This post serves two purposes:
Well for the most part.
I can see someone asking me which site to use for their blogging needs. The answer is “it depends.”
I have been using Tumblr a bit longer than Posterous, but not by much.
With Posterous, I have been able for the most part, to post to other sites including this blog (within the Posterous inferface, not by email, sigh.), my TypePad blog , the college one, as well as Facebook and Twitter.
However, with the Tumblr one (known for microblogging), I’ve been pulling from my other non-work related blogs as well as finding non-work related links and posting them there. Of course, Tumblr also had the option to post to Twitter and Facebook.
Are you using, Posterous, Tumblr or both like I am? If so, how are you using them?
Update: 3/30/11 – Trunk.ly did a post of how to do this directly.
We just talked about Trunk.ly, so of course I had to figure out how to share links from Google Reader to Trunk.ly.
The icon url can be found on the Trunk.ly tools page
and this is the URL for the share function:
We are continuing to find options in lieu of the Delicious news. Trunk.ly simply takes all the links across your social networks, catalogs them and makes them searchable.
In terms of functionality, Trunk.ly is most similar to Delicious in terms of saving, tagging and commenting on links. The sweet spot is the social media hookup.
I was first introduced to Trunk.ly via twitter. So after a while, I finally tried it out over the past week.
I admit, its nice to tweet and forget it until you need it.
We all know about what may or may not happen to Delicious.
In the meantime, I have been using Licorize for a few months now. I admit, what drawn me to is the ability to make bookmarks into actionable tasks and projects.
I had successfully imported nearly 6,000 (yes 6 thousand) booksmarks into Licorize, but I know I also had some starred items in Google Reader.
In the past, I had the “send to” button for a post to got to my Delicious account.
So I went to Licorize’s FAQ and entered in “Google Reader” and there I found the FAQ that answered my query.
I implemented the solution, but then still something was amiss.
The title wasn’t included when I selected “Send to Licorize”.
Therefore, I put on my web analytics hat on and saw that the title variable was needed.
See my solution on the Licorize FAQ site.
I am reflecting on this year & manifesting what’s next. Join me and 3,000 bloggers, tweeters, tumblers, etc. at reverb10.com to share your story.
December 17 – Lesson Learned What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? (Author: Tara Weaver)
Nothing like the weekend to catch up and/or get ahead on blog posts.
I learned to finally come out of my shell and speak up. Some folks hate me for for it. Others are wondering what took me so long.
Simply put, I was tired of always taking a back seat and sitting on the sidelines, especially if something doesn’t sit right with me, or if I can offer a better option.
How are you magnifying or amplifying your voice?
Its not often when two of my worlds collide. I could not help but to bring this story to light.
A few years before he passed away my Grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease – a disease that affects more than 26.6 million people every year (more than 1 in 100 people).

The last time we looked at bookmarks, we were examining different options for organizing bookmarks. I happened to stumble upon a post from Web Worker Daily talking about a new bookmark site called Licorize.
So I signed up for an account and I went exploring. In my del.icio.us account, there were some bookmarks I labeled “todo” and “toread”. Licorize has an option to import your del.icio.us bookmarks that have a certain tag.
I have already read I handful of items from my to read list within the first hour or so of importing.
In addition, you can also organize your items into “Projects” which is also helpful to stay focused.
Have you tried out Licorize? Let me know.
