I understand social bookmarking and agree that it can be quite useful but I have never been able to get into it. I currently have accounts with Delicious, Diigo, LiveBinders and now Evernote. But other than using bookmarking sites the day I first created an account, I have never gone back to them. I don’t know why because I am frequently doing a search on Google looking for something that I found months ago but forgot to add it to my favorites.
Evernote was easy to create an account and I especially liked that there was a clipper available for Google Chrome, which is often overlooked. I have even downloaded the app for the iPad. I am not really a list maker and I think that is the part of Evernote that is the most appealing to me. I can see how it would be useful to clip pictures of bulletin boards or greeting cards that I would like to use in the future.
I consider myself to be an internet lurker — I tend to read a lot but very rarely post or add to the discussion. I find that I do this on Facebook and the different blogs that I frequently read. I find the social aspect to be “worrisome” (not sure that is the right word). Not sure why. Maybe it is from bad experiences or shyness. This is definitely something I will need to work on in the future.
I’ll have to wait and see if I actually stick with Evernote or neglect it as I have the others. In case you are interested, here is the “to-do” list I created on Evernote:
