I have a serious bookmark issue –
Having had pc’s both at home and at work, like forever, I have collected a few bookmarks to websites over the years. Throw a few smartphones and iPads to this mix, and you can see my problem 😉
How bad can it be, you might ask?
Between all my devices I have somewhere in the vicinity of 2500 bookmarks!!!
I found that the work pc alone have close to 1000 – whoa!!!
My new personal computer have around 300, and I have backup from old ones, with close to another 1000 – 949 to be exact.
Android phones/iPhone/iPad? Don’t have a clue – I can’t even think, to have to, manually count them – but it’s looking like at least 200+
Adding this to the email challenge I’ve started, it looks like I’m getting into a bit of digital clean ups these days.
So what did I do? Well – I’m proud to say, I got around 1900 of them deleted 🙂

You can sync bookmarks across Apple devices to help consolidate your list too 🙂
Yes I do that for my iPhone/iPad 😉 but all my PC’s are windows and my former phones has been android phones. I’m 1900 less on my windows bookmarks (still have a few more to clean up) the android phones, I won’t bother with, my iPhone/iPad is next on the list after I’m properly done with my pc’s… I’m chipping away at it 😉
I was also going to suggest syncing them via iCloud. Not sure if you can get a wireless storage for your windows pc’s & androids and somehow sync your files / bookmarks etc.?
Deleting 1 900 of them sounds tough – did you go through them all or just pressed delete? 🙂
I went through most of them, some off course I could see from the name they could just be deleted right away, the rest I pretty much clicked to see where they would go, a few went to error (delete), most went to no longer interesting stuff (delete), and some I have kept.
Would you believe I had a bookmark from 1987 (and it’s still active!) 😉
it was kinda fun actually, bringing me back in time, to things I used to be interested in or worked with 😉
Still have a few left, I’ll work on it this weekend and then I should be done (for a while 😉 )
What could you possible have from 1987?
LOL – actually it was a link to a company 🙂 deleted now, but it just goes to show, how long I’ve been into this PC stuff 😉
Oh my goodness! You were buried under an avalanche of bookmarks! Thankfully they were only virtual, or you would have been crushed to death!
