Reorganize categories & tags

I spending a few hour last night and this morning, finally finish reorganize all my categories and 80% of my tag, nope not continue any more , 80% is about most of the popular tag, the remaining tag mostly use only once, which i not going to waste my whole weekend on it.

so is there a need to reorganize these ?

  1. yes , this is a 4 years blog already, is time to do some clean up
  2. yes, consolidate into fewer category and make it flat , one level only, no more hierarchy category
  3. yes, since the tag feature is build-in now, reorganize it to work better with tag, example now in stead of different category, i can just make a open source category and tag each entry with more specific tag like PHP, Javascript
  4. yes, since the tag feature is build-in now, you need to tag your old post too, make it more visible to the search engine.
  5. yes , related post plugin now mostly is base on tag, in order to show related entries for your old post, you need to tag it too.

so i m using 2 plugins to reorganize my post
