23 More Things on a Stick–Thing #24

May 28th, 2009 · No Comments

If you read this blog regularly, you will recall that many of the posts in 2008 had to do with the 23 Things on a Stick program.  As described in my first post on the topic, 23 Things was designed to help library folk learn about Web 2.0.  Each of the “things” was a task involving some new, shiny internet toy.  To complete the thing, you had to write up a blog post about the tool and talk about the experience on your blog.  I got through all 23 of the things and it was a lot of fun.  I already knew about many of the tools but I did pick up a few new ones.  And I got some fresh insights on how to use some of the tools I was already familiar with.

Well, there’s a new program following up on the success of the first one.  23 More Things on a Stick picks up where the first program left off with 23 more things for us to learn about.  I registered back in the Winter but never found the time to do much.  They just extended the deadline to June, however, and my life is not quite as hectic now as it was a few months ago.  So, I’m going to take a crack at it.

Thing #24, Refresh Your Blog, asks us to take a fresh look at our blogs.  One of the suggested tasks is to update the look with a new template or design.  I’m not going to do that because I’m happy with my design and got to it after trying out several others.

I am, however, going to add a new feature to the blog.  Like many other netizens, I have been using Twitter to microblog.  I’m not going to talk much here about Twitter; if you haven’t heard of it, check out this cool short video introduction.  I’ve added a new gadget to the blog so you can follow my tweets here.  Now you too can immerse yourself in the minutiae of my daily life.  Is this what DARPA was thinking about when they created the internet 40 years ago?  🙂

I found the 25 Basic Styles of Blogging slideshow interesting.  Like most blogs, mine fits several of the styles, including Life Blogging, Insight Blogging, and Link Blogging.
