I’m gratified that many people, including Jay Rosen are intrigued by my recent decision to start tracking and sharing all the various comments I make around the blogosphere.
I’ve just taken a moment to implement the more elegant approach which Koan Bremner suggested for tracking my numerous and varied comments around the web. If you look over in the right-hand column right now (“My Most Recent Comments”), and you’ll see the result. Here’s what I did…
MY ORIGINAL, INELEGANT STRATEGY
WHAT I’VE JUST STREAMLINED
Well, shortly after I put that together (and I was so proud of myself for figuring it out), my good friend Koan Bremner pointed out to me that I didn’t need to create a separate del.icio.us page.
She’s right. So just now I added a new tag to my main del.icio.us page: “mycomments.”
Then I went and reposted to my main del.icio.us page those items I’d posted earlier to my (now redundant) second del.icio.us page. I made sure I tagged each of those items with mycomments.
…OK, it looks the same as last time I posted about this new feature. So to you there’s no difference. But the advantage to me, as the blogger, is that I get the same functionality withouthaving to log in and out of del.icio.us to access different pages on that services. That streamlines my sharing process, which makes it more likely that I’ll keep this up.
That’s a little easier.
