Although I’ve maintained a website for about 10 years now, I only recently started blogging (2005, IIRC). I began blogging on Myspace. Although the Myspace blog software was really only a quasi-blog (it’s really more of an online journal, like LiveJournal, than a blog), it was a lot easier to promote since it was tied into my profile and people could subscribe through their Myspace profiles.
But I digress.
When I finally ported it over to WordPress (on the wise advice of my wifey), many of the posts were simply tossed rather haphazardly into the MySQL database. They were, of course, thrown into the all-inclusive “Everything Else” category, but that’s it.
On top of that, the earlier versions of WordPress didn’t natively support “Tags”, only categories, so the majority of my posts (95% of them, I’d guess) were tagless. And I’m all about some tags.
A week or so ago, I decided it was time to organize them properly, tags and all. Some of the posts I had to re-read in order to figure out how to correctly tag them. Initially, the tags were boring “family”, “economics”, “chemistry”. But as I progressed, the tag naming got a little more creative: “Science, bitches!”, “OMG TEH DRAMA!!!”, “Egregious Use of the F-Word”, and the ever popular “Ass-hats”.
If you’re curious, have some time to euthanize, or are drunk, you may find entertainment in the posts associated with the following selection of tags. I’ll let you see if you can figure out what the commonality is for a few of them. (List is a limited selection of tags arbitrarily chosen for colorfulness — the full cloud of tags is in the right bar, below my Amazon widget).
Without further ado, in alphabetical order, I give you:
