Ma.gnolia social bookmarking

I’ve been using del.icio.us since last April, but really sporadically, typically only posting things as reminders to myself, which I’ll see in my RSS reader later. But recently I decided to make an effort to both use it more often, and to write better descriptions of the things I do post there. The plan ultimately called for integrating this information into my own site in some way.

Right after deciding this, I discovered and signed up for a beta account with Ma.gnolia, who opened to the public just a few days later. Ma.gnolia is similar to del.icio.us, but with the addition of contact lists and groups. It’s also a hell of a lot easier on the eyes. It can import bookmarks from similar services, including del.icio.us, so I’ve moved everything over and will be using this one now.

I think there’s a lot of value in systems like this so, like I said, I’m going to try to remember to use it regularly. Not only to post URLs, but also to look at what other people are posting, which is something I rarely do now.
