I have missed my Sorting Saturday posts for the last two weeks! Not very organised at all!
I am still working on organising my bookmarks. On March 19 I wrote that I was trying out Delicious, Diigo and Springpad. I was having some technical difficulties with Yahoo!/Delicious at the time, but I have since resolved these by starting fresh with a new account.
I have recently read Carole Riley's short book published through Unlock the Past - Social Media for Family Historians. I have been trying out many of the web sites Carole mentions in the book. Some of them I have heard of for a long time but have never actually tried to use.
I am now on Flickr. I have added a few relevant contacts but have not added any of my photographs...yet! Watch this space! On Flickr I am ausgenjourneys.
I am now using LibraryThing to catalogue my genealogy and history books. I have added a few other genealogists to my connections list on LibraryThing - please add me if you would like. On LibraryThing I am ausgenjourneys.
I am still trying out Diigo and Delicious for bookmarks. I have imported all my Google bookmarks into Delicious but I still have them set as private while I sort through them. I will be progressively creating public bookmark lists. I have added a few other genealogists to my Network on Delicious, please add me to your if you would like. On Delicious I am australiangenealogyjourneys.
On Diigo I am ausgenjourneys.
I have created a new YouTube account specifically for my genealogy interest. On YouTube I am ausgenjourneys.
Now for something a bit odd.
Yesterday I noticed that the number of visitors to my blog had increased quite dramatically. I checked my blogger statistics page and discovered that a 1:00 pm yesterday afternoon there were 274 visits to the main URL of my blog (http://ausgenjourneys.blogspot.com) all from one particular country.
I realise that this would have been some automated software visiting my blog and not 274 people. Has this happened to anyone else before?
