I saw del.icio.us when it first came out. I was little impressed. My thoughts: “Hmm. Looks like blink.com…”
Now, after I’ve become a little wiser and del.icio.us has had some mainstream press and quality competition, I finally decided to take a dive at del.icio.us. And I’m buying the hype! This is a really cool service.
My del.icio.us account lets me sort by category, called “tags”. It also lets me see what other links del.icio.us users posted to that tag. If I post a link that others have also posted, it lets me see how many people bookmarked that page. If enough people bookmark a page, it may get “voted” to the front page of del.icio.us. That is a lot of potential in the hands of its users!
Each day I use del.icio.us more and more. I’m finding new uses and tricks for it each day. Del.icio.us is becoming almost a part of my life as blogging is (well, my other blogs at least).
