|i've been thinking to put notes with pics on some of my projects on a blog. but here only a sequential journal entry is possible. so there is no way to group posts by say a certain plant/project/month/year?. if you want to trace posts about a certain plant - paging thru takes forever. or is it possible to search blog by date or subject or some tag that i don't know about? (besides doing ctl F on a page).|

|Each blog has its own search engine so yes, you can easily group posts any way you like. I recommend using tags in your blog posts for what you want grouped and then later you can simply search for those tags and it'll bring them all up.|

|are you talking about <keywords> tags? that'll be a lot of work...hm-m...|
i can see that i can set-up a gazillions categories some private some public for searching: like '2013projects' could be a cat and then i'll need to put all 2013 projects into that cat?
is top catlist itself public?

|Just add something like "#2013projects" to the body of your post and later you can search for #2013projects and it'll pull it right up. No work involved.|

|You know, last night my family tried to explain "hashtags" to me, and I just wasn't getting it.|
Then, I Googled it and read about how it's used, and, I sort of started understanding...
Then you posted that "#2013projects" to Skylark, AND I TOTALLY GET IT!!!!!!
I went back to my own blog, and added a few key "#", then did a control F -- found every one of my keywords, LOL!
Thanks, Skylark!!!!!! (and Dave!)
P.S. Dave: you can put a space between words in the hashtag description, just not immediately between the # and the first word, e.g. "#2013 projects" will still find it...

|i am thinking of using multi-plant photo id's as hash tags - so that i can discuss the plants in multi-photos later perhaps and find all the posts related the them later, at once.|
wouldn't it be useful to get a list of hash-tags for each blog up-front (if it's not too long...)? so you know what the blog 'themes' are, perhaps?
when the blogs mature and get long they could be difficult to navigate.
i wonder what other people found useful as hash tags in blogs, besides month-year or some plant-group name, for example, like bromeliads?
