Since 'BM' is actually easy here @ 2Ps, I'm curious about what other Stampeas BM. (no cracks about using 'BM' as my abreviation)

Moi? I mostly bookmark threads that are swaps, challenges & technique/product-related.

I also BM an occasional project, but rarely ones that are not somehow linked to the forum since I don't 'roam' the gallery often.

Blogs? Only if they are thread-linked.

Members? Not so far.

OK. Your turn! There are no wrong answers & no 'guilt trips' for this. Get it? Got it? Good!

I often think I should BM threads, but I have never done it! Never.

The only thing I've BM is other people's projects, when I see something I want to try. I haven't done that for ages, though. I think I've been so busy with swaps and challenges that I haven't subconsciously needed ideas, so I haven't thought to BM good ones.

What's the point of BM people? I've seen that feature but wondered why you'd do it. I guess if you like their work but they're not a regular chatter...

We can bookmark threads? I guess we all know what my answer is, lol. I didn't know we could bookmark.

I BM threads for study challenges and swaps. On the NSBR board I will occasionally BM threads that are train wrecks. Well just cause I like a good train wreck lol.

The only thing I've BM'd here so far are projects that I'd like to try for a future card I'd like to make.

LOL on the 'train wrecks', Angie. I've been tempted, but not BM'd any.

AJ. Yeah. I actually BM projects, but they are almost always ones on a BM'd thread/blog.

Angie, I'm laughing at the train wreck threads. I don't venture over to the NSBR board much,I'm a little scared too.

I bookmark cards/project that I wanna try or like the technique or color combo of and threads that interest me. I didnt know you could BM members. That's interesting.

What is the difference for "liking" a project to bookmarking a project...thought it was the same thing? When I go to my public profile I'm able to see the liked projects just as much as the bookmarked ones.

I didn't know you can bm threads?! Would love too because they had a great thread on inks!

Good question, Patty!

For projects, there's probably little difference between the 2.

Far as BM in other ways? When you go to your BMs (the dropdown menu under your P-name) you will see categories--member, project, blogs, message board. HTH

I BM threads of swaps and challenges I'm currently doing so I can go back and chat to everyone.

I mainly bookmark individual projects, although some I pin. No rhyme or reason for pinning versus bookmarking.

I only bookmark members when they have a specific style that I like.

Bookmarking can get out of hand, so I periodically clean house of stuff I don't like as much as when I first bookmarked it.



P.S. I liked it better when we BOS'd projects.

Now that I'm joining a few swaps/challenges..I get the importance of bookmarking the threads. (I just figured out how to do this). Will make remembering what I'm committed to so much easier!

Furry. Good point about doing the occasional 'clean up' with bookmarks. They can pile up.
