After reading MyHandyMan's post on How To Use Bookmarks, it got me thinking about my bookmark organizing. Like many of you, time to practice is limited. With GMC having around 2,700 lessons (at the moment), my bookmarks are getting larger in number & poorly organized. I certainly can't practice all of them everyday. Of course I have by the genres, styles, farvorite artists & techniques. But have you labeled any of your folders in your bookmarks by a more creative label?

I suppose my problem is not having them organized in a way to fine tune wink.gif my practice time. I find myself working on a lesson for a while, then I get distracted by a new lesson introduced or just picking something else out randomly from my bookmarks.

Brainstorming a few ideas that popped in my head (these are just ideas & not currently in my bookmarks):

REC w/Sub Folders: Practicing, Completed, Future
Practice w/Sub Folders: Mon-Wed-Fri, Tue-Thur-Sat
5 Current Lessons (for each practice session)
Daily (what needs to be practiced daily)

I guess my point is that our bookmarks can get rather large & that maybe I need to have one main folder for daily practice time that I have not had before. I am curious if anyone else has run into this & how you have handled it?

Thanks for reading this. smile.gif

That was some helpful input for me, Gary!

I used to organize the bookmarks by technique...but since I rarely focus on a single technique for one practice session I skipped it again.
I hav a rec bookmark, but the problem is I delete finished rec lessons and never play them again.
So I made another folder "fun to play" which consists of finished rec takes and really simple lessons I play as a warm-up.

But I'll try to come up with another way to organize my stuff soon smile.gif

Well, I personally create one master GMC folder and then sub folders. I'm using GOOGLE CHROME which lets you keep all your bookmarks "in the cloud" so you can get to them where ever you are or no matter what device you are connecting with. Quite handy!!

This is a very good idea Blister. It's very important to be organized to be able to create effective routines every day. We have a enormous lessons archive here and bookmarking is the way to go. Thanks for sharing your idea.
