Tagging experiment

I’ll be the first to admit I’m a little behind with tagging. At first I didn’t get it, but I’m starting to see benefits. I can’t articulate them entirely yet, but after I play with them a bit more and really start to use the concept across some applications hopefully I can define the usefulness of tagging a bit more.

To start, I’m going to use del.icio.us much more. I had an account a while back and used it briefly. I do have massive amounts of bookmarks though in Firefox. So, my natural first thought is more on a personal level as opposed to the social aspect of tags. If I can somehow organize and categorize my bookmarks so I can find them easier, this would be a good thing.

Also, I often stumble upon links that are interesting and I want to share on my blog, but not necessarily write any comments on them. I’ve found some plugins for WordPress that I’m going to try out in order to post these links to my blog. We’ll see how it works.
