WordPress 2.3.1 finally came to Fantastico on my Hostmonster account, so I have finally upgraded. I haven’t seen any problems yet. I’m hoping that most bugs have been smoothed over from the 2.3 release.
One of the things that I’m most excited about for this release of WordPress is the native support for tagging. I wrote a post a little while back on category cleaning for my blog. I used to treat categories like tags, but I’ve changed my thinking and the way that I organize my blog. I now have 1 category per post (unless I really have to go to 2).
Categories are like folders in a filing cabinet, tags are more like the index of a book, describing the contents so that you can easily find them later on.
After having used del.icio.us for almost 2 years now, I’ve found tags to be a really effective way of indexing my bookmarks. I can almost always find what I’m looking for very, very quickly. I’m hoping that tagging will come in useful for my blog as well.
