All these exercises that I've been to during this journey has opened a lot of doors for me, as technology is always different, I try to upgrade myself on what's happening in the technology world. Especially working in the library, I will want to know what patrons are talking about when they chat to us about the technology they use at home or at work and what is out there. Web 2.0 have been a really wonderful experience for and I have learnt a lot from it. This journey has been great with so many of our other colleagues participating into the exercises and an experience to work together as a team and learn from each other. Way to go North Shore Libraries!!
Been to the other sites like the Rotorua and Central Libraries where they have Bebo in it. Our North Shore Libraries should have a site like that too so that our patrons will know whats happening. Especially when we have events or our system is going down or that we are upgrading our system.

I have joined to the Zoho writers account, at first it was a very bumpy start as the computer was very slow this morning and this exercise took a while to load and open. After giving Zodo a rest, I came back on this afternoon to work on creating some test documents. If I had more time I will explore on this exercise.
Here are my two tests of creating a Zoho writer:

I found this exercise a little easier than Delicious. Even though I had a little bit of trouble at the beginning but that is the learning part of this exercise. I can see why other people will be interested to take this Rollyo a step further.
Here is the website URL to go into my created Rollyo:

I had a bit of trouble working out how to copy this image to my blog and finally was able to figure it out after a few tries. I found the image generater really fun to use, there are lots of things to explore and to play. I enjoyed this exercise very much. I hope to do more exploring as there was so much to look and so little time to spare. I finally made it though. I found this image of the flowers and the text I've put in was very interesting and the flowers are lovely with bright colours.
Now I will know exactly what to do next time, just need to read the instructions a few times before I can get it.

The self-promotion tips for new librarians was also very interesting to look at as that can expand people's self-confidence and public speaking without being shy.
For me I love Wiki as you can look up anything you like from celebrities to tv programs and other very useful information like libraries. Very interesting how there is a library in Wiki and amazing what you can find too!!.
I can see why staff and customers are so into Web 2.0 as you can learn alot from the whole experience and I am glad that I went for the Web 2.0. Otherwise wouldn't have known there is so much more than just Google and Yahoo.

Mosaic collage of evening scenery from the buildings in different countries. Lovely colours and the view of the buildings in the evenings I am intrigued and can be miles away wishing that I was there. Thank you to the photographer David Gutierre for putting such a creative mosaic.
Flickr is just a great, I can look for anything I like from tulips to mosaics and many other things. I really enjoyed the experience since I know what I need to do on uploading and posting etc.

I am really into tulips and since the last photo that I uploaded was from my personal computer and is a painted one, I looked for a real tulip instead and upload it from Flickr, they have really lovely tulips in there. This time around was very easy to navigate as I am starting to know my way round now and the steps I have missed. First I save this photo to my file under H:drive, then I went to upload photos and videos and clicked onto Choose photos, a popup with a list of staff names, I clicked onto my name on which I saved the photo on and just opened the file and uploaded the tulip to the Flickr account and blogged it to my account from Flickr.
I will like to thank the photographer Elvy for this lovely photo of the tulip.
A painting of an orange tulip. I will like to thank Anna my sister for letting me upload this painting in my. I had real difficulty on what to do but I've finally have slowly worked my way through this whole Flickr exercise.

I have been very slack on my blog lately and sorry that I haven't written in it for so long. I am a little behind on the Web 2.0 and gradually picking up the pace this week with the Flickr and adding just one photo in my blog. There will be more to come soon.
Apart from juggling with my studying, I have started going to ballroom dancing lessons with my friends on Wednesday nights in Albany. The studio is call U2CanDance, there are two nights that you can attend to Wednesday and Friday nights. I tend to go on Wednesday nights with my friends, as Friday nights I am mostly out in the cinemas watching movies with my other friends.
I will try to update my blog more often. Have a great weekend everyone and take care!!

This photo was taken in Manly beach, Sydney when I was visiting friends earlier in the year. That day I was at Manly Beach, there was a swimming competition going. The sand castle behind me was the largest I've seen so far.
