Week One Blogging – 23 Things Kansas

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by information? or by technology? Today, I feel like I’m drowning in email. Thus, I decided to try and clean up my inbox to only discover a multitude of 23 Things Kansas emails (and yes they were buried by other emails). For those of you who don’t know me, I am Marcia Philbrick and work at Nemaha Valley High School. My roles include  librarian, technology coordinator, PowerSchool administrator, course codes ‘expert’, and teacher. In addition, I delve in eRate, KIDS and anything else handed my way – and – I get email for each and everyone of those roles.

So why am I sitting here writing this blog? I wanted to participate in 23 Things Kansas to see how others are integrating Web 2.0 tools into their curriculums. I’m counting on all of the great librarians out there to share their ideas and provide incentive for me to find more ways to utilize these tools at Nemaha Valley.

This isn’t the first blog post I’ve written and hopefully it won’t be the last. However, I struggle with posting on a regular basis. Thus, it is hard to develop a regular readership.

Even though I may not have a regular readership, I do have blogs that I try and read – just not regularly. Some of my favorite blogs include

Hopefully, by participating in 23 Things Kansas, I will be able to diversify this list of favorites by adding more blogs about books – especially books for teens.

  1. Hi Marcia! 🙂 I was happy when I saw you register for 23 Things Kansas! Sorry about the flood of emails on the first day. We switched everyone over to the digest format, and hopefully that will help. I love your site, especially the Flickr badge.

  2. Heather, I think we may need to talk Marcia into helping with future NEKLS school librarian training! She’s a font of techie info! – Sharon (NEKLS Tech Consultant)
