Blog Tagging — Going Overboard
I was just taking a quick look at my RSS Feeds and, specifically the Security Bloggers Network. I enjoy having a compilation feed, so that I don't have 50+ feeds to go through. I came across the latest post from the Technology Security Blog and was appalled. Half of the post was Tags for various services... del.icio.us, livejournal, technorati, icerocket, etc... Because it's an RSS feed, the HTML formatting that decreases the font is lost and we're left with these in the same font size as the article. Now, even with the font size is decreased, they are still overkill. I look at the website for the blog and it's these lists of links. Now maybe I don't get tagging... I don't mind Alan Shimel's list of like 10 at the bottom of every post (but his blog spans a good portion of the page so the line is longer, making for fewer lines used)... but I can't stand seeing a page where there are more Tags than content? Is anyone else finding this trend ridiculous?
