5. Ideally, I would like to tag all my  blog posts. However, thousands of my older blog posts (pre-2011, from before my blog moved to WordPress) still have no tags. I want to change that, which goes surely, but rather slowly 🙂

6. I have 1,787 tags at my blog now. Sometimes, I find out that is a bit too much. Eg, yesterday I discovered that I had both “Botero” and “Fernando Botero” tags. I changed that, so now they are all “Fernando Botero.”

7. Which search terms brought most visitors to my blog, ever since it moved to WordPress in December 2011?
