A number of fellow loafers at the marina showed interest in using the tab that I have created within iGoogle to gather together items of interest for sailing. If you havent yet created an iGoogle page of your own I highly recommend doing so – have a look at this video to see how easy it is.
After you create your iGoogle page then you can create “tabs” which house different collections of widgets. For example I have a “tab” called “Local” where I see all the local entertainment and news. Similarly I have created a tab called “Sailing” see screenshot below.
Why bother? – well if this is your default home page then you have in one place almost all the info you want from tides, to hurricane warnings, to news to weather info and of course links to your favourite blogs and web sites. The service is free and there are no adverts…
If you are interested in which widgets to add I would be happy to “share” the sailing tab that I have created just use the contact form to request the tab – once you have downloaded it it is entirely yours with no connection to me:-)
