What do you think about followed workflows, which is preferable

1) user, using search controls, minimize list of entries in Journal
   bookmark this entirely list(names it)
   share the whole list(bookmark)
   user can have several bookmarks
   other users see that 1st user shared some bookmarks and can open
   these bookmarks in theirs Journal(it could be separate icon like USB)
   (bookmarks could be useful not only for sharing)

2) there is no bookmarks
   user can share any object w/o bookmarking(e.g. by clicking star icon or so)
   other user see only one list of shared objects
