Week #9 YouTube- 20

I put this video from YouTube on with very little difficulty! "Copper Clappers", alliteration Johnny and Jack style (thanks, Susan at TO, for showing this to us). I think YouTube is great; another way for humankind to show how fantastically creative --for better or worse--we are.

Week #6 Tagging Folksonomies and Technorati--13, 14, 15

Technorati--I'm understanding that the tags you put in your blog enable a Technorati search to find your blog among the millions of blogs--over 50 million!!-- out there. Before I fool around with my HTML I want help from someone techie sitting right there with me.

I saved my Flickr photos to Del.icio.us, haven't subscribed to any webpages yet. I think this may be something I'll use. I set up a Del.icio.us account and put a link to it on my blog.

Folksonomies (love the word) , if I'm understanding right, are similar to my Favorites listings, things I'm keeping but have lumped together in a folder under a broad descriptive name (the tag)?? You'd have to do this with all these sites if you use them a lot. I guess it's an organizational function.

Week #2 Blogging 3, 4

I did this long ago, too, but never posted. I'm set up and registered, and working hard on tracking my progress

Week #1 part 2

If you're raising a family you learn to look at problems as challenges early as a way to keep your sanity, or most of it, at least. This becomes your way of approaching most things after a while and makes life easier and much more fun.

Hardest habit--having confidence. It's very hard to believe that difficult decisions will turn out right. I tend to just wait and see. I've made mistakes, so I just have to do my best and keep trying.

Week #1 part 1

I did this long ago but never blogged about it. I'm thrilled to be participating in this program even if I don't finish by deadline. When I began, I knew nothing about most of these things.
