Does anyone ever look at 'Popular Tags' in the Blog section? The most used tags for blog posts are displayed in a box on the Members' Photography Blogs page, with the Tag Top Something displayed prominently.
It looks like 365, Photo Project and 365 Project are the most popular. Not surprising - people who take a photo every day and post it, are bound to create more blog posts than others. And when using this tag consistently, it should then automatically become popular. I think Pete alone must be responsible for this set of most popular tags... (And the same goes for 'Bargh', obviously.)
Tags like 'images', 'photo', 'focus', 'digital' of course all make perfect sense. And David (discreetphoton) made 'Tamron' and '18-270' quite popular with his excellent series of test shots.
But 'bathroom' makes me wonder how it got there! Oh, hang on, I remember an EPZ member with a rather long-lasting bathroom renovation project. Okay, that explains it.
At first glance another one that makes sense - 'weather'. But it wouldn't be an obvious one to me. If I had a rainy picture, for instance, I'd use 'Rain'. A sunny image would logically lead me to put 'Sun' or 'Sunshine' among the 'Search tags'. But 'Weather'? Reminds me of the film with that robot, what was it called again - oh, I know: 'Short Circuit'. "Lots of weather outside today", says the Indian designer of the robot at some point. Hmmm.
The window with popular tags is a lot more fun when you're trying to combine two successive terms on the list. What do you think of 'Backlit Bargh', for instance? (Backlit self-portrait by Pete?)
'Camera Canon' and 'Landscape lens' make too much sense to be funny. But how about 'Water weather'? Could be a whole new term for rainy conditions.
Gosh. The things I think about. I should probably get out more.
Well, I have a long weekend out coming up, starting this Thursday afternoon, and I'm taking one or two cameras with me, so who knows - maybe you can expect some more photography-oriented blog posts soon again...
