Tuesday Thinger: A Huge Thank You to Marie and How Familiar Are You With LT?

A quick note before we get to today's question. I would like to personally thank Marie (Boston Bibliophile) for starting this wonderful meme and allowing me to continue it as she has stepped down from hosting it. She has been very helpful to new bloggers, and has helped us all to learn new things about Library Thing. In an effort to say a proper thank you, I decided that I wanted to know a little more abour Marie. I asked her how Tuesday Thingers started and what her favorite part of LT is, and she explained that it all started on the message boards of Library Thing as a way for book bloggers to connect . . . and to learn a little about Library Thing!! She also shared with me that the cataloging is her favorite part of LT (which I must admit is one of mine - it is so nice and easy to keep track of books there!) because of the way it allows the user to organize (tagging).


Marie - I'd like to extend a huge thank you for your hard work and willingness to share your interest with us, and to start this wonderful group! You've done a great job of getting this group going (and growing it!)and coming up with topics for the past 31 weeks! You have helped to create a very nice network of bloggers that I hope will continue to grow!

As Tuesday Thingers now has a new home, I'd like to welcome you, and I'm going to ask you for a little forgiveness. I have not participated in all of the Thingers in the past, so may repost a question that some of you have already seen/answered. Just look at a few of the questions as refreshers and especially helpful to newer members of Library Thing. If you would like to help me come up with some questions, please send me an email at wbarker at hotmail.com.

Today's question: Here is a list of the main areas of Library Thing:
1. Home (http://www.librarything.com/, before you log in)
2. Home (once you log in, contains Your Home, Your Profile, Connections, Recommendations, Reviews, Statistics, Clouds, Gallery, Memes)
3. Profile (Recent activity, tags, comments, members with your books)
4. Your Library
5. Your Tags
6. Add Books
7. Talk
8. Groups
9. Local
10. Search
11. Zeitgeist (Stats, Top Lists)
12. Tools (Widgets, Store)
13. Blog

What area are you most familiar with? What area is your favorite? What area are you curious about? Are there any that you have not really looked at?

I'm going to use the answers to help generate some topics for future posts.

My Answer: As for what I'm most familiar with, I'd have to go with the Groups page (there are some great forums) and the Add Books page. I use both pages to get information and update my books/reviews.

What is my favorite? I'd say the same two, more so in the groups as you can interact with people a little more there and see what is going on at other's blogs.

I'm curious about the Profile page. I haven't really explored it much, so know I'm probably missing a bunch of great things like . . . . friends! I found a few of you the other day when I realized I had two friends - feel free to let me know your name so I can friend you, or you can leave me a comment and I'll add you to my friends!

As for the areas I haven't really looked at: Can I start a list here - just kidding, but I've never looked at the blog until today!
