I've been a member of Facebook for awhile now. For me use comes in phases- I can check it every day for a week, then go two months without looking at it.

For me, the best thing about Facebook is reconnecting with people. My dad was in the army until I was a junior in high school. Facebook has allowed me to find my best friend when I was ten, a group of people I went to school with in Germany, plus it's a fun way to keep in touch with family- none of mine lives in Pierre, and most don't live in South Dakota.

One of my favorite parts is the chat feature. Facebook will notify you if you're online at the same time one of your friends is and you can message each other. There are also a lot of quizzes, which I can't seem to stop taking, and games. I haven't started playing the games yet- they can be addictive and I don't need another way to lose time on the internet.

Sooo Behind

RSS Feeds-

You've all seen how well I keep up this blog! :) Without RSS feeds I'd miss reading all of my favorites. Who has time to check for new posts?

While I do use blogs to keep up professionally- I also use the RSS feature to keep up with my favorite comics and family news.

The following is a short list of my must reads:

Unshelved- It's a library comic- you know you've all read it!

Sheldon- A ten year old boy billionaire and his grandfather live with Arthur the talking duck, Arthur's adopted son Flaco, and their pug Oso. Hilarious!

Awful Library Books- This blog shows why weeding is so important.

Another Stupid Blog- This is Laurie Notaro's blog- it's either called Another Stupid Blog or Against My Better Judgement, I honestly don't know. She updates like I do, infrequently, but she's my favorite author.
