Clipmarks - another form of social bookmarking

This is an example of how "clipmarks" saves to a blog.

It's the birthday of the poet Jenny Joseph, (books by this author) born in Birmingham, England (1932). She was an aspiring poet throughout her 20s, supporting herself with odd jobs. Then in 1960, when she was 28 years old, she published a poem called "Warning," which began with the line, "When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple."

Somehow, as the poem became more and more popular, Jenny Joseph's name as the author was lost. Other people claimed to have written the poem, or it was attributed to "Anonymous." Jenny Joseph eventually published an authorized, illustrated version of the poem in 1997, which sold thousands of copies. Her name is still not as well known as that one poem, but today she is considered one of the foremost contemporary British poets.

When she was asked if she would start wearing purple anytime soon, Jenny Joseph replied, "I can't stand purple. It doesn't suit me."

Annotating something through the toolbar is a simple case of selecting text, waiting for a menu to pop up and pressing ‘Highlight’. When you have annotated text, it is underlined with dashes, you can then add a sticky note to the selected text, and choose whether or not if you wish to share that sticky with other users. Your annotations are saved onto Diigo’s website, which allows you to access them on pretty much Internet-connected PC. You can also see who else has annotations on that page.
