I’m cranky, I tried to deny it but it’s become obvious and I have to acknowledge it. Last night I went for a bike ride with Nate, even though it was maybe 50 degrees. This should have been a fun ride but I was bitchy the whole time, frankly I’m surprised he didn’t push me into a ditch and ride off. I wish I could blame it solely on the War with Winter but it’s really an accumulation of things.
How you can help? Well! I’m glad you asked! 🙂 One of the things that’s making me irritable is categories and tagging on the blog. See those categories under “Writin'” at the right? Well WordPress lets me assign those to my posts and they are unlimited, but if I used as many as I want it would be a VERY long list. I wish they were more like flickr’s tags and displayed in tag cloud. I would really like to add more tags. For example I’d like to tag all of my posts about Wicked with a “wicked” tag, so later I can easily find them all, but you can see how after a year that is gonna be a LONG list of tags. I realize this is mostly like the librarian in me, but what can you do. I’m trying to figure out if the categories and tags are more for me or if my readers use them. Because that affects the solution. Here’s where you come in – do you ever click on those category links in the sidebar? Do you like them being there? Will you be terribly angry and leave hateful comments if they go away? Do you wish there were more of them? Or will you not even notice if they are gone?
