Some of you still aren’t tagging properly.

And you are using twenty or so tags, so I know you are trying.

15 tags total. If you place the post in a category that counts as a tag.

Use 13 tags and a cat to be safe. I was lazy and wrote cat instead of category.

You are all writing these beautiful posts and they are only posting to your personal reader stream when you over tag or don’t tag at all. You miss the general population.

That isn’t where the prisoners are in this case. That is where all the “random readers” come from that can learn to love your blog too!

Learn to tag properly.

This has been a public service announcement from HarsH ReaLiTy.


Example of some tags I use and sometimes reuse (note: you have to separate a tag with a ,)

blog, blogging, blogger, welcome, wordpress, writing, about, Denver, Colorado, harsh reality, life, love, women

  2. Tagging is easy – just make sure that they’re relevant to the post. I’ve removed some tags from a few posts from 2016, but don’t feel the need to add any tags to posts over two years old.

    On a side note, I’ve seen many bloggers add / change tags well after the original post has been published. The bait-and-switch con is needless, but it seems to be the modus operandi of self-described “successful” bloggers.

  3. Thanks for the reminder. I’m sure I’m not doing it properly, because I don’t put a lot of thought into it. I’ll try to make more of an effort. By the way, why did you tag women and not men for example?
