Exercise # 15 Rollyo

I love the idea of creating my own personalised search engine.
Definitely a fan of this one.
I went into the rare books site and searched for art and maritime books. The links were superb,especially The European Library Exhibition.
Found some awesome photos in the photo forum ,especially ones of White Island.

Exercise #14 LibraryThing

I could have spent hours in this site. Definitely have to go back in now I have set up my account.

I should have taken the Library Thing tour first,but found it so easy that now I will go back and take it.

Exercise #13 Image Generators

I went into

Didn't really appeal but I will put in the link for anyone interested.

Also went into Flickr again and a site for making post it notes. The url is

"I am a schizophrenic control-freak with a knack of getting into trouble."

This is what I am according to

When I have more time I would like to go in other generators-perhaps try for fridge magnets./

#12 Sandbox wiki

I found this exercise relatively easy to do. At first I deleted my link so had to go back and do it again.

It helps to save!!

I am also a lover of heritage roses also David Austin's English Roses. A rose should try to have everything:repeat flowering, beauty and fragrance.

Exercise #11 Wikis

Have been into Wikipedia for a quick overlook, but always went to other sources afterwards.
I went through all the links that were mentioned,eg the tutorial-that guy is getting on my nerves!!
Went to the Oregon Library Instruction Wiki-a resource for librarians to help them learn from another.
Collaboration is everything for wikis.
Would be good to have a patron-library collaboration in book reviews and it would be useful for sharing ideas on a subject that needs updating frequently.

This is my first post.

I have been so nervous about setting this up.
Do hope it works. It feels like I have spent hours on this computer!!!
