Making labels

Other than catching (up with) Stellou twice for brunch, the weekend has been filled mostly with the implementation of the massive project of assigning labels to all my old blog posts. It's very much going to be a work-in-progress for the next couple of weeks (at least!), because working backwards, I've only completed up to July 2006 so far.

Also, I haven't yet executed a massive republish command that will update the right-hand navigation for all extant webpages, so don't consider the contents of any particular label to be comprehensive.

Which reminds me that I wish I could rename "labels" to the more intuitive "categories" that Wordpress uses, but Blogger won't let me do that with an non-Blogspot site. Poo!

Aha! So that's why bloglines keeps getting all these old posts on as updated on your RSS feed.

Since you're on New Blogger you don't need to republish - pages are dynamically generated.

I've finished April 2006. I don't expect to finish before the end of this year :P No hurry lah

Chris > Whoops, forgot that all the republishing would affect the RSS feed. I wonder if there's a way around it, so that the RSS feed only carries the latest (new) posts and not the republished (old) ones.

Agagooga > I'm publishing my blog to my own domain name, plus I'm using my own customised template --- so quite a few of the new Blogger functions like template layout and widgets and whatnot don't apply to me. Had to add the list of labels in the right-hand navigation menu manually!

Whoops. And the RSS problem affects me too. No matter - they can delete the old posts.

I tried migrating to the new template format for the goodies but YACCS breaks it.

Will "anal" be a tag?

It's actually been fascinating to read your old posts as you update them, filtering the not-so-distant past through the lense of the present to see how things have changed and stayed the same, from the perspective of a reader.
