Tags and categories seem to provide pretty much the same functionality on blogs. The only difference I can see is that a blog typically has a handful of categories, but may have hundreds of tags.
With that, does it make sense to even use categories anymore?
I’m thinking not, so I’m going to go with a bit of an experiment. Posts are still going to be put in categories, but I’ve taken off the links to the categories and no longer show what category a post is saved in to. In their place I’m going to try and be more liberal with tagging.
Any thoughts? I know that I typically look for a tag cloud on blogs to try and find what I’m looking for.
