I think I've gone a little overboard with labels on my posts. My label list now looks more like a book index than a listing of categories. The detail is good in that it facilitates quickly finding past posts on a particular topic. But I now have so many labels that it is hard to keep track of them all. I've turned my label list into a cross-referencing nightmare. But as I look it over, I can imagine even more! For example, my recent post entitled "Spring" is categorized under "Literature," "Poetry," and "Teaching" (because it mentions my literature class. But I could also assign labels that reflect the Christian imagery in the poem, the specific poet quoted, the season referenced, and the homeschooling connection. Where does one draw the line on labels? It could go on and on. So now I am thinking of simplifying by trying to boil everything down to a smaller number of much broader categories.
On the other hand, the list-making, detail-obsessed, organizational control-freak that resides inside this deceptively laid-back and mild-mannered exterior probably wouldn't like that.
