Tumblr

Do you Tumble? After having an out-of-control bookmark list in Firefox, I finally started a Tumblr account and I'm in love!

Tumblr has a "bookmarklet" (listed under "goodies" on your dashboard) that you can click and drag to your tool bar. Now when I read a blog article or magazine article that I like, I click on my "Share on Tumblr" button and post the article to my Tumblr account. It pops up a little window that lets me choose the type of link (I usually choose to post it as a photo) and put some tags on the link...and that's it! So easy!
Want to check out my tumblr page? It is http://frillsfluffandtrucks.tumblr.com/ and still needs some prettying up--but it is functioning really well for me.

Do you Tumble? Post your page--I'd love to check it out!

By the way--make sure to sign up for my 200th post giveaway!

No - I've never! I will have to check it out. I've been using safari, but perhaps i'll switch back to FF...

umm, I don;'t get it :) So, your long list appears as a web page instead that you have to scroll through to find what you want? I think I like the list better. waht is wrong with me? :)

No, much easier than a big list--you can "tag" the things you put in there and then search by tag topics. So quick and easy!
