Yesterday, one of the random ideas was about posting blogs and in the comments someone brought up "tags". I didn't know I could do this and wanted to go back to create some. Up to this point I would try to remember certain words and search. This has been fine, but Tags would be better.

I hunted but could find no means of adding tags, so searched the Ideas for that post. Another post about writing a blog came up, so I looked at that. I was hoping for a screen shot that might point out what I was not finding.

Now I am disappointed in what I appear to be missing.
Here is the screen shot of the screen shot.

Here is a screen shot of what I get when I start a blog entry.

I am not sure what is wrong, unless I blocked something. Shrug! I looked at the list of blocked items and all I see are the social media icons I custom blocked, since I don't use them and don't like clutter. I checked my cookies and this site is allowed. Our operating system is Linux, (Fedora 20, I think... I don't remember how to find that), and Firefox 40.0.03 is our browser.

Thank you for any help. I wonder if I am just overlooking something. I've been known to do this.

That was an ancient article and I updated the blogs system after that. I revamped how entries are posted, and removed some of those features that nobody was using.

Thank you for the reply. I am glad to know I wasn't really missing anything. I noticed the blogs are not used by many. Is there a way to increase their usage?

I think most people just hang out in the forums, ideas and database. The blogs are there for the few that want them but I'm not sure it's a bad thing that it's not used more than it is.

Kim, to increase traffic to your blog specifically, you could try adding a link to it in your signature line.
