I love my WordPress.com blog, even though I sometimes have trouble deciding if I should post the geeky stuff here or on Climb to the Stars. The only thing that really bugs me is that if I don’t want to have to type in all my tags by hand, I need to use Flock, and it’s horribly slow on my OSX machine.
Would you kind WordPress.com please give us built-in tagging capability? No, categories (or keywords, for that matter) aren’t bloody tags. Even if you can create new categories on-the-fly, without going to a special “category administration” page.
Just add a field named “tags” on the posting page, like my Bunny Tags plugin does. Hey, steal the code, the idea, or adapt it if you think it doesn’t suck too much. But we need somewhere to just brainstorm tags in instead of checking a pre-defined list of categories.
Bonus question: would you rather have me post geeky stuff over at CTTS? I’m a bit afraid of boring my non-technical readers (hi, Grandma!) with all my still feedback posts.
