I have tried several times to tame the multi-headed monster, commonly referred to “bookmarks” … The one sort of like the monsters we suspect live under our beds: Scarier in our mind than reality; not really a monster at all. Well, I will agree, in part, with that …
The massive amount of information available on the Internet is fascinating, additive and well, massive! Although bookmarks are best used when organized, organization doesn’t come easy to right brain thinkers. I mean where in the world do you begin? What is your reference point? Would WordPress themes be filed under blogging or design? Or would I list “design” in a file labeled “blogging”??
After all, I have enough of a challenge determining my weekly plan by days of the week!
So, I have been working on some sort of system to wrangle in the massive collection of bookmarks I have thus far. This has become a priority since I will soon be reformatting my hard drive (in hopes of ridding it of a bad case of the quirks!).
While there are 1,010,000 “results” for how to organize bookmarks, I have yet to read one that proposes possible file names and systems of organization.
It is commonly recommended that you determine what your interests are with regard to the types of sites you visit. Hel-lo!? That list is as long and disorganized as my bookmarks!
delicious.com comes highly recommend. However, right away it is apparent that this could be yet another form of organization-torture (as well as a place to get lost-in-links!). However, I will persevere! Should you you decide to pursue this, dear reader, I recommend starting with the Delicious FireFox extension.
