Some months ago A year ago a friend of mine got a Yubikey. Not giving it any use, he agreed to give it to me if I helped him tag his blog posts.
Last night I started doing it. 6 hours and hundreds of posts later I gave up. Not only the editing system in Posterous (yeah, he uses that) is buggy, it also doesn’t allow for multiple posts editing even if just for tags.
Wait, that’s not just it! Every time I finished with a page of posts I had to keep pressing the “show more” button. It got to a point that, to reach his 2011’s posts my fingers ached with so much scrolling. Posterous, Y U NO use a “next page” system, or a view/edit by month? Something else than forcing the user to end up with a huge ass page, please! Ugh.
Anyway, after giving up and telling my friend what posts I edited and tagged he told me he was going to go back to some and add even more tags. This leads me to my learned lesson and conclusion of this post: one does not simply outsource tagging blog posts. Tags are something personal.
P.S.: If I see another food post I swear I’m gonna scream! D:
