The end of the world or at least the end of an era (also a request for feedback)

For the past two years I have been using Maple the Palm Pre as my cell phone–quite happily I might add. At first it was necessity because the Pre line of phones were the only ones that I knew would work with my computer that were also available from my cell phone service provider.

Over time, it was going to become a conscious choices as I liked my Pre phone and had no desperate need to get an iphone. At least, I didn’t until a week ago. You see, my phone line has been discontinued and is no longer supported which leaves me little choice but to cut my losses and move on with my next phone upgrade. After years of avoiding them, it seems that an iPhone is in my future.

So, now that my choice of phone is up in the air I’m thinking about all of the things that I was taking at face value here on the blog.

In other words: I want to re-organize some things but I want YOUR feedback, dear readers, since you’re the ones who use that part of the blog.

First my Review Index is in need of reorganizing. The plan is to either organize it by the author’s last name OR by the first letter of the title. The question, then, becomes which is preferable.

Similarly, I’m planning on adding tags to my blog posts (after four years of blogging). Now, here’s the thing: Retroactively tagging all of my posts is huge undertaking so I want to be sure that someone (besides me) will think it’s helpful and I want to know what tags you, as a reader, think would help you. Title, author, publication year? Key themes? Category (book review, graphic novel, etc). Other things?

Hopefully, you can tell me and I can get these reorganization plans rolling.

One thought on “The end of the world or at least the end of an era (also a request for feedback)

  1. Well, as a minimalist tagger, I’m not the best person to make suggestions about how to tag posts.

    For the review index, I’d prefer an author listing and a title listing on separate pages. I know it’ll mean more work for you, but since you can nest pages and do custom menus on WordPress (at least, do menus on some themes), you don’t have to worry about cluttering up the look of your blog and visitors can still find what they’re looking for.
