I've always wanted each thing to have its own place. I keep separate notebooks for separate things: story ideas, books I want to read, lists of things to buy, recipes, songs to download, websites to check out, etc. So it only follows suit that, where this is something I occasionally update about share-worthy events in life (and occasional soap-boxing), I would want a different place to post stuff I find online and want to get back to one day.

Following my usual pattern, I went elsewhere entirely for this purpose: Tumblr. I didn't want to just keep a list of 'favorite websites' to go back to, and have to click each link to remember what they represent. I wanted a way to keep track of things I've come across I'd want to try to make, do, cook, bake, places I'd want to go if I got the chance, etc. and that others could look at and maybe go 'Hey! I wanna try that, too!' And whether anyone else uses it or not, it would be easy for me to scan through and find something, because I'm putting in a photo of each finished product, location, what have you...

So check it out! It's called One Day I Wanna... and each individual post has a short title (and some have a quick description) with a linked photo below it! Easy to peruse, and more fun to look at!

Pix online

I know that not everyone uses Facebook. There are at least 4 people in America who have not signed up. ;) So I've been putting pictures in Flickr so anyone can see them, and not just FB friends. But you can only put so many on there without paying for it (or else it only shows the 200 newest pix). Well, boo on them. So I just uploaded new pix to a Picasa album, and will eventually migrate the Flickr pix over, too. But I have some links set up to the Flickr pix that I'll have to change, so I'm not so much in a hurry for that. :)
