Mining for the Daily Internet Gold

I have a route when I check the Internet, sort of my own groove:
Normally I run through these pretty quickly.  Speed often depends on the interest in the news and what Jay has left to peruse in the Link Salad.  Facebook normally goes quickly unless I'm trying to waste time (even though I pick my friends, I still see a lot of cat pictures).

Do you have an Internet groove?

Yes, I do, and now that I'm retired, it takes up more of my day which I consider a good thing. Not that I'm lonesome and bored - far from it, I'm very content - but that the internet to me is a global social event.

I check email in two programs, friends' posts on LJ, news sites, specialty interest sites (e.g., Ravelry), specialty blogs (e.g., Terrible Minds), cultural sites (several blogs out of Paris, James Gurney's web site), etc etc. And of course Jay's Link Salad.

I have far too many bookmarks, all carefully organized in iGoogle - which most everyone knows by now is being yanked in November. I'm trying to think of some way to create a home bookmark page myself. I sadly fear it's going to mean I have to type up all my bookmarks in html. I hope that will still work - open a live-link-list html doc and use it for my private Internet Nerve Center? I could probably manage it - I did the html for my own web page for years before the hosting co. dissolved.

If anyone has helpful hints about how to create one's own Home Page (thus circumventing commercial providers' shenanigans) I'd greatly appreciate them.

Thank you for the kind words, sir.
