MMMMmmm Yummy Bookmarks

I am a big fan of bookmarks. I have them all over the house and they consist of everything from (unused) Kleenex to bill envelopes to sticky notes to pens. So naturally I was excited to use them on my computer!

I played around with it and bookmarked sites I visit frequently such as BPL and OPL and my work related sites such as the absence reporter, library page and workshop listing. I used simple tags such as libraries and work stuff. I did look at several interesting sites under "popular tags" such as humour and photography but didn't find anything I wanted to bookmark.

The idea of is a great one. So great, in fact, that I have already got similar function on my computer already. I don't think that I will continue to use, but not because there is anything wrong with it. It is instead a repeat of what I already have with my favorites list (I use folders to "tag" similar items). Had I found it first, I may have preferred it.

  1. One of (many) pet peeves: the volume of paper bookmarks the library receives as publicity for inane things. Ugh. So annoying. Last year we received well over 5000 GG bookmarks. Really? REALLY? What am I going to do with 5000 GG bookmarks, besides build a cool little fort in the 900s?
