Angela, Webmaster

I’m really liking this maintaining a website project. I linked to it the other day but I think I will again. I’m getting lots of hits and it’s so exciting! I’m evenĀ a top Google result! Go me.

I don’t have a lot more to say besides that. I’m working on a pathfinder for my reference class that’s due next week. It’s going pretty well except I had to be pretty creative when looking for reference materials pertaining to buying a house. I managed to find an online encyclopedia of legal terms that had a little bit of information. I also found one other legal book but that’s about all. This pathfinder will be meager in the reference section but ok everywhere else.

Later Gators.

Drowning

I feel OVERWHELMED right now. I know this is not a personal blog, even though it is my own personal blog (ha), but I have to say it. I wanted to write about our readings this week but I’m not even quite sure what RDF does or what an ontology really is. I’m experiencing a little information overload at the moment between this class and my reference class. Add that to the fact that we are moving next week and my 5 month old is boycotting sleep AND I had to listen to Elmo sing about poop for about an hour today and you get one tired library student/SAHM who needs a break. So I think I will give myself permission to not check D2L for a few days and hopefully try to stick to it. I’m a little obsessive about checking for updates. Unfortunately, it’s not like I’ll even be taking a break because I have a paper due in reference very soon that I need to start and, like I said before, I’m moving. Augh, this sounds like I’m a big whiny baby. I’m just trying to deal with everything and feeling like I’m not doing a very good job.

I do have one school related note. I played the ESP game the other day and loved it! Well, it was pretty fun and apparently is actually accomplishing something. If this class has done one thing for me, it had made me appreciate tags. That reminds me, I really need to subscribe to David Weinberger’s blog.

Time for bed.

It’s becoming clearer

I think I’m finally getting this Web 2.0 thing. I’ve been hearing the term thrown around for a while now but had never really stopped to inquire what was, mostly out of fear of looking stupid. Well, thank goodness for LIS 5433! I read my assigned articles this week and hello! I love web 2.0! I myspace, I flickr, I blog (well, I’m a far better reader than blogger), and Google Maps has been my choice of direction finders for a long time. I’ve been participating in this crazy 2.0 stuff for a while now (I even had a friendster account when those were cool) but my uneducated self just thought I was spending too much time on the internet. I guess I’ve just been preparing myself for my future profession. Now if I could learn html I’d be set.
