No, not the book I’m working on (well, yes, that too) – Not the house (well, kinda, a little bit) – No, no, not this blog, either (well, yes, actually, the inside bits)…
Categories. Ever wonder why my search box was so low down the page? So low, you haven’t even seen it yet? Because it was messy, that’s why. It was a hodgepodge of anything and everything.
When you start out blogging, you don’t really know what you’re doing, then you sort just add to that. My category nightmare has been annoying me vaguely for awhile, and I’ve been meaning to get to it, but it somehow seemed such a big job.
Surprisingly, though, it wasn’t.
You don’t have to edit every post you’ve ever written, you can just delete the surplus from the categories list. I did that and then I did the same for tags, removing reference to things that really didn’t make any sense.
I don’t mind a lot of tags, people search for things under different listings – sex, lust, nudity, erotic, love and romance (just using an example), so all that’s good, but it doesn’t need a gazillion categories, too.
Anyhow, yesterday while I was thinking – yes, THINKING – I cleaned up both categories and tags as a sort of mindless task that gets done at that sort of time with my mind elsewhere. It took less than half an hour.
Not bad, eh?
Now, I never said they were perfect and they will probably get tweaked again, but it won’t bother me to do so now. I’ll probably keep it low down on the page, too, I got used to it there. Or maybe not.
So… I guess not much from me today. Yes, yes, I’m working! Bye now.
Have a brilliant day, everyone.
