A Giant Page of Annotated Links

Now that I am into making handmade books, in a BIG way, I want a place to keep track of my links about the subject. What I think I am going to do is create a repository page for annotated links. I am very tired of discovering useful and inspiring things, sending a note to myself on gmail about it, and then not being able to ever find it again among the thousands of messages that I have there (Julianne, can you relate?).

I will do this with any number of topics, and then aggregate all the links onto a giant link page on CarolWiebe.com. I want to be able to find what I want when I want, from anywhere, so this seems to be a workable solution. We’ll see.

Of course, it is a work in progress. And it will keep changing. What I will not have time for is to keep retesting all the links. I will have to rely on readers to let me know when a link has gone bad, for some reason, such as if a person makes changes to their website. Otherwise, they will only be changed serendipitously as I happen to test a link.

I also will keep playing with the structure of how I compose these annotated link pages, so they will keep evolving as well. As one of the tags, I will use Carol’s Annotated Links. It has also become a category (as of 3 seconds ago).

Stay tuned for the progress of this self-serving, mega-project, that you will certainly benefit from as well if you happen to be interested in the same topics I am.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

  1. Carol, have you tried saving your bookmarks to Delicious, a social bookmarking site? The beauty of it is that you can access it from anywhere, you can annotate your sites, you can tag them and because it is a social sharing site, you can see the most aggregated sites on your themes and find more. Probably there is a widget to display a feed to those sites to your wordpress blog. Quite a few libraries use Delicious too.

  2. I look forward to viewing this link page. That is really nice of you to display it where others can benefit from using it too!

    Handmade books are the focus of my next local artist gals get together – we’re going to do handmade paper and copper etching. Once of us already has a lovely collection from ebay that she got for practically nothing – she’s sharing for inspiration. So of course I have to share your links – this is awesome! Thanks, Carol!

  4. Oh my! Can I relate–even after that thorough “clearing” I just this morning began a new list (potential teaching venues in a draft email to me), and my very first thought seeing your post was an instinctive, “Ooooh, I think I still have my Handmade Book list, I’ll dig it out–share it with Carol & compare notes!” Not that I won’t do just that, but first I want to remember one of my new mantras: Making a list to stockpile information turns that list into more clutter–actually USING the information turns the list into a tool. Here’s to your new tool!!

  5. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility
    but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks
