            On the left side of the page, click on the notebook icon (depicted below) to access your webmix menu: 

            Upon opening your webmix menu, you will see a list of your workspaces along with the webmixes within each workspace. In the image below, you'll see the D87 webmix under the My Symbaloo workspace, while there are no webmixes published to the District87 PRO workspace

            My Symbaloo: The blue section at the top titled My Symbaloo shows the webmixes within your personal workspace.
