Thing #10 Got Bookmarks?

Recommending websites isn’t new for any of us, right? We have all passed along a URL to someone with reasons why they should check it out, whether it was a funny YouTube video or a fantastically helpful resource for research. But when you work as an information provider, the number of URLs shared in a day far surpasses what most people share in a week’s time. For this reason, using a social bookmarking site like Delicious makes perfect sense. It allows us to collect, condense, and collaborate at the same time, which ultimately saves time.
