I'm Delicious!

But I wouldn't recommend actually tasting me! Now, once you get your mind back out of the gutter, I'm talking about del.icio.us, and, even though I've used it for quite a while, just recently have I started to see the real value in it. I guess you have to have quite a few items tagged before you can see the value, which makes sense.

Anyway, I was subscribing to a couple of other people's del.icio.us feeds, mainly because I didn't know another way to do it. Then I saw the inbox - and now I just use that, and have added those two, plus a few others to my inbox, meaning whenever they tag something, it shows up in my inbox. FYI, you can also add tags to your inbox, so you can see all posts about a particular tag. Or a combo - see links that a user tags with a specific tag.

There's so much power offered by del.icio.us than I realized when I first started using it.

But then I discovered something else: For. I can tag a link for another user if I know their user name. How did I find that out? Jason Salas tagged something for me.

On another note,?and this isn't directly related to del.icio.us, but I've decided to start tagging my posts (through Technorati) more than I have in the past (assuming I remember to do so). A while ago, I added tagging to my custom blogging tool, so it's just a matter of adding the tags. It's too simple not to. What prompted that? It's one of three steps that Darren Rowse recommends to get more traffic. I'm not doing it specifically for traffic, but more to get my writing in the hands of the people who want it.

I guess that is more traffic, huh?
