I hope to save some history for future web archaeologists.
Creating a Navigable Rabbit Hole I only caught the tail end of the Common Place Book session at #IndieWeb camp online as it fell right during dinner. Since I didn't get to share with everyone I thought I would lay out a few strategies in a quick post here and overtime"My Common Place Book" will t...
I have been bookmarking on my (second) site for a while now. In the past I used Diigo, but I would save everything without much thought. I tinkered with Radio3, but it just did not work for what I was after.
I feel posting on my site has made me more conscious of what I save and share. I have progressively extended this too incorporating the various post kinds.
Before I save bookmarks, I use a combination of Pocket and Trello as a temporary store. I have documented this here.
Hope that helps.

I find it interesting to consider when writing, but never really utilise them to be honest. Tags continued as before, often involving a mixture of themes, topics and authors mentioned.
With my new ‘commonplace’ blog, I focused on three categories:
In regards to tags, I try and restrict myself to three tags. Again, this is often a mixture of author, topics and themes.

Although I have long left my Wikity, one of the practices that continues is the interlinking within my work. I often link back to other posts. I kind of see this sort of activity as about maintaining my memory.
I was really taken by this quote by Ryan Holiday:
As a researcher, you’re as rich as your database. Not only in being able to pull something out at a moment’s notice, but that that something gives you a starting point with which to make powerful connections. As cards about the same theme begin to accumulate, you’ll know you’re onto a big or important idea.
