Most of these online sites are very similar in many different ways. The whole purpose is to get your information out there and be able to view others info. The more online sites I am on the more overwhelming it seems. I personally started this class excited to learn all the new technology that is out there. I am at the point of being confused and frustrated. This is not going to stop. Every day I would imagine that new online sites are being created. It is hard to keep up.

On Librarything I was able to find a number of different things. First, it has book reviews of what others thought. The site is able to take what books I put in my catalog and give other suggestions of books that I might be interested in. KIN710 is opening my eyes to how to use all of this information that is available. My LibraryThing catalog is at http://www.librarything.com/catalog/lancaj11

I visited both podcast sites, http://www.podcast.com/ and http://www.podcastalley.com/. After visiting both sites I realized there is really good information all over the web in a number of different technology forms. There was a few sites that I added to my RSS feed that interested me. As nice as that was to hear someone talk about a topic I am interested in I found it hard to pay attention if it was longer then about three minutes.

My biggest problem with some of these blogs are, these are mostly just peoples opinions. I have spent a lot of time looking up information that is going to help me become a better teacher, but what I am finding is that I am getting overloaded with peoples opinions on stuff. Don't get me wrong I bet there is a lot of really good info out there, but I am not finding what I want.
I personally prefer discussion boards vs. blogs. The reason is because with the discussion boards I can get others input and opinion on a particular topic. If it is a topic I am not interested in I don’t have to look at it. If it is something I have an interest in. I can click on it and give my opinion or read what others have said. To me it seems faster and easier. This might just be because I have more experience with discussion board then blogs.
