Technorati is not for me. Too much information to wade through. I found the site quite difficult, maybe it was just my frame of mind today, but I would rather use other sites to find the information I was after.
I am enjoying learning all the functions on my digital camera. I like the fact that I only need print the photosI really need for my scrapbook. I can also delete the really bad ones and store the rest on the computer, disc or on flickr.
I will be trying to get to grips with the video function on the camera soon.


Wow, talk about a new world of technology. I am so impressed, amazed and shocked by all this new knowledge and technology I am learning. I am so glad I took part in this professional development.

Looking at the different ways you can use fickr has really intrigued me. In the beginning I found the language/web talk confusing i.e. web application, mashups, API etc. but once I set my minb to learning about it, it become really easy and simple.
I found the idea of mashups quite interesting. I was fascinated about how you can use Flickr and another website i.e. google earth or utube to create something else.

I have discovered though that you really do need quite a bit of time to create these things and an openmind when discovering new information. When I have more free time I think I will give the mashups of one of the other tools a try.

The trading card idea was fantastic. I showed my daughter and she enjoyed having a play creating some cards. We had a good laugh at some of the ideas we came up with.

Having fun

Flicking through Flickr

Watching the video on u-tube has given me greater insight to the world of photograhy. I have just purchased a digital camera and am really excited to create an account with Flickr to upload, store and share my photo's. I never thought about how I would feel about losing all those precious photos - so having a back up is a great idea.

I was a little nervous when I uploaded the flickr website - thinking it would be difficult. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy and friendly the website is. The photo's on Flickr are amazing and choosing one to share with you was rather difficult. I have found this amazing and talented photograher who captures images to a perfect degree.

Below is the link to the photo I have found rather interesting. It is called 'party of five'. The photograher who took the photo has an amazing eye for detail and focus. Have a look at the photo and you will be amazed.

Today is the day I start this web 2.0 journey. I really don't know much about any of the exercises so this is going to be a journey of discovery for me.

Hi, my name is Tiffany. I am in the prime of my life . I am green and love going for walks around the neighbourhood or for rides in the car. During the week I spend my days lounging in the sun , weather permitting or protecting the home.
