I created an account in shelfari. My user name is Melissa G. I think I may like using this in my personal life. I really like how I can keep track of books I want to read. With two small children I don't have as much time to read as I'd like. There are many times I read or hear about a book that I want to read, but by the time I actually have a chance to read I forgot about it. This will be an easy way to keep track of books I would like to read.
I have been using facebook for about a year now, and love it. It is such an easy way to keep in touch with people I don't get to see or call very often. I spent some time exploring Ning and think it can have some potential uses in an educational setting. I can see how it can be used to easily have discussions with classes and post updates for activities. I don't know if I would use it, but I may try to do more exploring with it.

I did customize my blog by adding a picture of 3D geometric shapes, a welcome note and my flickr slideshow. I had a really hard time figuring out how to link my flickr feed with the blog. After a lot of playing around, I finally figured it out. If you need any help with yours feel free to ask.
I set up my google reader account. I had never heard of google reader, but I really like what I see so far. I added the blogs I am following, the nbc local news, two local coupon sites and a printable coupon site. I like being able to view the new coupons and local news updates as they become available.
