For the curious, here is a peek into the encyclopedia of tags on this blog and the OCD mind that uses them.
babbling about books – book reviews, officially and unofficially
Books – uh, all the things? Quotes, reviews, lists, the whole kit-and-caboodle.
Budget – I forgot I had this one. Apparently I’ve talked about money before. It’s here.
Captions and Comics – funny things I found on the internet that I shouldn’t have hotlinked because it’ll probably be gone when you go to look at it.
Caution: Hard Hat Area: Work In Progress – unfinished works, whether it’s myself or my writing. Occasionally silly, possibly sappy, sometimes a rant.
Characters – my own or others and times I’ve written about them
City of the Big Shoulders – please understand this reference.
Dreams – the ones that spill out of my brain and others
Family – the best.
Friends – also fantastic.
Goals – involving writing, life, and some probably unrealistic things
Home – possibly the sappiest tag of the bunch
I Love The Internet – because it makes me laugh
Letters – this is the collective of everything missive
Letters To Home – 95% factual writings from yours truly
Losing my sanity – self-evidencing
Lyrics – honestly, that’s it
ME TOO – true things that are also funny
mountains out of molehills – a rant is in here somewhere, probably.
Movies – here is where I’ll say something about things that go *boom*
Once Upon A Time – beginnings, whether it’s a genuine first-line-er or just writing advice
On Writing – writing advice, where the best stuff is probably not mine
Poetry – duh.
Quotes – from anywhere and anything
Reading – if this was a Venn diagram with the ‘Books’ tag, it’d just be one big circle.
Ready.Set.Write! – cool writer things I’ve participated in
Remember Me – a time for everything, including this
Requiem – a bit quiet, a bit serious, a bit nostalgic, and a bit heavy on the goodbyes
Road Trip Wednesday – another cool writer thing
School – forever student, remember?
Sunsets – //these are a few of my favorite things//
Tell The Truth Tuesday – a 5-true-things-today post that ran for a while. This still pops up every once in a while on (yep, you guessed it!) Tuesdays
The Green Bomb – [spoiler alert] it’s a car
The Telly That Ate My Life – and is eating yours, too
Things With Equivocal Accedence – a word-snob [/sorrynotsorry] way of saying that the tagged post is questionable, open to debate, not quite what I believe, or less than 100% true or recommended. You’ll probably find this on quotes or songs that I liked but aren’t for everyone.
This Is Love – part friendship, part faith, part what life looks like when God is teaching me to be not selfish
Travel – I don’t just wander Chicago
True Story – the line between fact and fiction is drawn here. If it’s tagged, it’s mine.
What’s Up Wednesday – more wonderful writer things
Work – because I love it [not kidding] and sometimes I write about it [also not kidding]
Writing – if it’s tagged like this, it’s a) me talking about writing or b) my actual writing. Not all things here are real.
Writing Songs – the music section is a lot of “Hey, I love this!” but this tag is “Hey, my story loves this!”
YouTube – welcome to the black hole of the Internet.
