Just to let you know- this blog is no longer active. I'll be keeping up my 101 in 1001 list until its completion, but will not be writing new posts. You can read the post below if you want the long version. Thanks for the journey to all my friends in the blogosphere!

Getting all my digital ducks in a row.

Since returning to blogworld, I've been trying to work out some of the digital kinks.

I have at least five different Google accounts that I have set up at different times for different times, projects, and purposes. The main problem with this is having to log back in and out to check my email or to blog. I have finally accidentally discovered a solution to this problem: a browser just dedicated to blogging. I know that Google Chrome is the cool way to get around the internet now, but I just haven't been able to break it off with Firefox yet. But I've found I can be logged into one Google account on Chrome and another on Firefox! (Which is such a simple solution that it's kind of embarrassing that this Instructional Technology major didn't figure it out earlier.) So now, on my computer, Chrome is just for blog reading, commenting, and writing, and Firefox is for everything else.

I've gone back and forth about how to log my (ridiculously low but better than what I have been doing- which is nothing) mileage and I've finally decided to just post the dailymile logo link. Their widget choices were not very satisfactory, but I like all the graphs and features and whatnot.

I've got my blogs I like to read mostly updated and organized on the left and right (Am I the only one that doesn't really like Google Reader and just prefers glancing at my blog lists on my site?) although I keep finding ones I've left off.

My header finally stretches across the entire width of the page, but I really need a new good picture of me running. (Maybe I should enter another big race?) Later, I want to mess around more with the background options too but right now, I like the color and that's good enough!

I'm getting close to finished with my 101 in 1001 list and that will be my last big addition for now!

Since we have a snow day tomorrow, I might just be wild and crazy and hit the dreadmill treadmill for a almost-bedtime run! (And then I'll have more fodder for the treadmill complaining post I'm planning next!)


  1. Hate the treadmill, but sometimes it's necessary. Happy New Year!

  2. I have the same issue with Firefox and Chrome. I have both open throughout the day. Girl gone wild on the dreadmill....
