Final Post

I'm afraid that this will be my last post on Being You. I have learned so many web 2.0 tools while making my blog. I would have to say that ImageChef was the funnest tool. I love the idea of putting your own words into a picture. I also discovered Googledocs , which I feel would be very helpful in the future. I have already used googledocs when I forgot my flash drive at home. I loved being able to experience the web 2.0 tutorial. I wish good luck to another rotation of web 2.0. :)

This week, I visited Wordle. This is a site where you can make word mosaics out of poems, stories, or just your own words. Wordle can make any word passage look beautiful. I made a mosaic out of everything I've blogged about since I created my blog. Making a picture is very simple. All you have to do is press "create" on the website's home page, then, right a passage of your choice. Next, press, "go" and then you can change the color of your wordle by pressing the "Format" button. I think wordle could be helpful in alot of ways! I hope you enjoy wordle as much as I did.

Google Docs

This week, I visited Google Docs, on Google. Google docs is a application on google where you can share a document with somene on another computer without making a second document. You see, if you keep just making copies to another computer by E-mail, you may get confused on which is which when the other person sends it back. With Google Docs, it's the same document, when you send it back and forth, that makes alot less documents and alot less for your computer to take in. Go to the link above, and then make an google account. After that, create a new documnt and invite friends to share the doc. with. Its that easy. I'd reccomend Google Docs for anyone who has problems dealing with big reports, with Google Docs, there is no problem with all the organizing. I hope you find Google Docs as helpful as I did. :)

This week, I visited This is a website were you can keep track of all the books you've read. You can see my shelf on the upper sidebar to the right. These are the books read in the past year. Making my shelf was actually really easy, all I had to do was make an account on the website and add all the books you would like. It's that easy! Shelfari is a great website for keeping track of all the books you have read, are reading, and plan to read. I would reccomend Shelfari to anyone who loves to read, like me. :)

Book Talk on Voicethread

This week, I visited Voicethread is a web site where you can add your voice or caption to a picture. I made a Book Talk (or review) of "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyer. Creating my book talk was simple and fun. All I had to do was create a account, press the "create" button, and then press the "upload" icon, and then pick a picture you would like (from your computer or the internet), I then pressed the "add comment" icon and leave your voice or caption to describe the picture or topic you are thinking of. It's that easy. I would truly recommend Voicethread for many people, and all people who are willing to try it. I hope you enjoy Voicethread as much as I did. :)
