I’ve decided I’m suffering from acronym overload! LIS has a whole language all its own and most of it consists of acronyms. So, not only do I have to learn a boatload of new words with their meanings, I have to learn all the lovely little acronyms that go along with the new vocab! My poor head. I am pulling out my old high school habits that used to be horrible, but just worked! Rote learning at its finest: write the word, write the meaning, do it again, until its stuck up there!
Today I went to an RSS (really simple syndication), Bloglines.com, and set up an account for myself as part of my 23 Things. My understanding is that this will allow the blogs that I am interested in following as part of my LIS blog assignment to be brought to me through this Bloglines account. I think it will make following the LIS blogs a whole lot easier. As an aside, I also set up a new e-mail address this week at Yahoo! as a catchall for all this new “stuff” I am trying to learn so that it doesn’t get all mixed in with my normal mail. Pretty clever, I think!
