*Looking For Your Input -- Reward Offered!*

What do you think of the labels at the ends of my posts? Are they helpful? Are they annoying? Do you care one way or the other?

Let me know what you think.... to encourage you to give me your opinion, I'm giving away a stack of patterned papers cut into 6X6 squares... I'll draw two names on Sunday from those who provide their opinions on the labels!

EDIT: By the way, the labels I am referring to are the links below each post .... you click on the underlined word in the label and it takes you to all the posts on my blog that I've applied that label to (for example, if you clicked on Prima Flowers in my last card post.

EDIT: The blog candy is no longer available! Thanks for checking in!

I personally like the labels. I use them on my blog too. I think it helps find something that you saw and want to remember later on when you're looking for it.

Nancy said...

If I had a blog I would probably use the labels too. They are a helpful tool.

Cheryl said...

I like the labels too--actually I didn't know the purpose until I went back and clicked on one and see if brought up every post with that label. Very neat--I like it!!!!

Cindy Keery said...

I like it when people use the labels feature, but I don't particularly care if I can see the labels at the bottom of each post. I like to be able to see a list of labels/topics in the side bar so I can click on "stamping" and see all the stamping related posts.

Laura said...

I like the way you do them at the end. I know they are some work (it's hard to think of all the little things), but especially on the last post - I wanted to know who made the baby bum stamp. So cute. I appreciate them...if that means anything. :)

Jennifer R said...

I love the label idea. Please don't get rid of it!!

Toni said...

I've never actually used the labels. But it looks like they are helpful.

Leah said...

I think they are very helpful! TFS! :D

Peggy S said...

I like labels a lot too - esp when I am looking for something in particular that I know you have highlighted on your blog! It's definitely great to see an organized/user friendly blog.....

Allison said...

I like them...of course, I use them too and I hope they help people find things on my site!

Jackie said...

I like the labels - it helps if I am looking for a specific thing rather than having to search through all of the posts.

Penny said...

I love the labels. I use them to find examples of how many different ways to use a punch, for instance, before I buy it. Very helpful. Thanks!!!

Tami said...

I like the labels and now that I know what they are there for I will use them on my own blog (I didn't know that's what they did)

stampin_melissa said...

Truth be told Nancy, I hadn't noticed them! So that is what that block is for when I'm writing my post???? *eye roll*

Now that I'm educated, I'd say that they are a great tool for others to find things on your blog. :)

imteresa said...

I like the labels. I don't use them often, but I do really like the logic of them. Please keep them!

jodene said...

I musi say I like the labels.I never knew what they did,but now that I do it sure makes it easy to look up some ideas for a specific thing.Great ideas,I say keep them!!

lois lane said...

I hadn't noticed the labels. They don't bother me one way or the other.

doverdi said...

I guess I'd have to admit that I like the labels too. It certainly does make things easier to find if you are in a hurry or looking for something specific. Definately a helpful tool.

CAKVD said...

I use the labels! So I like them. Thanks!
Cheryl KVD

Linda Shaw said...

I think they are useful to your readers. I refer to them mainly for the names of the stamps used. I rarely look at the less significant items like what brand paper, ink, etc. was used.

Jen said...

I love the label idea and I think it is very cool, but I have to be honest and say I never have clicked on one yet.

Tracy.H said...

You know...I had no idea that those were even there!! Yes, they are very helpful. Although, it looks like a lot of work ;0)

k.m. said...

The labels are just fine.....I use them......

I like the labels and use them all the time. I like to make sure that I didn't miss anything exciting.

I live the labels. I use them on my blog too. I would say keep them!

Nicole v said...

Hi Nancy,
I like the labels. I think they are helpful when a reader wants to see what you have done with a particular product in the past.
I know it's a bit of work... but please keep them!!
Thanks,
Nicole v

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

kathy said...

I like the labels because it makes it easier for your readers to find different things you have created

Creative Expressions by Stephanie said...

Ohhh wow I actually never even noticed. I am happy you pointed it out & yes I think it's great & an easy way to refer back. May even have to add them to my blog;)

Thanks:)

Kathi B said...

The labels are nice to see how you categorize things but I typically look right past them.

Shannon said...

I personally like the labels ... if I am lacking inspiration I can click on one and see how you used patterned paper etc etc

Great to see you tonight.

Dawn Mercedes said...

naaaah...I never click on them...

kansmom said...

I think they are great! easy to find something pertaining to primas, tuts or a card made with a certain stamp! altho with my google reader I can just 'star' something and it saves it for me. anything to help my aging mind! lol

Starr Mercer said...

I've never used the lables...but now that you mention it, I think I might use it. So I'm torn...sorry that doesn't help much.

Peggy Maier said...

Very clever - I like clicking on the label & bringing up every post using that word. I think I'll be using this a lot - wish everyone had it.

mjb coffee said...

Well, I finally know what all of those words stand for, as I had no clue. You are never too old to learn!!! Keep them, now I can use them!

ikkinlala said...

I don't mind the labels, but I use the search feature more often. I do like how your labels are so specific - it makes it easy to look for inspiration when I'm trying to use a particular thing.

KOstvig said...

I cant even find what youre talking about so I would have to say I dont care for them or they are unnoticeable. I looked for anything that said Prima Flowers I dont see it but I bet right after I post I'll see it and go oh I love those.

Jan Scholl said...

I don't pay any attention to labels on blogs. I never do them on mine either.

Jana Weaver said...

I like the labels...think I need to add them to my blog!!

And hey, Sunday is my bday, so Pick Me!! ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend,
Jana

Lisa C. said...

Hmm..I don't use them that often, but I do like them. I like being able to go back and see other posts you have made about that same thing.

Anonymous said...

I think the labels are helpful also.

Hi Nancy, I never use the links. I seem to check back so often, that I dont need to do that. I keep a book of the great ideas, so I dont have to hunt them up later.

Mo Moss said...

I like the labels. I can use them for referenc. Thank you.

Bettina said...

The labels are a nice idea - if your card has a cool way of doing something, like using the new giga scallop oval punch, it's nice to click on the punch and you can see other posts with cards using it. I also like how you have links in your text to other blogs that inspired you. It's alway awesome to find another blog to read.

Janet B said...

I think they are helpful. They make it easier to find posts.

Thanks, Janet B

Lorie said...

You know what? They don't bother me at all. If it helps you keep your posts organized then do it. But, if it is more of a hassle then just cut it out. Not much help...am I?

Angie said...

Love the labels but man that's gotta be a lot of work. Will support whatever you decide!!

Melanie Kuzik said...

I personally like the labels also as they are helpful. Love your blog and wish your son a very happy BD

Whitney said...

I think you should keep them. They aren't in the way, and they could be helpful!

Jennifer James said...

I didn't realize what those were for until you mentioned it, it is helpful. I will have to utilize them more.

Gerrie West said...

I really like the labels as it helps to see where these items were used and how they were used. Also will tell me who makes the supplies . Real kewl Nancy . Hugs Gerrie West

mara g said...

I like the labels.

Julie said...

I really like the labels -- they help a lot, and I don't find them intrusive. It lets me know that you are paying attention and want to help us to really use your blog!
I urge you to keep them.
With enthusiasm!

Steph said...

I use the labels, I like the labels, but I'm not sure I care one way or the other because I read all the entries anyway. I guess though that they are useful for finding things if you want to search for a specific technique or tutorial that you saw.

Natalie said...

I appreciate the labels because I can see something else that may pertain to the subject just addressed.

Debi said...

Labels are very handy to find more info about a particular subject... Thanks for sharing!

Laurie said...

I love labels on blogs that I've just discovered. They help me find crafty topics of interest without having to spend hours and hours combing through.

Paula said...

I like the labels. They make it easier to find out more info about something. They're a helpful tool and time saver.

InspiredByInk said...

Hi Nancy,
I don't use them much, but I'm sure they would be good for someone who might be looking for a specific post they saw. I could be that person one day! hehehe

Keep em!

thanks!

Carolyn S. said...

Nancy, I like the labels. They are very useful when you are trying to find something or want to find out more about something. Your blog is great. Thanks for sharing.

Kristine said...

Well, I'm not commenting to "get something"...I just wanted to tell you that I added labels and now I LOVE them! I rearranged all my labels and added the labels list in the column to help me find my own stuff easier. For instance, all my cards made with Penny Black stamps are labelled Penny Black, and Whipper Snapper etc. And then all my SU ones are labeled by the name of the set, and all my RAK's are labeled RAK. This helps tremendously and I wouldn't go back for anything. But, I can see that you must have removed your labels...everyone's different. If that's not important to you, then don't use them. People organize in different ways. Good luck figuring out what works for you!! (maybe you already have!) :o)

Yosha said...

Yes I find them super helpful! Especially when I remeber a card but the next time I try to find it I just can't!!! So much easier when you can pick some probable labels!!

Also you have a lovely blog!!! Love to see all the great cards!!!

Cat said...

Jenny Hill said...

Nancy - I think they are great - I am pretty new to the stamping world and when I see something in a specific card, it is nice to be albe to check out some more that use the same technique.
