Instead of reading the paper in the morning, I read blogs and twitter postings. For me, its a great way to start off the day and I sometimes learn new and interesting things that keep me feeling hip and “in-the-know.” Which is increasingly important to me for some reason.
This morning McMommy posted about iGoogle and her favorite gadgets. So, of course I had to immediately create an iGoogle homepage because she made it sound so necessary.
My Favorite gadgets are:
Perfect for tweeting. Makes those long url’s fit!
Although I’m really digging Nutshell Mail, this is nice too. This lets you view and compose your gmail mail in the reader. There are a few Gmail gadgets, this is the better one I think.
Get the latest feeds from all the blogs in your Google Reader account. Sweet!
As the name implies, but a little more interesting. I’ve always been addicted to those random facts.
Since we are studying the weather in our homeschool curriculum right now I thought I’d add this little gadget to give me a heads up. Do you think its like a crib sheet?
This is the Fandango gadget. You enter in your basic info and then all the movie times automatically show up. If Big Daddy saw this he would laugh. I don’t know when the last time we’ve actually gone to the movies. But, you never know, I just might be able to go to one one day.
So that I actually know a little bit of what is going on in the world outside of blogging, homeschooling and the latest potty training techniques.
Oh, and just for fun I created this gadget. Just in case you cannot get enough of me and what I have to say! (I kid)
Do you use iGoogle? What are your favorite gadgets?
I love Igoogle. I don't have very many gadgets yet as I have yet to use it for very much, just started. I look forward to finding more. Thanks for sharing yours
