6 ways to fall in love with browser’s bookmark again

6 ways to fall in love with browser’s bookmark again

Since I’ve started to use del.icio.us, I stopped to use my browser’s bookmark for a while. I love the online bookmarking tool because it gives me access on all of my links from any computers (at work or home) without doing any syncing – and I didn’t find a reason to continue using local bookmark anymore. Recently I thought of ways to utilize the browser’s bookmark system again, and I think those are pretty good ways to speed up my browsing experience.

  • Store the online bookmarking URL. This is obvious – it gives me a quick way to access my actual bookmark.
  • Store the daily visits. I remember all URLs on my daily visits by heart, but keeping those on my bookmark toolbar can give me the access immediately.
  • Keep all “Write Post” URLs on my various blogs. Quick access for me to write should I have any quick ideas for my blogs.
  • Keep still-to-sort sites. I do not want to pollute my online bookmarks with stuff that I will not reference later, so I will keep them into a “sorting” folder first if I am unsure.
  • Keep URLs for short-term. Similar to the reason above, I use the local bookmark to store those URL and remove them when it is not required.
  • Things that are irrelevant to others – no point to put those into my online bookmark if other people cannot utilize it – things such as web site stat pages and admin pages etc.

And I admit, I fall in love with my local bookmark once again. How do you use your browser’s bookmark on-top of your online bookmarks?

The Lifehack Show Episode 6: On Friendship and Belonging

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kyler Shumway, Doctor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Friendship Formula: How to Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection. In his earlier years, Dr. Shumway was a target of bullying; he also found himself plagued with social anxiety, which he still battles today, yet also uses as an empowering guide to help others overcome social anxiety and form solid, lasting friendships within their own lives.

Dr. Shumway is an advocate for friendship and believes that: “… together, we can bring an end to the bullying problem by breaking the chain of suffering, daring to be different, and creating a world where everyone belongs.”
