Winter Games Progress Report #4

As I came home late from work tonight, I didn't get as much done as I hoped. I was hoping to get more sources done, but that didn't pan out.

Here is my progress report so far for the categories I am participating in:

1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources!

So far have only inputted 5 sources.

Results: No medals here yet, but still anticipating at least a Silver.

2. Back Up Your Data!

Haven't started on this one yet.

Results: No medals yet, but hope to achieve at least a Bronze.

3. Organize Your Research!

Task E - Create at least 20 data entries in your database.
Completed on Feb. 16th.

In order to create a timeline, I actually had to enter the information that I had! While I was at it I entered information for three other individuals. Ended up creating 21 data entries.

Results: 1 Bronze Medal (my goal is a Diamond)

4. Expand Your Knowledge!

  1. You are coming along. I had to work the weekend and was waaay behind. Today I had off and killed myself....lol

  2. Thanks Linda. I'm just about killing myself too. I haven't done this much posting since I started this blog. I'm having a great time though and it's helping me to work on my New Year's resolution which is to blog more - and get those darn sources entered!!!
