Thank you for your comment on my blog recently. I came by to see what yours is about. It looks interesting! Just one thing though that might help…I notice you have a lot of tags and categories. WP has this stupid rule that if you have more than 15 tags+categories, your blog will not appear in the reader stream for blogs that are followed. For instance if I follow you, I will never see your blog in my stream. So if you want more regular followers, my suggestion is to reduce the categories+tags <= 15. Just thought you should know! Hope to see you in my stream sometime. – lauramacky
Thanks very much. I just recently became aware of the issue with the Reader, though I was not aware of how it would effect followers. I am trying to keep the tags under 15. I was actually considering doing a post on the tags issue; it is another example of an Implied Space. The tags do not differentiate form from content or types. If one composes a complex media piece that overlaps a number of forms and then also interconnects several different subjects you hit the magic number.
Implied Spaces is a term that derives from art and architecture. It has since expanded into the area of 3D modelling and the concept has implications for Mass Media, literature, sociology and other cultural studies.
Implied Spaces tag
ideas in global web
form versus content …
Haibun combines thoughts
in prose and verse, haiku-chains
link to global web …..
add an image too
the mix of media grows
like a tanka swimming through
photographs on the eye’s edge
Responding to Support Forum – the post was a complex piece and I was trying to cover both form & content. Actually, I think that is a limitation with the tags. Some tags such as poetry, tanka , haiku & haibun describe specific forms, but not content. Other tags, such as fairy tale, folklore,or jazz deal with content. There is no way to be specific and narrow down a complex piece.
Because I incorporated a video piece I specifically created, I checked out another blogger who regularly creates such pieces to see what tags he used, then used his tags as a template. He is obviously in the same situation.
The 15+ is intended to block spam because obviously more than 15 concepts could never meaningfully interconnect like stands on a spider’s web.
Once the room is completed and put into use, a spider takes up residence in one of the upper corners of the room. It constructs its web in this space. This was not the intended purpose of the corner from the point of view of the designers, builders or occupants. The upper corners are just implied spaces that are a consequence of creating the room. That does not stop the space from being used by the spider. ( See About Implied Spaces page )
The potential of a Mass Medium!
AN IMPLIED SPACE !
Be Sure to Get Yours Today !
It is just waiting to be occupied
by those who can put it to use.
Available where new ideas are found.
Tag you’re it !
No your It. I don’t want It.
It is too complex.
It is like a spider,
but more twisty
soft as a jellyfish
with butterfly wings
mixing metaphors at the Bar.
I will hide now, try and find me.
