When I first started this blog, I didn't see the need to put labels on my posts. But the other day, I realized that there are a lot of aspiring authors out there who read this blog for writing tips, and they should get to access them easily. Now the wisdom behind labeling posts makes sense.
At first I thought I would have to go through and label each and every blog in my archive one at a time -- well, there are over two hundred in there and I wasn't too thrilled about that. But then I discovered this handy dandy trick, for those of you on Blogger.
Go into Edit Posts. Up will pop a list of your blogs. Decide what label you want to start with -- for me, it was writing tips. Go down the list of blogs and click the box on every one that fits within the category of that label. Then go back up the top and click on Label Action. Up will come your list of labels, you click on the one you want to use, and every blog you have checked will now bear that label. So much faster than doing it one at a time!
If you haven't created any labels and don't have any in your label box, you can create one by simply putting a keyword in the box at the bottom of the text box when you blog. It can be anything -- you make it up to be personal to you. As soon as you do that, it will show up the next time you click on Label Action.
And there is your blogging tip for today -- and I shall now label it "Blog Tip."
Now tell me, isn't it great to have all these posts labeled? You can find a complete list of my labels on the sidebar (scroll down . . . down . . . there you go.) Happy surfing!
