Listening to Entrepreneur on Fire I am always directed to various online resources. Some incredible, some okay. One of the sites leaning more to the incredible side of the scale is delicious.com (mmmmmm…..)
links. Links. LINKS!
When you come across a fascinating article you naturally want to share it with any of your friends you think would be remotely interested. Sure you could share it on Facebook but to be honest your feed and everyone else’s is already cluttered up, and truthfully most of them won’t read it.
Even then, sometimes you come across something you want to save for yourself but it’s just not bookmark worthy. You may have a word document or something with the link in, or you could save it as a draft on your phone. Either way you want to be able to keep it and come back to it somehow.
It allows you to save links and share them from anywhere. And if you tag them it makes it easier for you to 1. search for them in the future and 2. find articles on similar topics. Either way it is superb and I love it.
It’s no secret I that I spend far too much of my time online but every now and then (realistically about ten times a day) I come across websites that make me so excited. While exploring something or other some days ago I came across about.me
It does what it says in the name, it’s your own personal about me page that you can use to link to all your social media accounts, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, ect. It’s “your personal homepage”.
People have used it as an online CV, a way to market themselves, a homepage and just a central point of contact.
I really love the idea and think the concept behind it is fantastic, and while I’m a bit late to the game (it was founded in 2009), I will definitely be spending several hours on this site.
