Sorting the blogging

I’m trying to sort out the blog categories here. As I’ve started to blog more, I seem to have accumulated more and more categories which have posts which could easily slot into existing categories.

This isn’t just a sorting spree. Though I’ve been known to go on sorting sprees at home and online. (Seriously, I’m losing count of how many times I’ve sorted and re-sorted my DVD and book cases.) It’s also down to trying to do this blogging thing a bit better. It’s changed a lot since I first started a blog nearly 10 years ago. I don’t think I’ve really learnt much in that time about blogging. Things keep changing!

This time I plan to make an effort to keep up and learn. It’s the least I can do.

Do you think you can you have too many categories? I guess, too many will just serve to confuse people visiting. Though with this being a personal blog, my topics tend to vary wildly and I like to keep them somewhat sorted. Is Life a too generalised category?

Well, I’ll keep plugging away. Sort and re-sorting!

  1. I hear you. The ‘Life’ category is a dilemma I faced the other day. Possibly too general, but yet so fitting? Perhaps that’s where tags come in… I don’t know. Looking at your categories, they look extremely well organised to me :)

    • I’ve gone on a mini organising blitz, but every time I look at them or start a new post, I tend to wonder if I’m putting it in the right category.

      I guess every blog is different. Using tags is the way I’m going to use to try and sort things a little more. I know some people use multiple categories, but I found that a little messy.

      Blogging has changed since I first started!

  2. I think you’re pretty organised with your categories, but yes Life is a wonderful category! But, I also think that with personal blogs it’s an “anything goes” kind of thing so it’s sort of like inviting people to your online home. How you arrange the furniture and decorate is up to you really, we’re just honoured to be invited!
