Surfin’ the web

If you visit my blog, you’ll notice a new page, Surfin’ the Web (if you view this blog via a reader, well, come visit!). I’m trying out a new way to keep track of my bookmarks. I’m sure you’ve heard of Del.ici.ous, the social bookmarking site. It’s a really cool way to access your bookmarks from any computer that’s connected to the internet. I’m sharing my links with you, and so are other people. Anyone who uses the tag “crazyquilts” is included in the feed on my Netvibes public page, in the upper right hand corner of the page.

If you’d like to join in, and add sites too, sign up for a Del.ici.ous account, and start adding links. You can put a bookmarklet button on your browser, making it super easy to add links. If you network with me, you can see all my bookmarks-even more sharing! But… If you’re a little unsure of using Del.ici.ous, you can always leave me a comment on this page, and ask me to add your link. And please, if you have a cool blog or website, tell me about it so I can add it!

The list below contains links to my Netvibes tabs; I think the names are self explanatory. Each Netvibe tab also has a list of my Del.ici.ous tags. You can select a tag, and go to my Del.ici.ous links associated with that tag. If you click on a link in one of the feeds, a new page for that link will open.

Let me know what you think of this. It’s an experiment at this point, and I might go back to having links on the blog (yes, they’re all still there as of now! but that’ll be changing soon… verrrry sooonnn…). It’s just that I’ve found it so easy to use Del.ici.ous; no more copy/paste stuff, my link list on Netvibes is updated without any effort at all, and I can see tons more links as well. What’s not to like??

  1. Hi! I don’t have time to set up on Del.ici.ous today, but I have a couple of links for you: Pat Winter, Gatherings and her blog: http://www.patwintergatherings.com/ and
    http://gatherings100.blogspot.com/ and CQ Mag online: http://cqmagonline.com/index.htm

    Thanks Marjorie!
    I’ve added all three to the crazyquilts category, as well as your blog. I appreciate your input!

  2. Hi Edie, I searched everywhere for an email addy but couldn’t find one so I thought I’d post here. Found you on Stitchin Fingers, Surf the Web post in the forum. How does this social networking work? I understand what you wrote about Del.ici.ous , I am curious about things like adding our blog links to places that will help drive more traffic to our sites. Can you share information about that?
    Also…could you meanwhile, add my blog link to your list? http://www.curiosities808.wordpress.com It’s an embroidery blog. Thanks…smiles, alicia in Hawaii

    Hi Alicia,
    yeah, no email address; trying to avoid the spammers 🙂 If you go to my blog page, https://cowgirl53.wordpress.com/surfin-the-web/ there’s a longer explanation of del.ici.ous and links to everything as well.
    And I’ll add your blog! thanks!
