Use Blinklist to access and share your bookmarks from anywhere

Chances are high that you also bookmark your favorite web sites so that you can quickly reference them again. In teaching, I have stocked up on hundreds of web sites that I have found useful in staying current in the graphics industry. One challenge for me has been the fact that in teaching web design I often find myself using multiple web browsers and juggling seats behind multiple computers from my laptop to computers in the lab. Sure there are multiple methods for exporting bookmarks to use in other web browsers and computers, but seriously who has time to keep up with that? Besides, once you’ve added several hundred bookmarks it’s a nightmare to manage and keep track of. This is where Blinklist has become a great resource for me, a good enough one that I felt it was worth informing you all of this bookmarking tool.

So what’s Blinklist? This online application allows you to add your favorite web sites, references, and resources to save for future reference. You can then access your bookmarks from anywhere! Another appealing feature is that it allows you to share your bookmarks with others. You are able to see how many others have “blinked” the same site. You can also rate the sites you add. You’re able to add tags to each link so that you can quickly refer to other sites that are similar – which is perfect for organizational people such as myself. Now of course you could also read about how others are using Blinklist.

I’ve imported many of my bookmarks and I’ll be updating this list to share with you all in my Blinklist.

    It is somewhat like I have never used, but I've heard a lot about it. It just seems like blinklist is a bit more userfriendly to me. It also has a nice bookmark for firefox that you can use to quickly save your favorite sites to your list. That way when you run across a site you just choose to "blink this site" from your bookmark tabs and like magic it's added. If you have text from the site selected it adds that as the description.

    I think this is a brilliant idea, but they have a long way to go in execution. To my (admittedly minimalist eye), it would be more effective if it was a two column grid with categories on one side, and subsequent links on the other (similar to how this blog is set up). So saying, the sheer fact that I have access to more information is enjoyable!

    Thanks for mentioning BlinkList. Since you are teaching, have you had a chance to check out BlinkList Spaces? We are developing it with the education market in mind to create a great place to share resources for a shared learning environment. We have a lot more work to do but I would love to hear your thoughts on our BlinkList Spaces if you have a chance to check them out. mike
