It's Not the End

I'm feeling very nostalgic about this entire Nebraska Learns 2.0. This is the end of the line as far as *things* to do. But it isn't. There is so much more out there. (I think I've said that a lot!)

As I mentioned in my first post, I wasn't looking forward to podcasts at all. Turns out, it was my favorite thing to do! It's something that I will take with me. If it weren't for Nebraska Learns 2.0, I doubt I would have even bothered to try it out. Now look at me, I'm addicted! The lesson on Twitter has also jump started my tweets. It's such a great networking tool...not library related for me, but for my personal blog. I've had so many product requests in the last few weeks due to tweets. That, my friends, is what I'm talking about!

If anything, this whole 2.0 has opened my eyes even more. Don't fall behind the times. Keep up. More importantly, don't let technology scare you...just jump right in! I've enjoyed talking to my co-workers about their experience with Nebraska Learns. The good. The bad. The ugly. Heck, I'm just glad that they are trying it out!

I hope that the Commission will continue with another discovery program in the future. Maybe even a get together at the end of the next one, so we can meet others who have taken part. I look forward to new challenges in the future!



This was the one lesson I feared. Scared outta my wits. I did not want anything to do with podcasting. Nope, nada, not me.

Well, thanks to this fine and dandy...I'm now addicted to podcasts. You heard me right. Addicted. Love them! There are SO many great podcasts out there.

First and foremost, I've got to thank my SIL's and MIL for my ipod that I got at Christmas. I love it. It's bright pink and such a dandy. I. Love. It. I've been playing games, downloaded my music. Ahhhh, heaven!

So, back to podcasts. Yesterday I downloaded three. I had to go out and get groceries at Wal*Mart, so what better time to listen? I decided on Boutique Cafe. I read their blog, so thought I'd give it a listen too. The Imprinters, couldn't miss out on the Twilight madness could I? Finally, I subscribed to Words To Mouth. Each week a new book is featured. It's great! I'm so excited for the next edition! I've also added Words to Mouth to my Bloglines account.

I'm hooked.
