Simple Blogging: day 13.

OK so since I'm kind of in a hurry to get things caught up , I need to get right to the topic!
Use tags, but not too many.
Or catigories, or as Blogger calls them, "labels." I have this problem with my linkblog in particular, I think I have like 500 of those things floating around. 500? How'd I get so many! I probably really only need about 100 at the most. I really need to get rid of a lot of them, and yeah I definitely should've made more of an effort to do this before the Blot migration! I do have some tags still here from when I didn't have a linkblog and so I was doing what I called "weekly links." The thing is, you probably only need about 2-4 tags in each post, (maybe 5 at the most.) This is not only for archival purposes, but for search as well. When you're going back to look for a post, if you know it's tagged under one thing you can search for it. However, if you have 800 posts under that you may not want to look through them all, so you might want to try searching for a tag with fewer posts in it. It's also for reference purposes, here are all my posts tagged "31days."
