While adding a few additions to the Blogging Steplist in the HereNextYear Club members area, I noticed I didn’t have a good description that differentiated categories versus tags.
Realizing it was already 1pm, I figured I’d better get some lunch. So, I hopped in my Jeep and made my way to the grocery store. After finding a Sweedish meatballs frozen dinner to salivate over (hey, it’s Friday! I’m allowed to eat some slop once in a while), I remembered I needed to get a new gallon of drinking water.
What did I do? I walked down the isle until I saw the sign hanging from the ceiling that had bottled water as one of its “categories.”
Then I chose the cheapest of the 4 brands of 1-gallon water jugs on the shelf, which happened to be the Safeway brand.
Inside that sentence are 3 examples of “tags.” Can you identify them without looking up the answers below?
- 1-gallon water jugs
Wouldn’t your blog look completely cluttered if you added every product on the shelves shown here to be individual categories? Of course. Re-look at how you use categories and tags when you make your next blog post and help people get to the great content you’ve been supplying.
