Organizing The Interwebs

Friends, I’m a busy gal.

Even though I spend a lot of time online, I’m mostly working or doing homework.  I get behind on reading content on blogs and other sites pretty much every week. Also, I tend to find something online that I want to read or reference later, so I keep the site up on a tab in my browser…which is why I have approximately 4,297 tabs open right now. Yeah, not really working out that well.

I just learned about a couple of cool sites to help me organize content – Digg and Diigo. Digg is an RSS reader. I can add blogs, news sites, or anything that updates content on a somewhat regular basis to my Digg reader, and voila – I can catch up on everything, all in one place. Time-saver.

Diigo is a little different – while it allows me to organize content, collaborate with others, and more.  It’s like bookmarking, but I can access content from any computer, anywhere. Handy.

So, there you go. Two ways in which I use technology to help me manage technology. No, the irony is not lost on me.

If you want to check out my Digg and/or Diigo accounts, here are the links:
