Week 7 thing # 17 wiki

I have played around with wiki's but, I only like getting stuff from the features. I signed up for a pbwiki. Guess what? I lost it. I have put Class Act on the favorite list for Balto. County. Hopefully this is correct.

week 6, thing #13

At this point I am becoming overwhelmed, so many sites to subcribe to and too many names to register with. If you're going to use different names and passwords you would be wise to use the tracking sheet available to use. I know that I had registered for my account a long time ago. It was not on my blog. Why? Where was it? How did I loose it?
Notice the url is churchgirl1. I believe it was at this point I decided to stick with Class Act and simplifying what i do. All of these activities were new too me.

I have finally completed my 23 things. I thought I would create a cake to celebrate.
I enjoyed playing around with the different sites. Yeah!Yeah! I did get carried away but learning should be fun. Keeping that in mind I had FUN.

To the awards committee:
I incurred several problems completing this assignment. I managed to get them done. Please take into consideration the time,effort, and headaches I got when choosing who should get a prize. You know who I am promoting "CLASS ACT" of course.

Week 9 thing 22

I visited the Project Gutenberg site to check out downloadable books. Since that capability do no interest me I did not try to download a book. Also the site did not include any of the authors I like; I thought it was pointless.

Just for the heck of it sign my guestbook

I could not resist placing yet another thing on my blog. I placed a counter on the blog to see if anyone was actually viewing it. Then I realized that I did not know who the people were. Suppose they wanted to learn something from me? How would I know how to contact them? Well, my answer to both questions was to get a guestbook. So please sign in!!!

Google has this gadget that you can place on your web page so that you can access a mini google search. It makes searching easier since the mini search is included in your blog.

On the Merlin home page I saw an option to acquire widgets. I'm beginning to like placing objects on my page. Since I am a Class Act, I definetly have to constantly learn something new all the time. I decided to let Yahoo help me increase my vocabulary with this word for today widget. You can increase your vocabulary too.

My rollyo

Powered by Rollyo

I put the first rollyo on my page and thought that I may be able to return with the web sites I needed to include in my roll. When I searched google to get the web site address I wanted and tried to switch back and forth I would loose the address I would have prior to my next search. Then I decided to go back and create a new search that's why I have 2. I hope to figure this out. I need a prize any prize.

A rollyo is a tool that allows you to enter your favorite web addresses so that you won't have to enter them each time you visit. You can also share your rollyo with others who may have the same interest.

Week 8 #18 Online Applications Wordprocessing

Google Documents:

If I had known about Google Docs I would not have purchased a wordprocessing program that was so expensive. I notice that I can do the same thing with google docs. Look I can change the fonts: Jack and Jill went up the hill. ( Comic Sans). I can change the color of the text. They went to fetch a pail of water.

Look at my list:

  1. chinese food
  2. crab cakes
  3. shrimp salad

Here are examples of a bulleted list:

  • Name your favorite food
  • Name your favorite pasttime

The bullets are very limited there's only this one. Notice I can change the text size

Week 9 # 20 My Podcast ( blog about something technology related)

I chose this podcast so that you will be able to listen to Technology news as it is updated rather than writing about something that interest me. I am so facinated by the things that I am finding while doing my 23 things. So click on a date and enjoy the podcast about the article you choose. The one thing I do not like about this podcast is there are not titles to inform you of what you are about to hear. Take a listen anyway!

week 3 # Yahoo Avatar

Yahoo! Avatars

This Avatar is the beginning of my 23 things fun projects. I already had a Yahoo account consequently, I did not have to register for an account. As you progress through these assignments you will find that you register for several accounts. It is advised that you take advantage of the sheet available for you to print and record your various accounts. Especially, if each time you register for an account; you use a different user name and password. Believe me after the first couple name changes you will forget!

Thing! The problem with this is how far to the right should you look? The one thing I do not like about blogger is you can not layout your blog like you would like. I thought you could manipulate the design even with a template. It looks like you can't. If anyone out there see's this please help me!
