Maybe I’m just slow- but I just discovered igoogle.
This is the best thing ever!!! I’ve always kinda wished there was something like this and now there is- in fact, there probably has been for a long time, but I just didn’t pay any attention. Needless to say, I stumbled upon igoogle today and I’m hooked. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a customizable page (I make it my home page) where you can add calendars, mapquest, weather, and news. But that’s not all- for those of you who have facebook- you will be familiar with adding applications to your page. Well with igoogle, it is very similar.?You can add gidgets or gadgets or something and so you can have all these fun tools on your homepage and you can lay it out however you want. I’ve added a few things to my home page that?I use every day- like my bookmarks, a currency converter, recipe finders, etc.
You can also customize the skin/theme of the page. I selected some China background and after I selected it it asked me where I am located. Evidently, the sun will dynamically set on the theme as the sun sets in my own backyard! Fancy stuff!
I also added a link on my page to the video feeds from my other new favorite site:
Now this website is exciting as well. I can cook, but I never really learned “the basics.” I can create fancy pasta and stir fry dishes nearly from scratch, yet I find myself asking my mom stupid questions like- how long do you bake a potato?
Soooo this site has tons of super fun and easy tips for beginers and a lot of useful ideas and hints just for every day cooking needs.?Thanks to my friend’s sister Megan for turning me on to this site. Jen’s probably been aware of it for months since she’s a big blog reader- but I’m a little slower at these things!
Yay for fun geeky internet finds.
