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.

Social Networking

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.

Moved my website

I found out that uploading documents in weebly took FOREVER. So, I recreated my website in yola. I think yola is actually easier than weebly. Here is the address of my new website:

Thing 9

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 created my flicker account and uploaded some picture of the word walls in my room and the 2009 ICTM state math competition. It was really easy to upload, label and tag my pictures. My screen name is M Gordon. Check out my pictures.

Google Reader

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.
