a primer before we start: i’m not advertising for wp. just making some observations.
wp has the category cloud feature; i’m sure many blogs offer similar deals. (my earlier post was based on observations of this feature.) basically, you enable the category cloud widget on your blog. then you create whatever categories you want for your posts. the more posts you place under a category, wp will use bigger & bigger font size to display that category. in essence, you’re “feeding” the categories with your posts to make it “grow”. which reminded me of those tamagotchi toys that were popular years back. you take care of your virtual tamagotchi pet by feeding/cleaning/grooming it so it’ll be happy. (never bought one; thought it was lame.)
i remember when i first enabled the category cloud feature on my blog. i would try to create posts to feed certain categories to make them grow bigger. (i don’t do that anymore.) little did i realize i was playing virtual tamagotchi, but with blog posts. who knew wordpress designed a video game right into the blog platform? and it’s free!
wow, i’m f~*ing weird.
on a happy note, i talked about how the dictionary in wordpress went overboard with the political correctness stuff in a previous post. to wp’s credit, they seemed to have removed the insanity. my screen no longer lights up when i type “ladies”. a small improvement, but a very satisfying one.
enjoy your weekend.
