What to say about LibraryThing? Its great for keeping up with what you are reading and want to read. I didn't blog about it when I set it up, but after checking it today, I was amazed to see all the comments about the titles I've read. I love the headings for other suggested titles; especially SPECIAL SAUCE RECOMMENDATIONS!. How helpful is that for reader's advisory?

I checked out del.icio.us using the PLCMC account. I enjoyed browsing the the various blogs posted by others. I found one by one of our own PLCMC folks and decided to check it out. (yes, Chris, its you!). I was interested in what was linked to a "READER'S ADVISORY" tag and saw a post by Chris about the site called, allconsuming.net. I set up an account for this and think it will be fun and helpful, although today it was a little slow opening up links.
I even set up my own de.icio.us account but am a little confused on how to start; will play with it again.
This is the the site I looked at: http://del.icio.us/PLCMCL2/ReadersAdvisory

Today I checked out Site Pal, and played around with it. What fun to it was to design different characters. Although I haven't found use for it myself, other than fun, I can see how it can be used in some professional settings.

I can see Rollyo being useful as a website catalog by subjects. I have written lists of sites by subjects, but this can make it easier to control and to connect to the sites.
For example, my Diabetic Control searchroll can be especially helpful to those who may be interested but not aware of these sites. Tags that I used are diabetes, diabetic recipes, and low blood sugar.

The Online Generator is great. I've tried several of the sign generators. I designed a seal (for Freedom Regional) and a funny fortune cookie. Try this link and see what you can do.
Check out my sign.
