Labels. Or How I Seem to Have Missed the Point of Effective Tagging.

Day Three and I'm still blogging. Hi. My name is Jay and I'm still blogging...

In pursuit of all things blogginess, I decided to glance through my labels for this blog. Having done that, I then decided to click on a few of them and read a bit of my past writing. Sometimes, that's a good idea and sometimes, it's not. But that's not my point. The point is, I decided to glance through my labels for this blog and I discovered that my labels are useless in a Google search. Then I decided that was okay, because for the most part some of my labels rock. They aren't as good as the labels my friend Mary Ellen writes, though. I think I may outsource my labeling to her.

Having reviewed my labels, I offer you this ginormous cloud with some of my favorite labels. (Totally egotistical and self-absorbed? Yes. Totally lazy and a lameass excuse for not writing more? Yes. Totally new twist on a meme? Sure.) Some of the writing is better than most. In fact, I have to say, I'm especially proud of my coverage of the 2008 Presidential Campaign and I love many of the pieces I wrote as a result of noodling my navel while commuting.

I've barely looked at my label cloud. Maybe I should...

*loudly* Hi, J!

What? We're not doing that?

Oh.

Maya: Maybe...

LA: HI LA! Oh, wait... We're not doing that? Are we? I'm so confused.

ME said...

Is there any $$ in outsourcing labels to me? I'm looking for a less stressful job. I'm good with headlines, too, and once won a $100 in a slogan contest at work.

I shudder to think what's in my label cloud, ranting as I am wont to do.

woo hooo it's so nice to see you back in blogdom on a regular (hey three days in a row count) basis.
