Blogging Lessons

Going back over the history of my blog and inserting labels is demanding but I'm biting it off at the rate of about 100 a day, so it will take less than three weeks to finish. One thing I've noticed, and I apologise to those of you who have been with me for a long time, is my tendency to multi-subject posting. It will make searching much easier if, in future (and I may find I've already settled down a bit but I hadn't by 2005) I try to keep each post about one separate thing. My tendency to want to include a joke, if I can think of one, each time is going to make for over-use of the label 'funny.' Funny that.

like the new look, very green and pleasant. Have borrowed your idea of tags as a cluster rather than a list, and wondering if I have far too many categories!!

I like the cluster thing. Is that easy to arrange?

Oh man, I've got to get around to tagging.

Nice long list of blog links...including me! Thanks!

The 'Wordle' at the top is a one-off, occasionally generated, piece of art.

The labels cluster is easy to do (I did it, it must be). Assuming you are using new blogger (with google apps) Go to the 'layout' page and choose 'add a gadget.' Scoll down to find 'labels' and select 'cloud' as the display option.

Then simply add your chosen label(s) to each post. Type carefully in the labels box as misprints (as I found out yesterday) are hard to change.

There is a good article in the help forum.
