With Trickle you can easily save and connect sources from around the web to build your personal knowledge library. Use Trickle to never forget a great source again!
These days we are all flooded with information from many different channels, like news sites, social media, newsletters, podcasts, etc. In there are frequently great articles, videos or websites which are actually relevant to you but it is hard to keep a hold of them and they are quickly buried in the noise soon to be forgotten.
Everything with a web address can be added to your personal Trickle account. Here’s how:
- Copy the
linkof an article, video or website (often referred to as URL or sharing link) to the clipboard
- Login to Trickle (create a free account here), go to
My Sourcesand click the
Add source +button
- Paste the URL and click:
Add source +
From now on this source is safe and secure in your My Trickle account.
When you are using Trickle for sources that stand out for you, you have the following benefits:
- Trickle provides you with a dedicated space for your own curation of relevant digital sources — a safe harbor for content that is actually relevant for you
- Once sources are saved to Trickle, you can easily connect them to drips and streams to make use of them over time
- Trickle is built for self-directed learning, so it helps you to remember and actually make use of the content you save (more on that functionality in upcoming posts)
