Actually, this is a neat idea since it allows for comments on pictures. Theoretically, it should also offer an RSS feed for your new albums, although I don't see that in place at Scrapblog even though it's powered by phpNuke. Interestingly, there are direct links from the individual pictures to "print this photo on Shutterfly."
Forgive me as I tie up loose ends on my site regarding the whole RSS/Copyfight thread (which Donna already brought full circle). The upshot is that Alex Macgillivray is now providing a second RSS feed for Copyfight, and this one includes titles, permalinks, and the first 150 words of the post, plus it's updated every 20 minutes. Thanks, Alex!
However, I have to note the choice quote Donna received from her brother-in-law, chiding her for lack of an RSS feed:
Wow - I wish I'd tracked how quickly the number of feeds in my aggregator has grown - can't believe I didn't think to do that. Sigh. Jim McGee refers to himself (and therefore Pat and me) as "RSS Bigots." The only thing I would add to that is to prepend the word "avowed" and print it on my business cards.
I had a long day at work today, and I was able to sit at my computer for all of five minutes so I wasn't able to read my aggregator at all until 9:00 p.m. tonight. I'm now reading 190 feeds in there. It took me ONE HOUR to scan every post on those 190 sites today. I'm now going back and reading through some of the ones I saved, but I basically got up to speed on the entire day's events in ONE HOUR. If you don't think RSS saves you time and makes you more efficient, then get a stopwatch and see how long it takes you to manually scan 190 sites. You can't even click to 190 sites in ONE HOUR.
Did I mention it took me ONE HOUR?
This is a test post to show how blogging works.
I was thrilled to read in the January 24/31 issue of Entertainment Weekly that Matthew Broderick is starring in a remake of one of my favorite musicals, The Music Man. The blurb includes the following quote:
Add your own punchline here, especially if you think libraries should filter their internet terminals, ban Harry Potter books, or report their patrons' reading habits....
Thanks to the LIS450LW class blog, I found the Urbana Free Library's Construction Updates blog! Excellent use of the blog format from a library where I spent many a day avoiding homework during graduate school. :-)
I really wish I had more time to explore Wikis, Twikis, and Swikis. I'm intrigued by the concept, but I just don't have time to do them the proper justice at the moment.
