That’s why I’m here. To help you do just that…

So this is what my internet web browser looks like:

Pretty uneventful, I know, but it’s excellent at making my life as productive as possible! It shows me the news headlines and then my email on my homepage. But the reason I’m writing this post doesn’t have to do with what’s on my google homepage – you probably (or hopefully, rather) already have one!

The reason I’m writing this post is in regards to a very small line of bookmarks that you can barely see in the picture above – so let me zoom in a bit to help us:

Notice my bookmarks. This is my Tip Of The Month!

If you have a bookmark bar (which you should!!!) NEVER put the entire name of the website! That is an absolute waste of space. I have created my own shorthand, so to speak, for my bookmarks. The following bookmarks in the above picture are:

Google, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Analytics, Google Reader, Google Voice, Facebook, Blackboard, Continuing Education Websit, Twitter, Pandora, The Ross Chronicles, WordPress, Bluehost Control Panel, Bludomain Control Panel…and others that you can’t see in the zoom in.

But needless to say, in my entire browser I have managed to fit 26 bookmarks across the top of my screen and they are all right there available at a moment’s notice. Notice that for Pandora Radio, I have managed to put a music note. This is by using an alt-code symbol. You can copy and paste them directly from this site.  This saves you even more room – as long as you can make sense of (and remember) what symbol you use for what website.

Good idea?

ABSOLUTELY.    So do it.

    I was wondering how you did that. Josh has his set up the same way. I thought it was a mac thing.
