This is a great tool to use for book clubs or book talks. I liked that I could chat with other fellow librarians about books and get their opinions on them. I would have to save the site to my favorites list schedule it along with the many other sites to periodically check back with.
How Cute! I searched "Library2Play" and "Spring Branch ISD" and was surprised to see some of blogs from this class. This activity has truely been a big hit to all involved. I was intrigued with the blogs on Technorati. I didn't really care much for Syndic8. I was not sure as to what I was looking at or looking for. This seemed like a waste of searching time.
I can put all of my interesting sites in one place. This cuts down on the need to search for news or important events. I like that I could select & save only the sites that were of interest to me. Whether it be local news or the latest reviews of new books, I can keep it all in one location.

I enjoyed the iGoogle and the Google calendar. I even set one up relating to things that are of interest to me. News, weather, and celebrity news. I need a calendar to help me figure the days of the week. I like how I can save it to my laptop and always be current with important events.
