Google Sites is a great place to create an online portfolio. My portfolio address is sites.google.com/coachchristophermellor. I will definitely use this online service to create, update and share my on line portfolio as needed. I also recommend this technology to anyone interested in creating an online portfolio.

I recently did some exploring of online hosting sites for professional portfolios. I explored www.linkedin.com and www.plaxo.com. Both sites are very user friendly and both sites offer a social and professional avenue to an online portfolio. LinkedIn seem to appear like it catered to professionals while Plaxo had a more modern appearance that appeared to cater both to a professional and a social audience. I personally still like a personal web page. With a personal web page I have the ability to customize it any way I see fit. With all the on line tools and applications A personal web page has the potential to be very professional.

Had a great time at www.imagegenerator.org . That website provides users with hundreds of links to differnt kinds of image generators. I had a chance to explored several image generator sites. I played around with several pictures. My family joined me and we had a great time together playing on this site. It is amazing what you can do on the computer nowadays. I had fun manipulating words and images. My kid's got a kick out of putting our faces on another persons body. Cool web site

I enjoyed Librarything. This is a great place to search, organize and maintain an online catalog of books that you may be interested in. I started organizing and tgging some football books. Librarything is a great place to see what other people interested in the samesubject matter are reading. I thought this site was pretty cool. My link to my Librarything account is www.librarything.com/catalog/coachchris. Check out some of my books and feel free to make any suggestions.

I enjoyed browsing through two different podcast directories, www.podcast.com and www.podcastalley.com. These two sites are user friendly and offer countless podcast to search from. I searched for a variety of topics and found an abundance of information to research and explore. I attached several strength and speed podcast to my blog page. This was very easy to do and I will definately use this feature with future post's.
I think YouTube is a great tool for the whole world. From educational settings to recreational use. I found YouTube to work in harmony with my blog. Being able to have a quick easy video at one's fingertips to back up a thought is a great addition to any blog. I use You Tube on a regular basis and I highly recommend it to anyone surfing the web. I attached a few guitar lesson videos from YouTube that i have been following for a while now.

This was a very interesting site. You can find blogs about everything and anything at technorati.com.I can see this site really good for a person that likes to read other peoples opinion's. Information junkies probably would be in heaven on this site as well. I found myself exploring Technorati for about an hour before I got a little tired of it. I have had a major dose of current technology over the past few weeks and it's begining to get a little bit like alphabet soup. The exposure is good, it's nice to have a heads up on what's going on out there.
