I've opened a Delicious account
. I did it out of sheer practicality, since I've gotten a second computer and suddenly needed to find a way to merge bookmarks without tearing my hair out. I've been hearing about Delicious (also, grateful that they changed the site address) for years but never took the time to figure out how it worked. I *still* don't know a lot about how the social aspect works, but the bookmark tagging is completely awesome and I've been experimenting with bookmarking and tagging the Torchwood stories I have saved.
So far, I've tagged around seventy stories, most of them recs. I've poked around enough to know a bit about the tagging conventions, but I'm wondering if I'm making egregious mistakes. My intent is to have my story bookmarks be functional to others as a search and rec list, so I'm a bit worried that I'm doing something weird that will make my bookmarks fall through the general tag-search cracks.
In fact, if those of you who use Delicious have a moment, I'd really appreciate some seasoned tagging/searching hands looking over my bookmarks
and letting me know if I'm doing things that will confuse or annoy potential searchers. I'd rather find out now when I've got seventy stories to be fixed than after I've (potentially) tagged a thousand.
My goal is to, at least, tag the stories that I've flagged in my folders as being notable, and if I'm still crazy enough I'll try to tag the rest of my stories, too. But that's 1,500 in my Torchwood folder alone, so I'm not holding my breath. So, if you're interested, please feel free to subscribe to my tags. I'm focusing on getting older stories up right now, but I'm also trying to add notable new stories as they come along.
