New record! Fourteen consecutive days, managed to stick with it, 34 posts. I’m really not after just quantity, I’d like to be saying something interesting, if only to me. I did some experiments in searching, both within WordPress and via Google. It takes a ton of search terms for any of my posts to appear. But in testing search various other posts popped up and I’ve taken a look at a few other blogs. In the post about the only time I checked blogs were for technical information being published in a blog instead of more appropriately in the manuals. So I rarely looked at the more personal blogs and I have found a few that are interesting, noted a few for future expansion in my own posts.
I have now added some tags and gone back and updated older posts with the tags. Tagging is hard, deciding what tags to use (don’t want a huge set) and then deciding which apply. Having tags and categories seems a bit confusing to me and the idea of revising all my older posts to match some revised scheme would be a real pain. Too bad that can’t just be done on the Dashboard (maybe it can and I just haven’t found it).
So I’ll keep going for a while longer, but I am finding this takes a ton of time and many of the other things I used to do on a daily basis have been neglected. But I don’t want to let my posts slip or I might abandon it altogether. I know I’ve got hundreds more posts I can make and my exercise here is simply to get a lot of that written down, almost like a journal, but because it is public a little less personal and a bit more polished writing.
So we’ll check back next Monday and see what I’ve done.
