For some reason, during my short trip in the elevator in this morning I had this thought…
“Categories are for articles, tags are for images.”
It made sense then, and it still does.
I was reminded of this tonight when my wordpress told me I have 101 categories but nil tags on my articles. I can live with that. Because I inundate my flickr and redbubble photographs with tags.
What are your thoughts on this issue?
I think categories are like the table of contents of a book and tags are like the index.
If I just want to browse I will use the category/table of contents and look for things the peak my curiousity but if I am looking for something specific I will use the tag/index to search
Hello Shelley. Then, in essence, we agree. I also use the ‘category cloud‘ to find topics of interest.
