Bookmarks Are Your Friends!

I use Bookmarks (also known as Favorites) a ton. As someone who is online for both work and leisure, I can't even begin to list all the sites I have bookmarked -- though I'm guessing it's hundreds.

No, I do not rely on the 'History' of my browser Address area to keep track of sites I frequently visit. To me, that's what Bookmarks are for. I have my Bookmarks very neatly organized in numerous folders, so that I can easily located them. And I have a tendency to take my Bookmark file to the office every now and then, so that it's matched up with what I use here at home.

Frankly, I don't even log in here at LiveJournal without going to my Bookmarks and locating the login page! (smile)

Recently I've been cleaning them out quite a bit. Because I tend to be constantly adding to my Bookmarks, they can get to the point where they're a bit out of control (nice, neat folders aside). As I go through them and 'test' to see if each one is still active, I'm frequently surprised by all the websites that are no longer there. (sigh) I guess it's just another reason for 'housecleaning' where Bookmarks are concerned!

Marilyn mistressmarilyn needs to clean up her own Bookmarks on her desktop computer here at home -- then I'll be able to transfer them to her new laptop (and to her work computer), so she has the same ones everywhere...

Anyway, I'm proud of all the work I've put into cleaning out (and cleaning up) my Bookmarks.

Bookmarks are a very good thing!
