The post about how awesome iGoogle is

I just have two words for you....iGoogle.

Have you discovered iGoogle yet??? I recently did and it is (singing) aaaaawe-some!

I could have discovered it long ago, since my uber-techy husband claims that he tried to show it to me a long while ago and I wasn't interested. He's prolly telling the truth because when it comes to technology (and other things in my life) I am easily overwhelmed and I very well may have closed my eyes and ears and rudely announced politely declined "don't introduce me to one more smidge of information that I don't absolutely need or my head might asplode."

Nevertheless, I have now discovered it and it is soooo fun! You know how the regular Google page is just white? Well, on iGoogle you can customize the page and add all kinds of things to it that you want to see everyday. Like on mine I have a daily bible verse, a daily quote from Beth Moore, funny kid sayings (I could submit some for that). I have the date and time and a calendar, which comes in very handy on the days when I don't know what's going on.

I also have a "To Do" list that I can add things to, cross things off, and even print out. And it looks like a yellow pad of paper - cute! I have a list of the movies currently playing at our local theater, weather (both here and in California so that in December I will be able to see how nice and warm it is where my sister lives. Whatever.) I have news headlines so that I know what is going on in the world...which I desperately need as evidenced by this pre-Vince blog post. And of course the coolest of all...daily Napoleon Dynamite quotes. Yessssss!

You can search for absolutely anything you are interested in and have some type of feed thingy added to your page. You can also add a (since I don't know what it's called, I'll call it a decorative banner) across the top of the page where the "Google Search" box is. Mine is piano keys.

iGoogle....check it out! Doesn't it sound like alot of nerdy fun?!! I'm not sure why it makes me so happy, it just does.

  1. Wow, I never knew that. Thanks for letting me know :))

  2. Lisa, you sound so happy, and it is infectious. I will have to check it out. Thanks for the info.


  3. I agree - very cool. I also like Google Chrome.

  4. LOL, the things that make us happy :) I'll have to try and customize mine. I wasn't aware of all it could do.

  5. Yes, I totally LOVE iGoogle. And have you used the Google Calendar yet? You would love it with your busy schedule!
