Today, I gave someone a ride in my car and I had to apologize for being a car slob. I have some good excuses - have young kids who eat in the car, I'm too crazy busy to clean it up, it has almost 100,000 miles, etc.
Well, I'm also a tagging and rss slob. I'm not going to put the link in to it - but tagging and rss encourages my sloppiness. I need to change my habits and be a little more neater and thoughtful.
- Only stuff you need to find later or think is really fantastic
- Try to clean up delicious tags for stuff like mispellings, etc. - perhaps this might need some regular maintenace
- Think about your categories and try to be consistent
- Do a radical weeding of you bloglines - unsubscribe from any that you don't find real value in reading anymore. Reorganize the folders in bloglines. Try to find meta feeds or teach yourself how to use the tools to splice together feeds. This is my next personal learning area ...
Here's an excellent article from Alexandra Samuels on tagging tips.
