauzer named Lucy. She's got uncropped ears and a white stripe down her back. She's our Skunky-Jack Rabbit.
I've been blogging for a couple of years now, but I've only been blogging seriously since March. I've "met" a lot of really wonderful people. I host giveaways every once and a while...I've got a few in the works now.
That's about it from my corner!
I've been IM'ing for 8 and 1/2 years. I started out with AIM on AOL. Then, when I got my laptop four years ago switched over to Hotmail. We also use Skype on a regular basis. I really like Skype, as we use webcams. I can see and talk to my nephews in California. Usually, they are pretty excited to show me their stash of toys. It's also a way for them to visit with my kids, Johnny and Pea.
Now back to the library biz...In December or April...whatever, the library set up 12 brand spankin' new computers. Don't ask me what kind...I know they are a Dell and have a HUGE screen...but that's it. Anyway, Sara the Computer Guru asked our opinion about installing Meebo. So, we have it. I'm not sure if anyone uses it though. There have been patrons in the past ask, and we've always had chatting blocked. Personally, I'm glad to see it.
So, it's Friday, 4:00 pm....where is everyone? It looks like I'll have to save this post and see where I can get with it next week...until then...It's now Thursday morning and I was able to chat with Michael for a few minutes yesterday. So. Another Thing crossed off my list!
Now, I have a Learning Contract. Which totally makes sense. Each year my son brings home a contract at the beginning of the year in school. We have to read over it, talk about it...and we both promise to uphold that contract. It's about giving your all, completing your homework on time, being a good scholar...etc. Now, I have a contract. It's not only going to keep me on task for Nebraska 2.0, but I'm going to fill one out for housework. Why not?
This is a challenge that the Nebraska Library Commission through out...and I'm about challenges! You can read more about it on their blog. Or if you are a Nebraskan, go ahead and get yourself in the game. It's time to play! For more information, click here.
Hang on to your hats...I'm ready to roll!
