Joining Up

In today's world, when the Internet is a huge thing, social networks are huge. I mean, if you're reading this, you're on one right now! Out of my class of 40 something, I think about all but five of my classmates have Facebooks. Half of them have blogs, and every one of my classmates has an email. That's a lot. For part of the Blogging Challenge, we were to answer these questions... Enjoy :)

Q. What Internet sites have you joined?

A. A LOT! I'm on Blogger (duh), Facebook, Yahoo!, Google, Neopets, Snapfish, Piknik, Youtube and probably twenty more...

Q. How much info do you give out on those sites?

A. Umm.. I try not to give out much. I normally stick to my first name, state, and age.

Q. Have you filled in the asterisk questions? (with this*)

A.Sometimes. Not if it seems usless/dangerous.

I then websearched my name and my town to see what I could find.

Q. What did you find?

A. I found out that I am in the paper... a lot. Sports stuff, honor roll, and random things from when I was little. I was also apparently in some ads for my school when I was like five.

Q. How many footprints are you leaving behind?

A. I'm not sure. Probably a lot. A lot of times when you're little, people say that your parents can start the footprints for you, but my parents aren't online very often, and I'm not sure if they even had a computer when I was born, so I'm almost positive that they wern't posting baby pictures online. :)

 What about you? Do you have a Facebook? What sites have you joined? Are you careful about how much info you give your viewers? Search Yourself, and try to answer the following questions in a comment please :)

My Blog in Review...

This week for the Student Blogging Challenge, I am going over this past history of my blog. I've written some funny things:
I've written some interesting things

I've also written the straight facts.
  • Another Recount?
    Of course though, if am going to recommend a post to you, it has to be my favorite post of all time All Because of a Cookie. It is the interesting story of me, my mom, and my grandma, trapped in a car behind an accident in a blizzard coming back from the Mall of America, all because of a cookie. If you are going to take time out of your day to read it though, you should really read Hooky first, and the read She Still Gets That Cookie. Confusing? Good.

Do you have any interesting posts that you've written? Any interesting shopping trips with your grandmothers? :) Comment letting me know what posts you have that i should read, and why I should read them...

Doodle 4 Google

            Last week, our teacher decided that we are going to enter the Doodle for Google contest. You design a logo for Google following the theme, " What I'd like to do someday..." We saw the winners from past years, and they got to go to the Google Studio in New York. They also won a college scholarship a graphic design tablet and a laptop computer. I really want to to win... but I'm not going to get my hopes up. I think being in this contest will be a great experience.

Hello My Name is ______ and I'm a Shopaholic.

Photo By: zoenet
          This week in 21st Century, We are learning about spending money. That is something I like to do. Unfortunately, a lot. There are two kinds of people in this world, spenders or savers, and I think we all know what category I'm in. We went to the U.S. mint website, and played some games and took quizzes on spending money. Go to tips for teens, and try the Spending Challenge. It was a challenge for me alright. You're supposed to see how much money you have left after a certain amount of weeks. I think I went into the negatives. I took the Money Quiz, and got Spender. Like I didn't already know that. H\ello, My name is Hannah, and I am a shopaholic.
