New Tags

Ok, so here’s a quick one. I have added tags to most of my posts at this point and the tags are collectively listed at the bottom-left side of the main blog page. Most of them are self-explanatory, but I do feel the need to explain two of them.

First, I have used the "About Me" tag anywhere that I have included general information about myself. This information may be about past events, opinions, or just random facts. Thus, if anyone is asking themselves “who is this guy,” the “About Me” tag will aid them in figuring out factual information either about my life or about what “makes me tick.”

The second tag I wish to explain is the “My Heart” tag. Every post I write definitely reflects my heart in one way or another. However, some of them just stand above the others in reflecting the things that touch my heart more than anything. These posts reflect the deepest “cries of my heart,” as the saying goes. This is not to say that others don’t “pull my heart strings,” but these are especially dear! Thus, the “My Heart” tag, will aid anyone who is interested in figuring out the things that touch, mold, and shape me, at the deepest level (or bored enough).

Now, you may be asking why in the world I am including these (or why I’m talking about them). Well, I realize that the entire blog is about me in one sense. However, I will occasionally include some self-reflection. The main reason I include these reflections, is that I feel they add to, or help to further explain, what I am trying to communicate (or why I perceive things the way I do). Beyond this, I also realize that they serve a second purpose. By including these reflections, I am leaving a “paper-trail” of sorts, with all kinds of little “info-bits” describing who I am. This makes it easier for someone who doesn’t know me to learn a little more about me. It also makes it easier for those who do know me, to know me at a little deeper level (since these types of reflections don’t find their way into “normal” conversation).

So, if you are bored and have nothing else to do (or perhaps actually desire to delve into the insanity that is me), these tags may help you get to know me a little better. Otherwise, just enjoy the easier indexing provided by the others ;)
