Link to Professional Portfolio

Professional portfolio

I was able to create a professional portfolio that truly is "skimpy". This is a great tool that I have already mentioned to friends and family. I plan on spending some time refining the site and adding to it as I progress in this cohort.

Plaxo versus LinkedIn

These two sites are quite similar however I am partial to the Linked In site. I have been on LinkedIn for quite some time now and have recently begun to use the site more often with my current professional role. One of the things I noticed right away was just how many more users there are with LinkedIn as opposed to Plaxo. Also the ability to join groups and instantly upload a resume to your profile is a nice draw I did not find readily available with Plaxo. Honestly since taking this technology course I have begun to realize that you can never be too connected so using both sites is a definite.

I used the podcast directory with ITUNES. I immediatley subscribed to Bill Simmons with ESPN as I think his work is awesome. I also subscribed to the power of applied kinesiology. This was with Blogtalkradio. I think it will be good to listen to people who are already in the field and the way that our program of choice is articulated. Exposure is key and the more of these podcasts I can find and begin to subscribe to the better.

Library Thing

This is a great site to find and share books that will be helpful in my career. I tagged a few of my favorites but I can also envision myself using this for specific situations. By that i mean if I am playing a team that runs a certain scheme I can come here for more info on that scheme or for more info on how to attack that scheme. It is quick and esay which is what the web is all about .

Image Generator

I have a tool like this on my Sprint phone that allows me to doctor my camera photos. I was not aware that there was this much of an internet presence for this type of thing. I found the fototrix site to be nice because it was free. I checked a few of the others as well but this site seemed to be one of the easier ones to use. Definitely something my son was interested in after I showed him an image of Lightning McQueen.
