Thanksgiving is approaching, and I have started my hunt for the best Turkey recipes 🙂 After tagging, highlighting all the good stuff that I found on the web, I entered few keywords to pull out the list of my research. But that’s still quite a few web resources to compare and decide which one looks the most promising! So here is what I do:
1) Use “Expand All” or “Expand” to open up my annotations that I made while researching. This lets me browse through what I considered “important” easily:
2) Use the “Preview” link under each bookmark to quickly browse through the original page without having to open up another window and interrupting my research flow. I can scroll the page up and down, quickly deciding whether to look through that page more closely or move on to other bookmarks:
3) Of course, besides my own bookmarks, I can also select “Everyone’s Bookmarks” and check out what the community has collectively discovered.
And, if I decide to further organize a specific collection of bookmarks on a topic, I can also build a Diigo List (like a folder, but much better!) to access and/or share it easily.
More tips on creative ways to use a Diigo List, and social discovery that you can get through the Diigo Sidebar later!
PS. I probably will go with this one: 8 Treasures Stuffed Turkey with Shiraz-Honey Jus. Sounds yummy! Wish me luck 🙂
