In the old days, I used to love storing my bookmarks on Delicious. The service worked great to sync my bookmarks on different computers at work and home. More importantly, Delicious allowed users to share stacks of bookmarks with their friends.
I used to explore and find countless beautiful and useful websites this way. Then Delicious tanked.
I still use Chrome’s bookmark manager for some links I need to look up often but I like a lot of things online which I want to be able to recall in a easy manner later but not necessarily have them on my browser. I also use Pocket but not exactly very extensively.
So now I have started saving interesting things I come across the web on a free WordPress.com website.
bombaypirate.wordpress.com it is.
I find it really convenient for the following reason
- My bookmarks can have some context, are searchable and indexed.
- It can be opened on any browser – no need to sign up or sync up.
- It can be opened on any phone screen.
- Someone could share something interesting in comments and suggest more awesome links to visit.
Where do you collect all the awesome stuff you come across on the web? Any single place sharable? Let me know in comments.
