In this regard , with your bookmarks, you should apply same principle like described above with your harddisk or you'll never be able to find important bookmarks again. I personally know some "specialists", some friends of mine, who had been saving all their bookmarks on root directory of their bookmark folder.
When I asked them for a special web site, they didn't remember where they got it....
You'll need at least one main folder "MARKETING" or you'll mess up these bookmarks with your private bookmarks e.g. for sports, hobbies, movies etc. etc. Within this main folder, you should create folders for example: 01-Autoresponders, 02-E- books, 03-Newsletter-Articles, 04-Ezine-Directories.... and list goes on.
3.) Make regular backups
Do you publish an ezine yourself ? If yes, then you'll know how important it is to save your most important data in regular time intervals. Just imagine your computer crashed and you had lost all names of your subscribers.....or articles you had pre- pared .
This would be catastrophe in most cases, can you afford this ? You would have to start from zero again. Or another vision.... You just paid a hundred bucks to get new e-book of XYZ and you did not save it elsewhere than on your harddisk.
A defect on your harddisk, a windows-crash or a simple virus that infected your computer , can make this horror-vision come true. So be prepared and save your data (login information/book- marks, important e-mails, articles your wrote or recent news- letters and e-books) to a portable disk or write it onto a CD-Rom.
Do this in regular time intervals (e.g. every Saturday) and you will be on safe side.
