This past week, I’ve experimented with the “daily blog posting” option of del.icio.us:
I have my del.icio.us account set to auto-post my publicly shared social bookmarks at 0800 GMT each day, which should be 3 am US Central time. (For some reason it works out to be about 3:30 am US Central.) You can view examples of link posts from this past week here, here, here and here. I know a few other bloggers who have integrated this auto-blogging feature into their blogs for quite awhile. I had wondered how they did this, and am just now getting around to exploring this option/ability.
What is your opinion of having these link lists auto-posted as blog entries? Is this helpful? Distracting? Unnecessary? Great?
I am planning to start exploring diigo in earnest in the next week or so, since I understand (in a very shallow way at this point) that diigo permits cross-posting / saving of bookmarks to del.icio.us but also offers additional great functionality. I’ve saved a few posts and presentations about diigo to del.icio.us/wfryer/diigo which I plan to review soon.
At this point I’m convinced I need to investigate and explore diigo… Here, however, I’m really interested to know what others think of auto-blogged social bookmark lists. Opinions?
