State of mind: Bored.
Date: I don't even know anymore. Let me check my home page! *clicks* *clicks back* It's the 27th of July
So, I've been tooling around the internet a lot this past weekend, refreshing my twitter and io9 live blog to see what was the latest from Comic Con. It's like I'm there! But without the smelly crowds, long lines, or actually being there.
But during my travels on the DubyaDubyaDubya, I noticed something. I have a lot of shit on the net to read. Blogs, BBs, You Tube, news feeds, multiple MySpace pages, Facebook, Twitter... and no way to really keep track of them all easily. What I want is a widget. A widget that lets me know when a blog I read has been updated by the blogger. That's the only thing I like about MySpace. The fact that whenever anyone on my 'friend' list updates, it shows up on my home page. It's handy. It would also keep me from clicking on Stellar's blog in some vain hope the man posted something. The closest I have found to suit my needs is iGoogle. You create a home page and you can add blogs to it and it actually gives you the last blog post listed. Neat feature, IMO. Except a few blogs that I have links to here aren't recognized and I can't figure out why. LL's blog was accepted, yet Beth's wasn't. I'm not sure yet if I can add my twitter account and have all the messages displayed or just what I put up like on the side of this blog. I want to read everyone's updates. Not my own. I'll test that out later and let you know what happens.
I love the web. Lots of stuff to do and read. I just want to organize it so I don't spend hours going back and forth between pages because I can't remember if I looked at it yet or maybe something new has been added since I was last there.
The one downside to this iGoogle? It's not on my desktop. I have to be online in order to get to it. And I can't just leave it open and see if anything new has been posted. I have to refresh it for new content. Work, work, work.
