400 Del.icio.us bookmarks and counting

| tools | 2 Comments

Last week I hit 400 bookmarks in my Del.icio.us account. For anyone who doesn’t know, Del.icio.us is an online bookmark managing site. I know that sounds really boring and you are thinking why would I possibly need that? But it has absolutely changed the way I work and I would have to say that it is one of the best and most useful web application I have come across so far.

Why use Del.icio.us?

Del.icio.us is perfect for anyone who either:
a) wants a way to access all their bookmarks from any computer
b) has a lot of bookmarks and wants a way to organise them
c) is interested in seeing what other people are bookmarking
d) wants to share their bookmarks with other people (optional)

I not only use del.icio.us to bookmark sites that I like, but also for sites that I have stumbled across and don’t have the time to read straight away. I simply tag these pages as ‘todo’ and then when I have time I can filter my list of bookmarks by the tag ‘todo’ and voila hours of entertainment.

Rumor is that version 2 will be released soon and from what I have seen it looks good.

So if you aren’t already using del.icio.us check it out at: http://del.icio.us and see if it is useful for you. Oh and don’t forget to get the firefox plugin so you can easily tag and store any page you come across quickly and easily.

Updates to site

| tools | No Comments

Hi everyone. Just a quick update on a couple of changes I am making to this site. Today I have started using FeedBurner to monitor my site feeds. So if you have already signed up for the old feed, please signup for the new feed instead. For anyone not familiar with RSS and feeds, I will be posting an article on this in the upcoming weeks.

I am in the process of officially adding this blog to technorati, you can check out my Technorati Profile.

I have taken down the gravatars for now, as they didn’t seem to be showing up. If anyone knows the solution to this problem, please let me know and I can put them back up.

I have also added a small Google AdWords banner at the bottom of my posts. I wasn’t going to add advertising to this site (not for a while anyway) as I wanted to keep the clean look and stray away from the advertising scene for now, but there are bills to be paid and I need all the help I can get. If anyone really hates it, please let me know and I can move/remove it.

The last couple of days has been a bit of a whirlwind with lots of nice feedback on my gtd project as well as potentially scoring a new client. I am going to try really hard to put up some more info on the gtd project this weekend, so please stay tuned.

A big thank you to everyone for their support, you guys rock!!!
