Blogging: Keeping categories simple to keep readers happy
I’ve made a new post over at Blog Herald entitled “Keeping categories simple to keep readers happy“. I talk about what’s a great way to organize your blog’s categories, and I also use the categories that I have here at King Gary as an example.
Here’s an excerpt:
Whenever I write a new blog post, I always think about which category suits the post best. I keep the number of categories that I have at a minimal level so that an appropriate category for every blog post is immediately obvious to me.
My rule of thumb for naming categories is, if you’ve got two categories that can overlap each other in an obvious manner, then you’ve got to change something there. Either merge the two categories, or remove one and expand the remaining one. I also tend to review my categories every few months, and if I have a category with less than 10 posts, then I ax it and merge the posts with that category into another category.
