Stan’s Obligatory Blog


Getting on the bandwagon

Filed under: — stan @ 10:35 pm

I see that both Karl Elvis and Laura Lemay are doing the Technorati tags thing on their blogs. Sensing a bandwagon, I thought I should find out more about this. Turns out that I’m already in it, and never knew it. My blog categories are all automagically turned into tags when I post. As an example, look at stuff tagged as ‘life in l.a.‘ and there we are.

Of course, putting tag links on posts is a bit of a problem. I tried editing some posts and inserting the links by hand, but that’s kind of a pain. Ideally, there should be some Wordpress plugin that just makes a footer on each post with links to the tags based on the categories of the post. But if such a beast exists, I haven’t found it yet. And I don’t feel like hacking Wordpress right now to add it myself. So this will likely remain a problem for a while.

And there you have it.

    Interesting stuff. What do you think it will accomplish? I’m trying to figure out if it is worth it or not. I suppose I don’t get the ultimate point, unless it is to drive people to blogs with similar posts?

    I think the point is to be able to find other blogs with similar topics if you are so inclined. We’ll see if that actually happens.
