Read your feed at Gmail

I have been playing with a few feeds readers and I am quite interested in trying out to set my Gmail account as a reader.

As I am working at different libraries, in order for the librarians to plan ahead, I am looking for a fastest way to notify the branch librarians on my weekly timetable.

Say, if they subscribed to my feed at RSSCalendar, each time when I am booked for another library or when they want to find out which day I am available, they just have to log in to their email, simple as that.

But, some would say, why not they just give me a call, just like what we are doing, which is so much faster and easier.
BARBARA BOVA: Writing and marriage take ego, patience, persistence
Modesto Bee: Books: "(SH) - I married a professional writer. That means I live with a man whomakes his living writing. When I married him, he was already awell-known author with many books to his credit. I was looking forwardto a life of glamour and ease. We would go interesting places and meetfascinating and famous people. We would attend wonderful cocktailparties surrounded by other sophisticated and amusing, talentedartists. There would be some suffering, of course. I had read aboutSylvia Plath and how painful her life was. But even that reeked of acertain kind of glamour. Since my husband did his writing at home, Iwas pleased to think that he would be accessible to me all the time."

I am trying for it allows blogging features (30 free trial).

Getting ready

Why do people blog? In fact why do I blog? Why do I 'hide' my personal domain with moveable type and start afresh at Blogger? What is blog actually, what is the value of blog, what is my role as a blogger?

I wish I have a clue, just look at all the papers I've gathered, and yes, I am all getting ready to submit my first paper for the Transforming Information and Learning Conference.

I hope.
