Thing#5 Flickr Post

I have used Flickr now for about a year, but mostly for uploading my own pics not necessarily for library use ideas. So the pic I found that I would use on my website or blog would be the following:

I like it because it is a fun reading motivating picture.

Thing#3 Setting up a Blog

Ok, I will admit it! When I first heard about Blogs, Wikis and 2.0 I was a little freaked out. I avoided it for as long as I could, at least a couple of years. Today I saw my buddy Glen's blog and got my inspiration to try it, so here it is my very First Blog: Library 2.0 (23 things). So next is the be continued.

Yahoo! Avatars

What I did: First I set up the Blog at, titled it, set up a couple of posts, then added the Avatar I created at

Thing#2 Pointers from Life Long Learners

The easiest habit for me would have to be Accepting Responsibilty for Your Own Learning because as a Life Long Learner I have been practicing this for years. Although it has been sometimes slow, sometimes hard, it has been steady......for example, three years ago I was given the opportunity to get a fellowship at UNT to get my masters in Library Science, and here this past May I was able to finish and graduate with my MLS. By taking responsibility for my own learning I was able to accoplish this.

The hardest habit would be Confidence in Yourself as a Competent, Effective Learner. After having been out of school for 15 years, then deciding to go to grad school was the hardest thing for me to do. I second guessed myself and doubted all my assignments for the first two semesters! Doing these 23 things might be a challenge for me, but I am willing to try. Hope it goes okay.
