The 7 Habits of Highly Successful BlinkList Users

Once you start following the seven habits of highly successful BlinkList users, you will understand why our community members keep writing us fan mail like this.

"You guys rock! I have been using blinklist for a little while now and this is definitely one of the most useful sites I have ever stumbled upon. I recommend it to all my friends and for myself, I would be totally, completely and utterly lost without blinklist!” Dan


Habit 1: Bookmarking in the blink of an eye

With BlinkList surfing the net is a lot more fun because you can now blink (save) anything you find useful, interesting, or funny in “the blink of an eye.” So, there is no reason not to blink sites.

To make it fun, just make sure that you have added the ‘blink this site’ button to your browser. If you have not done so already, do this now before doing anything else.

Habit 2: Leave a breadcrumb trail (tag a lot)

When you blink sites, use lots of keywords (tags) so that you can quickly and easily find your links again. Don’t be afraid of using too many tags. Navigating through your tags is super easy on BlinkList. Use whatever keywords come to mind. Odds are if the words popped into your mind while blinking a site, they will again when you later want to retrieve you link. The next time you blink a site, BlinkList will then automatically start to suggest to you the tags that you have been using in the past. This will help you blink even faster and help you to keep your tags more organized.

Also remember that you can highlight text with your mouse on the site that you are blinking and that text will automatically be added to your descriptions.

Habit 3: Rapidly find your favorite links

While blinking is A LOT of fun, starring your favorite tags and links is equally fun and makes it super fast and easy to find all of your links in the blink of an eye.

Next to every tag and every link you will see a star. Just click on it and it turns from a blank star into a yellow star. A favorite (starred tag) means that it shows up in your favorite tab in your tag manager. A favorite (starred link) always shows up at the top so even if you keep adding more links under the same tag, finding your favorite links is easy. Once you start starring your favorite links and tags, you automatically start to build your QuickStart page – your onramp to the net.

If you are blinking lots of sites, you can also give them a quick rating from one out of 5 stars. This makes it much easier for you to find your favorite links again and it also helps your friends and your fans discover the sites you enjoyed the most.

Habit 4: Be social and watch what your friends are doing online

One of the coolest things about BlinkList is that you can find out the latest and greatest sites your friends or other people with a shared passion of interest are discovering online. Adding people to your watchlist is very easy. Whenever you are on another users page, just click on “add to watchlist.”

Even more fun is that as you start to blink great new content, you are going to start collecting fans and we show you who is watching you. This will help you to find more users with a shared passion and now you can start to discover the web together. Since BlinkList is all about being social, take a quick moment to add a profile and thumbnail so that your friends and fans can quickly recognize you and find you on BlinkList.

Cool tip: If you use the invite a friend feature on BlinkList, your friends will be automatically added to your watchlist when they signup with BlinkList!

Habit 5: Discover more

BlinkList, is also a discovery engine that helps you find the latest and greatest sites being discovered by the BlinkList community. To start discovering more just visit the main page at www.blinklist.com. Here you will see the hottest new sites that have been discovered as well as the most recently added sites. As you can see from the counter at the top, there are thousands of sites being discovered by the community everyday.

You can also navigate to any public discovery page of your liking. If you are interested in humor, css, or news, just go to those pages and see the latest and greatest sites and articles that have been blinked. If you are looking into a particular subject area, we also surface the top 3 contributors. You can think of these as the domain experts for any given discovery page and can just start to add the domain experts to your watchlist.

Habit 6: Venture outside

BlinkList is all about RSS so you can add any discovery page, user, or tag that you want to watch to your RSS reader. This way you find out right away when new information has been added to the topic that you are keeping track of.

You can also very easily add your favorite links into your blog. This makes it far easier to maintain a blog roll of your favorite bloggers or show the latest links you have been discovering online. Either way, adding your BlinkList links to your blog is very easy. Just click on the RSS button that you see at the bottom of every page.

Habit 7: Get a little closer

BlinkList is all about our community. This service is being developed for you and no one else so take ownership and start to contribute.

I disagree that more tags = better. Searching through hundreds of tags does not make it easier to find a bookmarked website. Likewise, putting down as many tags as possible makes it more likely you will use duplicate tags for similar things.

A much better practice is to always look through your EXISING tag list and choose as many as possible from that, before you add new tags.

I find blinking better than bookmarking as you will not lose date in case the computer is damaged. You can open your blink account on another computer.
