Someone once said that weblogging was just all about sharing one’s thoughts in a timely manner on a web space to then be able to come back to them at a certain point in time and revisit them to see if they would still be worth while pursuing further or not. And during all this time that I have been reading weblogs I have seen this same thing with people sharing some of their own favourite links they may have been exposed to while using del.icio.us, Furl, Spurl, BlinkList, Simpy, populicio.us, Yoono or whatever other social bookmarking service, you name it, but I have never ventured to follow that same pattern of sharing links in either of my weblogs.
Well, now that we are getting started with the new year I thought I would jump in and start sharing a number of different links and a couple of thoughts here and there about each of them so that in its due time, and whenever I feel I would want to spend some more time on them, I would know exactly where to turn to to pick them up again and continue with the conversation(s).
So I have decided that from now on, I still have to figure out the frequency, I will be sharing here in elsua a number of different web links that I feel are worth while saving and coming back to in its due time. What you will be able to see during the course of the next few months is myself sharing both web links and links to weblog posts that I would consider relevant to myself and the purpose of this weblog and comment with a line or two why I would think it would be worth while revisiting those links at a later time.
I know that most people use their favourite web links from del.icio.us but since I have a tendency to use several of the above social bookmarking offerings I will just share the links with those additional thoughts. Then if things go all right and if I manage to find the time for some more extensive weblogging about them you will eventually see their own posts as part of this same weblog.
Thus stay tuned for some more because starting this week I shall be sharing the first round of links that have been in my mind for some time now. Some of them going back a few months as well ! So it would be interesting to see how they will turn out to be in the end. We shall see. I may think as well about creating a dynamic section as part of the weblog template but I think that this time around I will just kick things off with a new category: Links and Thoughts that would be easily accessible to everyone, including myself.
