Recently, I realized I should really reduce my bookmark count. As in the 80/20 rule, I probably use less than 20% of my browsers bookmarks. This might be highlighted by the fact that currently I have 1021 bookmarks and 21 folders according to Chrome. Many folders are way too large.
Yet two important assumptions that I want to consider: 1). I usually bookmark websites with diigo for archival / reference, but the fact that I put them in my "bookmarks bar" means they are slightly more important or actionable than others. 2). While I will sure find outdated bookmarks (I hope that I'll find many such), I am sure that it will be hard to reduce the count, because I have no system for it yet.
Thus my questions:
1). Maybe I should categorize my bookmarks in categories of importance or value, like class A, B, C?
2). Where (and how) would you archive these links, assuming I want to try to keep them for quick reference, but outside my bookmark bar? Make a simple list in Evernote with a short link title?
3). How can I make this whole process most efficient? Reviewing 1000+ bookmarks will take a while.
