The labeling of my blog is a mess. Frankly, I have known this for a long time. Don’t ask me how I got to here. I guess for years and years of blogging, I have been not only building up my opinions by writing, but also creating a space (lots and lots of labels) to hold them and define them. Now the labels have become a wild and untamed monster who is completely out of the control.
It’s annoying. Knowing that the labels of my blog do help to sort different things out a bit, there are still too many overlaps, too many cross references and too many categories.But in regards to its function, I say it’s little.
However, I have been too scared to touch them, as I know once I open the can of worms, I will have to spend hours and hours (or days and days) to go through all my posts to fix the problem. Mind you I am talking about 994 posts and 49 labels so far, and I doubted if I really want to go into that sort of trouble before I have a clear vision about what I am about to do and what goal I want to achieve.
To be honest, I am not seeing that. It would be extremely hard for me to see anyway, as my blog almost covers everything you can think of that happens in one’s life. Please note that this is not a self-boosting statement, it’s a pain.
Organising my blog is almost as hard as organising my life. Some aspects are easy to define, like food, art, knitting…; some are just too vague to fit into a label or give it a name. It’s almost similar to clean the clutters in house. You have to dig, haunt, toss all your past out and go through every item of them to decide if it’s unwanted or find it a new home.
So I have been debating in my mind….do it or not do it? I had a feeling that one day I would get to the stage that I can no longer stand it and when the time comes, I probably will make some revolutionary changes and shake the whole world:-)
And I know, that day, is better to come sooner than later, as the longer I leave it as it is, the harder the job would get on that particular day.
So, anyone has any tips about how you organise your blog labels?
