Time to revive the old del.icio.us account perhaps

I’ll be honest, when I first signed up for del.icio.us a couple of years ago, I didn’t last long. Mainly because what I really wanted was a netvibes type service as opposed to a social booking site.

Anyway, I’ve not used it for a while now, but after reading Robin Hamman’s list of essential daily web tools, I’m tempted to give it another spin and see how I get along with it now that I actually understand what it’s meant to do, as opposed to what I thought it could do.

I can be dim at times.

It’s nice to see that I’ve been employing the same technorati, Google blog alerts and RSS techniques (although I’ll confess that I’d never heard of icerocket before) as one of the experts in the field. Makes me feel I’m doing something right.

It’s also one of the pieces of advice I’d give to any journalist or PR starting out – learn how Web 2.0 tools work, and make use of whatever feeds you can, and you may just be able to pick up on a story your competitors have missed or get wind of an issue that’s lighting up the blogosphere before others. It’s a nice feeling having a story land in your inbox without you having to lift a finger to find it, and it also frees up time for other work.
