do you label?

I didn't... label my posts that is, until now. For some reason I just didn't look at that space when posting. I. didn't. even. see. it.
So... I actually just finished going back a year+ through every post I've written on this blog, and added labels to them all. It took a few sittings... but I finally did it! Now, I can just click on a label and see what I've written in the past. Take my advice, if you want to be able to look back, start labeling now!


Labels for this post:
e.g. scooters, vacation, fall
Show all

  1. hmm...I thought about doing this. That would be a LOT of posts to go back through but I guess it would help down the road if I want to reminisce about something specific!

  2. I used to label all of my posts. But then i decide to streamline my sidebar and label just the general ideas that the visitors might want to read more about (not everyone wants to see five years of my kids back to school pics, but they are interested in how to make money online, or our home before and afters, things like that).

  3. I do use labels, or tags, and I find it useful. It also increases traffic and pageviews, if you're interested in that, because people can see a category to click on. It did take a little while to add all the labels to the old posts, but not THAT long.

  4. I only recently figured it out too. I really need to do it now because sometimes I write about things I've already written about, lol. Yay! Another project...

  6. It is a good idea. I use them all them time, but I probably need to go through my posts and update them. I just backed up my entire blog for the first time! I guess I like to live dangerously.

  7. I've labeled from the start but I see I am not consistant. Sometimes I will leave a word out when it should really be included. The widget I have under my posts groups your posts according to your labels or so it says. That's kind of fun too. :) xoxo
