New software to learn and lessons to plan

I visited 3 cool websites today that I want to share.
The first is the Savvy Intern’s post on what new software you should know. Obviously I am not an intern, but I found the article well written and a friendly reminder that I need to keep my skills updated.
The second website was the blog – The Blooming Palette. It is filled with cool lesson plans and nice wayst to pitch them to your students. I like how she goes into depth and introduces some of the conceptual things we need to think about when making an artwork.
Last is Randleman High School’s website and a very cool lesson on resist watercolor painting using rubber cement. Now if only I had gallons of the stuff I would do that too!

Feed Validator

I found a great website: http://www.feedvalidator.org  I looked up all 3 of my blogs and found that two of them are fine and one isn’t for some odd reason. valid-rss

I had a brain-fart while I was changing Sammie’s diaper just now. Why don’t I just delete that social widget that has the rss link and see if that’s the reason. And another thought, who is going to subscribe to the RSS feed where I am selling my house? I think they will just visit the pictures and leave right? It’s not like my blogs are high traffic ones right?

I know some people say they don’t read blogs anymore by visiting but instead keep up with their friends blogs through rss readers (I use google’s) but I like looking at the pretty pictures people post sometimes. I like the “feel” of the blog. Call me old school – a digital immigrant.
