Del.icio.us – Bookmarks = Shared Links

I've recently observed a neat habit I have. When I come across a link that is kindof neat, but I don't think I'll necessarily click on it again, sometimes I still have this feeling that I don't want to lose it. Normally I'd bookmark it, but this ends up creating clutter and I rarely delve into my deep bookmarks anyway.

However, lately I've noticed (this wasn't a conscious decision) that I end up sending a friend or family member an email with the link in it. Most of the time, if I find something inspiring or interesting, so will at least one of my friends. Thanks to Gmail, my link is now saved forever, should I need it, but entirely out of my face. Also, I've shared something with someone, which is especially nice when I haven't talked to him or her in awhile.
