Pearltrees - Create your Online Bookmark

Monday, July 23, 2012

I don't know about all of you, but my computer is jammed full of saved links - from bookmarks to written in a text file to screenshots. I basically have a folder of
"to-do" & "need to read" which gets bigger and bigger and never gets read because it's never organised. I randomly came across this site called Pearltrees and it is amazing! I will talk about it and explain how it works and also how you set up your account. I've been using it for over a month now and I love it. It's so quick and easy!

What is Pearltrees?

Pearltrees is a place online to store, share and organise everything that is on the web.

How does it work?

You instal "Pearler" and place it in your bookmarks. Then when you come across something you like on the web, you simply click the bookmark and an options window will pop up (shown below) allowing you to save it to your tree. You can organise your tree into many pearls (like folders) and keep everything in a certain place on your account. No more messy, full bookmark bar's or reading lists.
