Whew! This can be so overwhelming, addictive, as well as informative! Searching through others blogs, I came across a cool You Tube video which I immediately sent to my nephew in Utah--avid sci-fi junkie that he is will enjoy it!
I posted earlier in my blog about my disappointment in not getting more comments on my posts, even though I had already posted on several others. I posted on one of the linked blogs that it is like the old saying "to have a friend, be a friend." Well, o.k. Here I go. I have spent hours today on this thing, on my cell phone texting, and on the land line listening to a friend in need. This community we inhabit and its ever flattening environ is fascinating! I am somewhat intimidated by it, but also intrigued and "HOOKED"! So in accordance with this Activity, I will be posting more to other Library2Play blogs. Hope to hear back from you!
I am supposed to say something about what I feel is important from the articles and blogs we were instructed to read. Although I feel I have already expressed that, let me be more explicit. I agree that it is important that posting comments be easy. I was relieved that Doug Johnson said that he skips the ones that require a log-in, because I can already see this taking way too much time out of my limited clock hours, (especially after school starts back up!) I do feel that interaction is why we are in this and I intend to visit more of the other Library2Play blogs and comment in hopes to get some conversation going. I am feeling a little lonely out here! And I will be faithful to the rules of Edublogger Etiquette!
After listening to the podcast on "lurking", I just want to say that it is a way for those of us who are new and "shy" to get emboldened (is that a word?) to go ahead and jump in! So I have been lurking and will continue to do so. I tend only to speak up when I feel I have something significant or helpful to say. And that appears to be the gist of what many of the blogging etiquette articles say. There you have it--My two cents!
