I think the coolest part of having your own URL shortener is that you are always using your own domain as part of the URL.  Even though you might be going to an outside site, the link you give ties to your URL.

Adding a bookmarklet to the bookmarks bar makes it easy an quick to create the short URL — much more convenient than going to another website, copy/paste the URL and then copying the shortened URL to your document.

Very cool.

    I like the idea of being able to control my own shortened URLs.
    As I said last year, the convenience of the bookmarklet eliminates the need to go elsewhere to shorten a URL.

    I used the subdomain that I created for the purposes of Domain camp, but I will create another instance for my proflisak.ca and start using that.
