Its no secret I’m in love with Flock. Right now, Flock supports two online bookmarking sites, del.icio.us and Shadows. I’ve been a del.icio.us for about a year and while its essential to me, the fact is del.icio.us doesn’t have the flare of many newer web 2.0 sites. After finally getting curious enough to check out Shadows, I was liking what I was seeing.
First problem is how to get all my del.icio.us bookmarks into Shadows. Lo and behold that have a importer just for del.icio.us. I’ve used importers on sites like Blinklist without a problem but not this time. 36 hours, 2 emails and 54 manual entries I finally had all my bookmarks over. Now was time to switch in Flock which was the easiest part as its just goto Accounts and use Switch Services under Bookmarks. Painless. Did i mention how much I love Flock?
That was all about a week ago. Tonight I’m back to del.icio.us. Why? First and foremost, everything, EVERYTHING supports del.icio.us. Posting from RSS, wordpress widgets, firefox extensions, the list goes on and on. Second reason is all my friends are on del.icio.us and I like to keep up with what they are up too. Last reason is today, del.icio.us launched a redesign. While only affecting the homepage at the moment, it looks nicer with screenshots of sites like Shadows had and digg-like numbers to show how many people have saved it much like Blinklist.
So welcome back del.icio.us, you’ve been missed. Feel free to add me to your network to see what I’m bookmarking, my username is jadedhalo.
