|We're all eager beavers at the start of this adventure|
I already have an iGoogle account (since my colleagues encouraged me to have one while doing the 23 Things last year) with my e-mail, BBC news and weather, Google maps and a live satellite image of cloud cover and I have enjoyed sprucing it up this week with a 'sporran' theme (I am Scottish in case you didn't know) and adding widgets etc. I was particularly proud of myself when I managed to add the Cam23 2.0 and CPD23 blogs to my library tab. I haven't been using iGoogle much since it is slow to upload on my laptop at home but it is useful to have everything in once place and I especially like having different tabs.

As is pretty obvious, I already have a blog. I started it in order to support my application for a scholarship for the States and have continued it as a form of diary keeping for all of my library visits (as Annie does). As I was putting together the slide show for the launch of Cam23 2.0 I had a look at most of the blogs for last year's programme and got some inspiration. There were so many different approaches and writing styles that I was encouraged to carry on writing as I had been.
I have looked through some of the other blogs for Cam23 2.0 and started leaving comments on ones that catch my attention such as Murmuration, Blurtmetry and The Hobbit Hole (I grant you that this was on a CPD23 post, just to confuse things further). I will try and have a look at different blogs each week so that I get an overview of what is going on. It is great to read posts by people from many different backgrounds who are having the same problems or opinions on various matters and I am hoping that this will help create the sense of community that was so prevalent last year.
