This week one of my colleagues posted a link to her newly created webpage, a place where she can organize and access all websites, files, blogs, or pictures she would normally bookmark and lose track of. Looking deeper into the webpage I decided to create one of my own with Pearl Trees.
Pearl Trees lets you organize websites, blogs, and files individually to store in one location, as well as creating collections of similar topics. On my pearl tree page I have various webpages, youtube videos, apps stored on my main page, as well as collections for my personal social media sites, my learning project resources, and mathematical/educational blogs and websites. I find this site to be extremely handy as I have all of my main sites for university and every day browsing at the click of a finger now, no more searching! A few other bonuses are that it allows you to download an app for your phone (iPhone or Android) and now if I’m not on my laptop I can still add sites to my PearlTree page while I’m on my handheld device. Second bonus, feeding off of my last blog post, is that it also comes with a Google Chrome extension. So no matter what site or blog I’m reading about, I simply click the extension (blue star symbol) and select to add this webpage to Pearl Tree; just like bookmarking but much more organized!
