I love the site and really enjoy all the projects, reviews, blogs, and such. Have you considered breaking the blog postings into two categories? One for project instruction or progress and the other for the regular blog entries? While I enjoy both, it would be easier to use the blogs as a learning tool if I could scroll through the projects. Just an idea.

It would also be easier to locate similar blogs if I could do a keyword search on blogs same as projects.

do you use the ”tags” for your searches?

tags are great—if people tag their postings, that is.

Thanks. I didn’t see a direct link to blog-tags from the blog tab. I was able to view them through the Project Tab/Tags/View More Tags then select either projects, blogs, or forums at the top left of the page. Perhaps they just need to put a direct link to Tags or Blog Tags from the Blog page. Or maybe there is one and I’m not seeing it.

This also brings up another question. I have been entering tags in both my projects and blogs. However, those tag names do not show up on the list. Yes, you can type in keywords like ‘Weather’ or ‘Weather Station’ or ‘Station’, but these choices are not listed. So the question is how is this list updated?

While I’m at it, it doesn’t look like you can tag search on Reviews? Maybe so. I don’t see it.
