Del.icio.us vs. In-House Quicklinks

I’ve been considering switching to Del.icio.us to manage my quicklinks, rather than posting them directly into my weblog. Since switching to WordPress, I’ve had to fudge my quicklinks as a blog category rather than posting them to a separate blog (since WP can’t do multiple blogs), which calls for some messy templating.

But if I switch to Del.icio.us, should I display the links as a sidebar on my blog or try to integrate them into a daily digest entry (example)? It may seem silly to replicate the information, but a) I don’t want to lose the links if del.icio.us shuts down and b) I want to be able to search through all my entries and links in one place.

I feel much the same way about Flickr. I’ve only posted a few of the photos I’ve uploaded to Flickr as weblog entries — the rest have come and gone on the sidebar. I guess I have some control issues and don’t like the idea of content not being stored in my CMS.

Why not write something? It’s all well and good if the box is fancy and pretty, but it’s the cool present inside that really matters. 🙂
