Thing 30

This was a fun assignment!


I really like this one--isn't it cute! I like that the I Can Has Cheezburger site lets you do a keyword tag search for photos. I searched for "books" and found this one.

I found another lolcat photo I really like on the LOLcats site. Click here to link to the photo below.

I always wanted a DIY talented pet! I do wish you could search on LOLcats.com, not just browse through all the images.

This was not the funnest assignment for me. I had a very difficult time getting Scrapblog to work.

I read through their FAQ section and searched the internet for information on why I was not getting Scrapblog to work. I should have just gone back to the assignment page and clicked on their Hints and Tips Link for Scrapblog--would have had all the answers to what I ended having to do right away. I discovered that I had to enable Pop-ups, put Security on Low, make certain my Filter allowed the website, hide the bottom taskbar, so that finally all the buttons would show on the screen (or almost show--could see top of button at bottom of screen and guess what it was for, and see bottom of buttons on top of screen and again make a guess as to what they were).

Anyways, I did complete the assigment and created my own Fantasy Book Lover Scrapblog on Favorite Books and Authors. I posted to both Flickr and my blog--however, the blog posting did not work. It said that it posted it, but it didn't show up. I had to export the scrapblog pages as JPEGs to my computer, then upload them as pictures into Bloogger to post them to my blog--ANNOYING!

Uses for Scrapblog with a Library--well, the main use that comes to mind is using it to create an online scrapbook of library programs and events. Create fun advertising for the library by showing the fun from past programs.

This assignment was very easy to do. Hardest part is coming up with creative fake headlines. Library’s could create fake covers to advertise programs/events—creative advertising.

I made a Wired Cover, Time Cover, and Generic Cover.

The links for the Time Person of the Year and Rolling Stone Cover did not work for me.

There's a lot of fun to be had with this assignment. Like Flickr, Photobucket has many features, but more flexibility with creating albums since your not limited to your own personal photos.

I enjoyed myself. See my photos at my Photobucket webpage.

This is a great site for libraries to find photos to add to advertising/promotions (as long as credit is given).

With many people creating avatars on the web--as I saw on ABC's i-Caught this past Tuesday 9pm--it's good to know how it's done, so I can help others if they ask.
