Getting started is a lot of work

Argh. After all the helpful suggestions people gave me, I got motivated to get started on this. It’s not going so well, though…

I took dthree’s advice and got set up with http://www.spurl.net, which is a pretty nice bookmark manager, although a bit slow-running. The premise was that it would sync with del.icio.us, but I found out too late that it only syncs NEW “spurled” bookmarks, not imported ones.

So now I have a very lovely and organized master collection of bookmarks on Spurl, which is progress, at least.

However, I still face the hurdle of getting them into del.icio.us AND getting them all tagged. I’m the kind of keener who will probably see this through, but I don’t think del.icio.us is going to catch on with Joe Average until it’s more automated.

Also, from where I stand, I’m not sure I understand all the benefits of using del.icio.us. I’m pursuing it on faith for the time being.



Import existing bookmarks (IE)?

I haven’t found any information out there to help me automate the import of my existing bookmarks in Internet Explorer (on XP). I have a ton, and entering them manually in del.icio.us is a big enough hurdle that I’d probably just forgo it altogether.

(Please, keep your anti-IE sentiments to yourself. I use IE because I’m testing some plugins and don’t want to constantly run two browsers)

Thank you!
