Blogging session

Chatlogs put online: 1 (good); Wikis updated: 1 (good); Posters mounted in Infolit iSchool: 1 (good) (and so forth and so on)

Spent some time tidying up after last discussion session - amount of posting and updating seems to increase exponentially but can't blame anyone else but self for this. Latest effort is a wiki at http://infolitischool.pbwiki.com/ where already have put up links to chatlogs etc. of previous discussion sessions - list looks rather impressive if say so myself.
Chatlog of last discussion, on blogging, is now at http://sleeds.org/chatlog/?c=316 . Some people mention their blogs in the chat, but Robin didn't: Robin's blog is at http://librarianbydesign.blogspot.com/ Think I might as well put in text from my SL notecard as well: Dulcie Dull to read, but gives some info:
"Sheila Yoshikawa is in RL Sheila Webber, faculty member in the Department of Information Studies, University of Sheffield, UK. She started blogging The Information Literacy Weblog in 2003, and has been regularly blogging ever since.
"My main blogs [note confusing slip into 1st person here] are
- Information Literacy Weblog: http://information-literacy.blogspot.com/ (professional blog)- Adventures of Yoshikawa http://adventuresofyoshikawa.blogspot.com/ (main SL blog)
- Low prim Living with Style http://lowprimstyle.blogspot.com/ (more irregular fashion blog for my alt) [all is revealed, eh]
"I'm a regular co-contibuter to:
- Inquiry Based Learning: http://cilass.group.shef.ac.uk/ (education blog)
- Information Literacy meets Library 2.0: http://infolitlib20.blogspot.com/ (professional library blog)
- iheartsl: http://iheartsl.com/ (this is a high volume SL fashion blog, so I'm only a minor contributor to this)
[so frankly is wonder that get any time to eat, sleep, remind friends and family that am in land of living etc.]----
"Obvious resources/ links
- Second Life group: Second Life bloggers
- Ning community: http://secondlifebloggers.ning.com/
- Bloghud (enables you to blog from within SL: I haven’t tried this tool myself): http://bloghud.com/
"There have been various discussions inworld e.g. as part of Orange Island media week earlier this week. There is a blog entry at http://www.orange-island.com/?p=565 with links to audio recordings of the sessions (“Blogging virtual worlds” and “Using a blog as part of a media strategy”)"

Now an interesting addendum to latter is that have discovered yet another pic which has been siphoned off Flickr and onto web page of multinational company, namely a quite fetching pic of me in fairy queen outfit examining Liverpool Uni's website on a prim. Indeed pic is used to illustrate Orange Island item on web on a prim. Credits me, but even so. And how did they find it? Didn't index photo with prim word. Hey ho.

BTW the photos are totally irrelevant to what is discussed in this post. Apart from being of me, of course.

Added later Revisited Flickr pages and in fact is not wonder that photo was found since I had entitled it "Web on a prim". How had I managed to forget that in a few short days? Worrying.

The blog of Sheila Yoshikawa on her adventures in Second Life. This may be very thrilling. Or possibly not.
