As a Blogger user, I have been desperately looking a way to categorize my posts. The previous solutions I tried were some twists with “Blogger’s blog search” and technorati.
I know I cannot count on Blogger’s search. I don’t
know why their search bot didn’t crawl my site. My blog
didn’t ping them?
And later, I depended on technorati. But later I found that my tags are
not perfectly hooked there.
Story went on so on and so on.
Now… I can rest in peace. :D
I’ve got a way to categorize in Blogger.
This way uses del.icio.us.
Here is how to put it in place.
Create a new del.icio.us account for your blog and just bookmark your
post giving “tags” which will stand as category.
On that page, adjust the sliders as you wish.
I use “Categories / tags” so that it will look more
realistic on my blog. :P
Sorting is as you like.
If you choose “list”, it is suitable to put on
“side bar”. “cloud” is more
suitable if you can make a new box at the bottom or top of the page. I
chose “list”, and it appears as you can see on this
And select “tag count” so that number of posts with
that tag will be shown.
You are done with settings. Let’s copy and paste the code
there into your template.
But let’s do some extra things in our post. This part is to
let your audience know the category of the post they just
read. And by clicking it they can browse other posts in that
category. (obviously. huh?)
Let’s make it conforms the technorati tag format.
Suppose that your post category is “gadget”, html
tag will looks like this:
replace username with your user name, of coz. :D
one more example:
for post in “joke” category,
so, this is the end of story.
del.icio.us. is delicious!!! isn't it?
