A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

I've just updated the Magical Sheep bookmarklet, which enables you to create easily code for tags to copy/paste into your blog posts in order to get your posts to appear on the tag pages of blogosphere search engines such as Technorati and Icerocket. I've also updated my original post about how to use the bookmarklet.

The original code was too long for Internet Explorer, which doesn't like long favelets code (though I don't know if IE 7 will be better on that front) - but recently archiver cleverly compressed the code (here's how) and I incorporated those changes into the updated bookmarklet. Here's archiver's version - it inserts an extra "t" before the tag, which I don't personally use.

Don't forget you can also add tags to your posts using the Magical Sheep Greasemonkey script for Firefox, which is my own preferred option. But if you'd rather use Internet Explorer as your browser when you blog, then the bookmarklet may be the quickest way to do it.

You can as before customise the bookmarklet code to add your own "meblogging" tags - see my favelets page.
