What's In a Label?
The lovely, shiny KNIGHT did a post last week about labels. A few people mentioned in her comments that it would make a great meme (I’m really hating that word lately) and they were right.
The premise is to see what, if anything, the labels you use on your posts say about you and your blog. I believe Knight called it looking for trends – she’s so research oriented!
So I pulled together my labels and this is what I discovered.
Out of 154 posts my most used labels are:
Animal related: 84
This included mentions of Mia and Siren as well as animal rescue, adoption, behavior …
I only use this label when I’ve taken the photo myself. The copyrights I’m infringing upon are not included. This label is a more recent development as I start to join more weekly photo projects. Speaking of photography – I just joined a photo team blog ‘ The World in Black and White’ – click on the photo on the sidebar and check out some great photography.
I actually wish this number was higher and I think it will be as I get more and more worked up over the crap I read and hear – and personally experience – related to the election.
This is just the best writing exercise ever invented in the history of written communication – including cave drawings! Check it out AT RAVEN’S NEST
Those are my big categories – I like animals and photography. I’m interesting in politics and writing. Oh and I like long walks on the beach and my measurements are …
sorry, the tape measure broke.
There’s a bunch of single mentions and a few Craig Fergusons (he’s dreamy). I refer to ‘Life’ 19 times but who the hell knows what I meant any more.
I label simply to be able to find crap later. A friend told me I should label to increase traffic.
So I think I’ll label this post:
naked firefighters, girl on girl action at volleyball games, get free pot here and – Cindy McCain confesses to having sexual fantasies about Obama (click here to find out – Barack or Michelle)
Oh and – this isn’t a meme! But what if I labeled it – Earn Money for Memes.
I’ll never know
