Hitting the Computer Information Technology Motherload With The NEW Bookmarks4Techs.com

March 14, 2013

As many of you know, I maintain a second website called Bookmarks4Techs. As of today I announce that I have moved Bookmarks4Techs to a FREE host (called Weebly) that allows you to use your own domain name for FREE (if you have one). At first I was sort of skeptical of this; however, after using Weebly’s online editor to build the site, I am pretty much sold. Weebly has a large array of templates which to pick from and is an excellent way to establish an online presence.

Bookmarks4Techs

If you are not familiar with Bookmarks4Techs, I suggest that you bookmark or blogroll it for future reference. Bookmarks4Techs is one of the largest indexes of tech sites on the internet (over 600 links). If you are looking for information regarding software, apps, android, apple, windows, hardware, gadgets, tech news, tech blogs;then you you hit the motherload with Bookmarks4techs.com …

Throughout the years of maintaining What’s On My PC, I have managed to accumulate (and continue to accumulate) links to numerous tech sites. As a result, I decided to share these links with you through Bookmarks4Techs! I personally use the site to navigate the internet looking for ideas for my next article and to keep myself up-to-date on computer information technology. As an added bonus you will find numerous RSS Feeds to some very popular tech sites.

Create An Archive Index Of Your WordPress.com Blog Posts

January 2, 2013

Recently I added an archive page to Bookmarks4Techs which is a listing of links (with titles) to every article I ever posted at What’s On My PC. When I came up with the idea I had to find a way to generate the list (which, at the time, was approximately 1450 articles) without expending a lot of work. I had some ideas up my sleeve; however, it goes back to an adage that I have; “If you can think of it, someone else has done it!”.

If you are using WordPress.com as your blogging platform, you will find that WordPress already has some shortcoding available that will allow to generate archive listings, in various types of formats. To generate the list that I needed, it was as simple as starting up the blogging editor in my account and inserting the shortcode [ archives ] in the editor, then clicking on Preview and voila’ there was a list of every article I ever posted in the order that they were posted. I simply then copied and pasted the listing into the Bookmarks4Techs archive page.

NOTE: In the example I used above, there are no spaces, between the brackets and the word archives. I had to place spaces between the brackets and the word archives to prevent WordPress from automatically generating the list of all my articles.

You can also insert additional archive shortcodes that will allow you to customize your lists.  See the examples provided below.  You can get more instruction and information on using these shortcodes [here] :

A PC Tech’s Quick Reference Web Site

December 28, 2012

Just when I think I have found most of the golden nuggets on the internet, I come across another. While performing an update to the Bookmarks4Techs listing, a visitor to the site contacted me and suggested that I add the tech site GEGeek – PC Tech Quick Reference to the listing.

GEGeek

What I expected to find was a tech blog, but what I came across is a Geek’s paradise for anyone who is into computers; and especially,  computer repair & troubleshooting. While you are there, pay special attention to the GEGeek Tech Toolkit.  This toolkit should be called a Tech Tool Shop…  It is a 1.0 gig download and contains everything, as a tech, you would ever need.

An excerpt about the author of GEGeek:

This site is the culmination of years of CAREFULLY selecting a handful of links to assist me on my current job, personal consulting work and of course my own PCs. Not every site has all useful links ⁄ articles, but there were always one or two gems to be found on every site I visited. Keeping them readily available and manageable became quite a chore, so i created this site just to help me organize them and provide a quick reference . The “How To” is assumed knowledge, I just provide the quick reference.

Two NEW Enhancements at Bookmarks4Techs.com

December 27, 2012

If you have not visited Bookmarks4Techs.com recently, I encourage you to do so. Don’t let the name of the site lead you to believe that the site is only for techs. Bookmarks4Techs is one of the largest collection of links to computer information technology sites and news on the internet. If you have a passion for computer information technology, to include software, apps, cloud computing, desktop computing, tablet computing, smartphones, etc…, then this site is for you. I can guarantee that you will keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest by visiting the links I have posted on the site.

Bookmarks4Techs.com

Not only will you find one of the largest collection of links to computer and information technology sites on the internet, you will now find two NEW enhancements to the site.

  1. Tech News – As you scroll down the listing of links, on the homepage, you will notice RSS news feeds for some of the most popular tech sites and blogs on the internet. These feeds automatically update so that when you come back to visit, there is always something new.  I actually use this to get my daily dose of tech news and to see what is new on some of my favorite blogs.
  2. Archived Blog Posts – The archive is a brainstorm idea that I came up with that list links to every single blog article ever posted at What’s On My PC. As I continue to post here at What’s On My PC, the archive at Bookmarks4Techs will continue to grow. As of today’s post, I currently have archived links to 1,457 posts.

Bookmarks4Techs is Back!

November 26, 2012

You may have read my recent article, Has Bookmarks4Techs Been Kidnapped or Assassinated?, where the host of the site (Google’s Blogger Service), through an automated classification system removed my sister site (Bookmarks4Techs.com) without warning (for suspicion of SPAM). The only notice I received was this:

Hello, Your blog at http://www.bookmarks4techs.com/has been reviewed and confirmed as in violation of our Terms of Service for: SPAM. In accordance to these terms, we’ve removed the blog and the URL is no longer accessible. For more information, please review the following resources:

Blogger Terms of Service: http://blogger.com/terms.g

Blogger Content Policy: http://blogger.com/go/contentpolicy

-The Blogger Team

Needless to say, after 2 weeks of working through a Google Groups Moderator (who was as polite as a badger), my site at Blogger has not been restored and I do not expect it to be restored. My last communication with the moderator resulted in this response:

Unfortunately, “bookmarks4techs.blogspot.com” was recently confirmed as a spam host.

As a result, I have went back to the drawing board to do a rebuild of Bookmarks4Techs.com.  I have decided to keep it simple and to avoid the complexities I had in place that apparently tripped Google’s automated classification system.

Bookmarks4Techs

Bookmarks4Techs.com is back! I request your patience as I update the site and thank you for your support.

Bookmarks4Techs.com Continues To Evolve

April 7, 2012

Most of you are probably not aware that I maintain a second tech site, called Bookmarks4Techs, that has grown into a tech info site that is great for anyone from the seasoned tech specialist to the home based computer user. I have been primarily using the site as a testing ground; however, I have now reached a point where I have a method to my madness (as they say). In essence, I am sanding out the rough edges.

Bookmarks4Techs.com

What this site is evolving into is an enormous launching point for technology news, tech products, software, android apps, wallpapers, tech sites, etc… I use various resources on the internet (with credit always given) to quickly get this information to you. It is like a big grab bag of tech information and links that is conveniently available in one place. It is like looking for Easter Eggs.

When you first arrive to the site, make sure you scroll down and checkout the sidebars. The sidebars are loaded with RSS feeds that are constantly updated with information from some of the most popular tech blogs and sites on the internet.

I invite you to drop by frequently, due that I often get into a rapid posting mode where I’ll make 2-3-4 posts at a time. You can also subscribe to the site via a RSS feed [ HERE ] OR via Email [ HERE ] to keep up with the pace.

If you are a blogger or tech website owner, and you add Bookmarks4Techs to your blogroll, I will routinely feature (in rotation) your tech site at Bookmarks4Techs (as a Featured Tech Site – click here for example) and will post your site on the Bookmarks4Techs Links page (in big letters).  This will help the site grow in popularity and at the same time give your site exposure.

What Bookmarks4Techs has to offer is this:

Bookmarks4Techs Links – Features over 500 links to various tech and software sites on the internet. This (idea) page is actually the page that ignited the development of the rest of the site. If you are into tech, then no need to bookmark tech sites; I’ve done the work for you…

Bookmark This Collection
– If you like software, then this is your page. This page features software that I personally use (or have used) and highly recommend.  The best part is that it is all FREE!.

Bookmarks4Techs StoreFront -  To maintain operation of the site I serve as an Amazon Affiliate. This page features computer and technology related links to products at Amazon.com. If you are a customer of Amazon, launch to the Amazon site from any link at Bookmarks4Techs. When you do, It throws a few pennies in my cup to keep the site going.  Also, on the sites’ left sidebar you will find a listing of tech product categories broken down for your convenience.

Today’s Technology News – Using various resources on the internet, I started posting the latest tech news. This page was actually done as a personal convenience (to keep me on top of things); however, I think you will find it quite newsworthy for you, as well.

Featured Software – This is the one I like and enjoy.  Again, using various reputable resources, I pull down updates and the latest in software (mostly all FREE).

Android Apps – If you own an Android device (such as a smartphone or tablet), then this is for you.  This is relatively new and I ask for patience as I find resources for this; however, I do have a good run going on this now (especially the Amazon Daily Free “Paid” App).

Featured Wallpapers – If you like wallpaper backgrounds, make sure you hit this frequently.

Thank You !

Something New at Bookmarks4Techs.com

January 31, 2012

I am writing to you to let you know there is something NEW at Bookmarks4Techs.com that consists of a new posting regimen and a new layout of the sites’ content.

Bookmarks4Techs.com is a second website that I maintain that initially started out as a large collection of links to tech sites. That large collection is still there; however, the site is now at another level where I can comfortably post content at a comfortable pace. I would also like to point out that the site is for everyone (especially home users) and not just Techs.

Bookmarks4Techs.com

Most everyone loves computers, software and anything related to information technology. It has become entrenched in our daily lives. What I have started at Bookmarks4Techs, that is NEW, is a posting regimen that I am calling “Bookmark This”. One of my obsessions is cruising the internet at hyper-speed and finding anything that is FREE and is related to computers, software and information technology.

What “Bookmark This” is going to bring to you is a way to quickly capture (and quickly read) what I think is good out there or something that I found that is exciting that you should know about (i.e. an article from another blogger FREE software, an Android App, etc…). Now what is good to one person, may not be good to another; but, I think as this develops, the selections that are made will be recognized as top quality. I research and play around with everything I recommend. I have experience doing this from managing “What’s On My PC” and from working as an IT Professional for over 20 years.

The layout of the site has also been changed and consists of (6)-six tab areas:

Home Page– Daily Posts (which will primarily feature Tech Products of the Day, Tech Deals, the Bookmark This posts, FREE and Paid Android Apps, etc…).  I will tell you up front, that I am an Amazon Associate and you will see me pointing out to you the best of the best at Amazon.

Bookmarks4Techs– Features over 500 Links to Tech Sites. I am working to clean this up and remove the dead links. It is amazing how many sites are now dead since I started this. Blogging and maintaining a site is hard work and the number of sites that have went dead in the water really surprised me.

Bookmark This Collection – When I do a “Bookmark This” post, the collection of these posts will be managed and collected. The list is currently short, but give it time; it will grow. Again, I will only list quality FREE software, cloud apps, etc…  This will serve as a good resource for those looking for good quality FREE software, information, etc…

Shop for Deals– This will link you to the Bookmarks4Techs Amazon Store that I have put together. Give it a try. I think you will like it.  I am pretty proud of how this turned out.

Amazon Deal of the Day– Deal of the Day is featured from this tab. I hit this tab every day; where Amazon will make huge price cuts on products, etc…

About– Some information about me as a blogger and IT professional.

Also, on the left sidebar of the site, make sure you check out the Shop @ Amazon listing. I have tried to make a general category listing to assist you with looking for specific computer products (i.e. a mouse pad, keyboard, etc…).

On both sidebars you will find feeds from some of the top tech blogs out there.  If you want to know what is going on, all you have to do is scroll down through these sidebars. The bloggers who maintain these sites are some of the best of the best.

To subscribe to Bookmarks4Techs.com by email [ CLICK HERE ] and to subscribe to Bookmarks4Techs by RSS [ CLICK HERE ]By subscribing you will be alerted to the most recent posts. You can back out of either of these subscriptions anytime.

I encourage you to take the time and visit Bookmarks4Techs.com and help me make it a successful site. If you are a tech blogger and you do not see your site on the bookmarks list, please let me know. I will almost surely add your site providing it offers solid content and is maintained regularly. Also, by adding Bookmarks4Techs.com to your blogroll will help to support what I am intending to accomplish.

Thank You !
