I’ve been thinking of moving my blog to someplace else. Anywhere else. Blogger is always down for maintenance, my ID got stolen the other day and the tags, the main point of this entry, just drive me nuts.
When Blogger added taggability to this interface I thought it was pretty cool. Now, I’m not so sure. I like the autocomplete, but I shouldn’t have to try to trick it to make it take my options. For example, for my previous entry, I just wanted the word ‘candidates’ as a tag. I tried putting it in, but it autocompleted to ‘democratic candidates’. If I type the whole word ‘candidates’, it doesn’t matter, ‘democratic candidates’ will go in. Then, I’ll have to either make up a new tag that won’t autocomplete (like I did with ‘republican candidates’) or I’ll have drop down to the tag box, delete the word ‘democratic’ and then enter.
I’m really kinda done with this interface.
