Oddities as I do the conversion

As I work my way through the content of the site to get it ready for the January launch of the new look and feel of the site, I am oticing that the tag cloud looks a little odd. It has some of the strangest emphais on some words and not on others. A brief look through the site shows the actual reason, a lack of tags.

Apparently I didn’t tag things very well - some posts have no tags as you can see below.

Thinking about it, it makes sense, as I was not really tagging at all and using the categories to find things when I wanted. I guess that will have to change if I want the tag cloud to be of any use. I should go and make sure the categories are all working as expected. That would be another item to add to the list.
