delicious is going down  
I'm currently using diigo to import my bookmarks from delicious. It seems the best option out of this list by bookshop . I'm also going to check out Mister Wong, as mentioned in the previous link.

It seems as though there is no reliable bookmarking site that includes some of the preferred features of delicious, however. Diigo isn't perfect, and Pinboard requires payment (which I can't do, seeing as i have no credit card or any way to pay online besides gift card).

This page also gives some alternative website links, though there's some crossover in the sites mentioned.

So. I'm uploading to diigo and Mister Wong at the moment in an effort to save my bookmarks. I'll worry later about finding a website with a system for locating specific bookmarks later.

Sites I've used:
Diigo -- haven't heard anything from them about my bookmarks being completely imported.
Mister Wong -- refuses to let me sign in to delicious.
Evernote -- epic fail.
BlinkList -- Uploaded the bookmarks very quickly, but did not tag. Doesn't seem to have a "edit multiple entries" button either >.<

eta2: Diigo and Mister Wong have still yet to e-mail me saying my bookmarks have been uploaded. I used BlinkList and while it uploaded all of my delicious bookmarks, it forewent the tags.

So what I need is something that will upload the tags as well, or I'll have to go through and retag each link.

I'm thinking about using Diigo. I've made an account, but have yet to import my bookmarks. Del.ici.ous let me export them pretty easily, but idk really where to go from here. :(

It sucks royally that they are going down. >__< I have so many sites bookmarked there, it's slightly ridiculous.

How've you been, sweetie? *snugs* Seems like it's been awhile since we last talked. ♥♥♥

Diigo was the first site I heard about as an alternative to Delicious. They said they'd e-mail me once my bookmarks are uploaded, and that was hours ago. Then again, loads of people are probably joining...

YES. I have 1601 bookmarks on delicious. I don't want to lose them all and I don't want to lose my tags, or how will I find specific fics?

I've been doing okay. Having problems with my college -- again. Man, I miss you though, we don't talk nearly enough! What have you been up to? *clings* JENN~

Also, I left you a random message in your ask box via tumblr, I don't know if you've seen.

Several other people on my flist are trying out Diigo, and since they're more motivated than me (lazy Jenn is laaaaaazy) I'mma wait to hear back from them to see how it goes.

I have… hmm… just over 2500 that are shareable and have proper tags. I've got another 6000 that aren't. =/ Told you I was lazy. It was absolutely painful to tag the ones I have, though, and is not a process I'm looking forward to doing again. I need a site that will import my tags as well! Why oh why does it have to close? ;A;

We don't! It feels like it's been ages. I'm… emotional, is the best way to put it I think. School is finally finished for the semester, but I know I failed at least a couple of classes. I just wasn't focused, and I'm hoping that the one class I know I aced will help to balance it out so my GPA doesn't plummet too far.

Outside of school, I found a new fandom -- really, rediscovered an old love ♥ -- and a dear friend of mine is dying in the hospital.

She's 81, and has multiple heart problems. They've sedated her to the point where she is barely ever conscious, and because of that visits to her are even more heartbreaking than they would be otherwise because she can hear us but can do nothing but lay there in the bed and look like a broken rag-doll. ;_____; It's been a pretty hard past two weeks, and I'm just happy her family is here now (they were in Mass and Cali) so that she has someone with her all the time. The doctors don't think she's gonna make it out of this, and it's depressing on many levels. I just got back from saying my last goodbye to her, and I feel like crying. ;A;

Sorry to dump on you, Missy. *clings* I'm just… adrift.

Oh! And I did see the message. <3 I responded, so it posted it… I think? Tumblr is strange like that. I think the response should travel back to the user, and it should be optional to post it or not. =/ Oh well.

Waiting is the smart way of doing it I think. I panicked and rushed and now I can't even be sure that diigo is going to work.

fff 2500 + 6000 untagged oh my god :C I can't even imagine, to loose all that...and I'm panicking over 1600! LOL I'm lazy as well; some of my first bookmarks had barely any tags at all. Tag importing is really important *nod* It's closing because the leaders of Yahoo are idiots. *grumbles to self*

Which fandom did you (re)discover? XD

Oh, sweetie. I am so sorry. *hug* I can't imagine how difficult that must be for you. But at least she has her family there now, which must bring her some comfort. And I know she'd appreciate having you there, sweet person that you are :) And it sounds as though she's lived a full life, too -- 80 years worth, a nice respectable number. *tries to avoid saying cliche things*

*clings* That's what friends are for, to be there when you're down and just need to vent for awhile. Any time you wanna talk, just message me.

♥ Oh, you did see the message? I never saw your response to it, I thought maybe you hadn't. I'll have to go to your tumblr and track it down then ^____^ Tumblr has this thing where there's a delay; the time between someone messaging/reblogging you and the time you get a notification e-mail is really long.

It's a huge relief that delicious is just moving, not closing. *sighs* I won't need to redo all of those bookmarks. XD

Sherlock Holmes!!!!!! I am going through and watching the Granada series for the first time, as well as the new tv show Sherlock. I have been sucked back into fandom again. :D

*clings to* Cliche-away, my dear. I'm... Well, I'm sad, but she lived a long and happy life, and stuck with us long enough to say goodbye. She couldn't speak, towards the end, but she conveyed her farewells nevertheless. I will miss her more than I can say. I'll probably be taking you up on that sweetie, and -- knowing me -- it'll be at an inconvenient time like four am. XD

Tumblr is irritating like that. >__> oh well, that's what lj and plurk are for. :D

I found a great alternative site, but it's not delicious and I don't like it quite as much.

I don't know what the Granada series is, lol. I do want to watch the new tv show version too XD BUT YAY, I'M GLAD YOU'RE FANDOM HAPPY~

*snuggles* Just remember that, and you should be alright. And take advantage of it at any time you feel the need, I pretty much live online. I'm glad you don't mind my cliche sayings, true though they are.

Ugh, yes. Tumblr can be addictive, but it can be pretty irritating too. I never plurk anymore >.< I'm still obsessed with my LJ though 8D
