Kaitlyn's Deli.cio.us Tagging Experience
My experiences with delicious this semester have been relatively helpful. Prior to this course, I had never heard of deli.ciou.us. I feel that this is a very useful tool that I will continue using in the future. I think the ability to access favorites from any computer anywhere is a very useful tool that I will continue to use in the future.
The majority of my tags related to my interests, IT, or sites related to my weekly blogs. It was interesting to notice others who had tagged the same website and search through some of their other delicious tags as well. I was able to find interesting sites about IT this way and others I would not have been able to find on my own.
Delicious has been an incredibly useful tool for my position as formal recruitment chair in Alpha Delta Pi. I have written several blogs about the recruitment plans for our chapter, and have been able to include links to websites where clothes should be purchased. It has been useful because while searching online for clothing and outfits members could potentially wear, I can tag all sites to delicious and easily search for them. I am also able to show them to other members of the recruitment team when I am not using my own computer which has saved a lot of time.
Additionally, rather than having to choose a folder to store a bookmark, I like that I can assign as many unique keywords as I would like in order to find the tag when I am searching again. It is convenient that I do not have to create and organize folders on my own, but rather delicious does this work for me.
The delicious experience has also made me search the internet more on a daily basis than I would have. It has made me discover many other interesting websites that I would not have explored otherwise. By checking popular tags and my friends' tags I have found new and interesting websites.
