Thing 9: Online Books/Cataloguing & Misc

I signed up for LibraryThing and my username is ambermulnix. I added the gadget to my blog. These are the next four books on my summer reading list. I like how it had a list of recommendations for me. I'm always looking for a good book to read.

My dad, husband, and boys left Friday morning for a week long fishing trip to Canada. I heard from them on Saturday night that they were already catching Walleye and Northern and eating them for lunch. I bought each of them a camera for their trip and hope they are taking many pictures! I'll post pics when they return.

I am keeping busy with things to do around the house. Gong to try and tackle the bathroom this week. It needs a nice face lift. New curtain rod, curtain, rugs, paint, and towels. Here is a picture of my new shower curtain.

Thing 8 - YouTube

Going to the Great Jones County Fair next week with my Aunt Joyce to see Lady Antebellum. Have never seen them before and LOVE their music. Don't actually have tickets since they sold out so quickly, but will try to find someplace to sit and enjoy the music. Wish us LUCK!!

For only the $10 it takes to get in the gate, you can still have a great view of Lady Antebellum or any of the other Grandstand Acts at the 2010 Great Jones County Fair. With our big new stage , the free hillside grass seating is now an even better deal than it was in the past, just in time for YOU to come and enjoy the 2010 Great Jones County Fair!

Thing 7 - Social Bookmarking

ambermulnix is my Delicious account name and I imported all of my bookmarks that I had on my computer. I think this is much better to have all of my favorites here just in case my computer would crash. I'd be lost if I had to start all over with my Favorites! Also, I am taking the time to cleanup my favorites. There are many that I know that will probably get DELETED.

Do you see this as a useful tool? I definately think this is useful. I spend so much time looking for a good site on the web... now I'll look here first and see if someone already found the good stuff and I won't have to waste time looking myself!Would you actually use this? I can see myself using a lot.

Before this excercise I didn't even know or had ever heard of Social Bookmarking. So glad that I decided to do the 13 Things @Coe this summer!

Happy Birthday America!

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Thing 6 - Me and Twitter - not so much!

Discovery Exercise
Create a Twitter account – √
Find at least 3 people to follow – √
Retweet a post or two from someone you're following - √
Post your Twitter name to your blog - AmberMulnix

Tell us who you're following –

Reflect on your experience using/reading about Twitter. I think it would be much better if I had a good phone. My kids have a better cell phone than I do!! :-)
I don't have a data plan and twittering is not something I think I would do sitting at my computer.
