Building Link Posts with Del.icio.us

A couple of people have asked me how I do the link posts on here. I know I have mentioned before that it is through del.icio.us, but I’m going to get more specific in how to do it.

Go to del.icio.us and set up an account.

Once you have an account, go to settings, and then daily blog posting. From there you will be able to set up your blog with your account, set the time that you want the posts to go up, etc.

I strongly advocate the use of Firefox 3 as a web browser, and if you use Firefox adding links is ridiculously easy. Del.icio.us has an extension for Firefox 3 that lets you add a link just by clicking a button on your toolbar. The picture at the top of the post shows the toolbar button.

And that’s it. I go through my Google Reader and Google Alerts and click the button on the toolbar for anything I want in my link post, and I don’t have to worry about anything else.
