Cleaning Up My RebelMouse
Last night I saw a link to my RebelMouse page in my list of Tweets to reuse and schedule. I hadn't been there in months, so I decided to see what was posted and saw too much that should not be there. I spent hours after that cleaning it up.
If you don't yet use RebelMouse, it's a site you can set up to save and organize what you have tweeted or posted on certain other sites onto your own own page, complete with the attached photos. It expresses your interests and packages them into a visually appealing page, somewhat like Paper.li. You can then email the link to friends, or post it on social networks, etc. I just posted a link to my page for Readers and Writers on tsu. It has gathered my Twitter posts that use certain hashtag into one, easy-to-browse page with a photo for each link.
My page was still attractive enough , but it was full of dead links to posts on Squidoo , Zurker , Gather , and Teckler . Some links also went to Bubblews posts that are either obsolete or destroyed by the site update. And don't even get me started about the links to my pins, which also came from those places and are spread throughout my eighty remaining boards. My Pinterest boards are next on the chopping block. I've already deleted two of them devoted to Bubblews.
It's wonderful to have tools like RebelMouse and Paper.li, but they hold your material for a very long time. Pinterest is even worse. I did delete all my Squidoo group boards, but I still have pins to pages that no longer exist there I need to clean up.
How about you? Do you have any past links to clean up?
