I have had an account with del.icio.us for a long time; a couple of years or so. Typically, I very rarely use it. I would import all of my Firefox bookmarks into it, and then forget about it for a while. I would come back a few months, or a year later, and realize that the entire thing was different than my bookmarks currently were.
Interestingly enough, del.icio.us does not give users the ability to delete all of the bookmarks at once. So, to avoid having to go through over 1,000 deletions manually, I would just delete the account and start it over again with the same username.
The other day, I decided to start over again. But this time, I intend to use it to store things that are of interest to me on a daily basis. For example, the presidential typography article. Good blog posts, inspirational designs, interesting news, and so on. You can see my del.icio.us bookmarks.
Each day, at least for now, I will have the links of the day posted automatically. If there is any interest in this, or if I find it enjoyable, I’ll keep doing it.
