Do you still use "tags" on MyLot?

During my first few years on MyLot, I always used both pictures and tags on my posts/discussions. I thought the pictures drew people in, and that the tags would yield views from those who scanned the posts to the right of their own posts. Over time, I grew lazy. I still usually add pictures to my posts, but not all of the time. I no longer add tags, as I don't know how/if they help me or others. I like pictures, especially those taken by those who post. But I don't really pay attention to tags any more. Do you tend to use pictures and/or tags on your posts/discussions here?

@choijungeun Do you have a cell phone? I have a decent camera, but am learning to use my new cell phone to take photos.

Sometimes I'll put in a tag, but I don't think I've ever gotten a myLot post as a result in a search. Have you?

@TheHorse Now that you mention it, I do seem to recall those.

I used to check posts "to my right." But that feature apparently contributed to the error messages we were getting a couple of years ago, so they did away with it.

@BarBaraPrz The error messages? They were not fun.

I don't use tags, but I saw others tagged. I like pictures that are nice to see.

I enjoy a cool picture, so long as its taken by the author.

Yes, I always use tags on My Lot. Does this benefit? I'm not sure. Most generally I include a picture, not always my own.

@kobesbuddy Is it "digital"? I thought Nikon cameras were good.

@TheHorse If I can download a picture that would show more of what I am talking about in the post then I will do it. I may have used tags once or twice but do not remember using them here much.

I did in the early days. Sometimes I'm rushed and don't use a photo. Occasionally I add one later.

I always use pictures AND tags. The tags can help someone who wants to read the rest of my posts in a series or is searching for a certain subject matter.

I am just getting back into pictures from time to time as I make my way around newer technology. I faithfully use tags as it makes my posts searchable. I started tagging with the month about two years ago, so I can at least go back and see what I posted in any given month.

It would be interesting for me to go back and see what I posted two years ago.

I need to add more pictures - I just don't. I do put tags when I post, but not in the responses/comments. I don't think hard about it because I don't really know if it is particularly useful . . . but I do tag anyway (habit).

@TheHorse YES, to find my discussions just searching under "tagged discussions" instead of scrolling all those I wrote.

I am new to myLot after being away for 5 years, and I posted my first discussion today with tags and a picture. I think a picture can help people find the discussions they want to read and comment on, but I'm not sure if the tags are anything worth doing or not.

You can't search for photos, but you can search for tags. Photos may make a discussion look more attractive, but that is all they do.

I post pictures when I have something good or apt for the discussion. I always use tags for my discussions but yes I am too lazy to use tags for my responses. I have seen some mylotters doing it regularly here.

I try to use logical tags but they are mainly for my own use, often to check if I've written about something before. I almost always use my own photos or Vince's.
