The End of Week 5: Rollyo

I found the whole Rollyo thing pretty frustrating, as I, again, would not have been able to figure out how to put it on my blog without outside help. Personally I can't see myself using it. However, if I had some type of passion (cats, taxidermy, taxidermy of cats, etc.) it might be more useful to me.
Thank you Anthony. This would never have made it here without you! Enjoy

Library Thing

This looks like a fun site to play around with. I emailed it to a few of my friends who read constantly and like to keep lists of what they've read and what they want to read. I had trouble (again) bringing the link to my blog. Thank you Jackie. Those of us who know nothing of html's/Java (or whatever it's called) are pretty clueless....

RSS Thing

I did it, finally. It took me about 2 weeks. I gotta say, from a non-computer-literate point of view, the directions were fairly non-existent. I tried to listen and watch the little tutorial videos but that wasn't happening because it would stop running after about 30 seconds. Miriam, again, came to my rescue. Katie showed me how to add my RSS links to my blog. I wish that had been further explained.
My problem is that, being part-time, I only have so many opportunities at work to *play around* with the lessons. I can't really afford the time to experiment. I, personally, would prefer specific typed-up instructions for me to follow to the letter. Otherwise, I get pretty frustrated........

Now a word about technology........

I love my new cell phone (how queer am I?)!! My husband got it for me (my old one was as big as our house phone). I've taken pictures of all my kids, friends and family with it and have their faces pop up when ever they call me. I think I'm soo cool. Last week my husband brought home an i-phone for me but I'm having him take it back. I'm perfectly happy with what I have. And besides, I've just fiured out how to use all its bells and whistles, except the games. I can't figure out the games. I wish they just had solitaire.

Here's my flickr pic, thanks to Miriam. I'm told Snapfish is more user friendly. If Miriam wasn't here to help me I would still be trying to figure it out.
