Best way to do tagging on content?

How would you go about creating tags against content on the fly? Use case might be creating a new Blog Post or a new Collection Items? Is this possible?

By on the fly, do you mean something like term extraction?

I'm thinking a field that allows you to list out keywords (and for those keywords to be re-usable for any further posts that get created).

We don't have a specific field type for tags, but you could use a basic text field.

Ok - we may have to create a new field type then. Within the Assets functionality there is the ability to tag files. Is there anyway that that data can be used on the front-end?

Those tags aren't exposed to the site currently, no.
