I had been using Del.ici.ous and found it very useful to keep track of useful websites by tagging them. However that didn't last long and I resorted to using my favourites again to store websites not just once but sometimes two or three times. That has to stop now and it will be back to Del.ici.ous.
To be honest I did not like Technorati. I found it difficult to find out what it was about and the site isn't easy to navigate either. I did ping and then claim my blog?? but then lost interest and left it at that.

I quite liked Google Books which I had heard of but hadn't used before now. In a work sense, certainly useful if someone is looking for a book on a specfic topic where they might find actual full text or details of a recently published book. Now that I have discovered Google Books, I will use it more myself.
The Web 2.0 Awards list is overwhelming! but useful to know about...and again you could get carrried away. I had a quick look at the health and organization section just to say that I did actually make an effort and have a look! The Backpack site in the organization section looked interesting as a means of keeping track of and sharing information with your colleagues.
Next to tagging, del.icio.us and technorati...oh the pressure to keep up!

Today, I am finally getting around to catching up on my 23 things...........I am so behind and I have just managed to upload a picture through Flickr. My picture is a painting of a village called Casares which is located in the Western Costa Del Sol Region. We were on holiday near Malaga last year and we didn't unfortunately visit this very pretty village but bought the painting at a seaside stall. I should say that my hubby haggeled expertly for the best price while I left him to it and watched from a safe distance! I have to say that while it was easy to create a flickr account, I found it tricky enough to use Flickr's blogging tool to post the picture to my blog. Then again that could just be me panicking and trying to rush through this exercise to move onto Library Thing, GoogleBooks, Del.icio.us, Wikis.........
