Question about topics
« on: Jan 07, 2015 @ 10:15 AM »
I recently started a blog this month over at I dont have much content yet but I will soon. I have menu bars for certain subjects that I can categorize. I was wondering what to categorize something if its more like a misc. post?

While your blog will evolve, now is a great time to focus on your main categories and try to stick to those. Misc posts can seem like filler/fluff to loyal readers so avoiding those is a good strategy. But, they always seem to pop up so having a home for them isn't a bad idea if you can't avoid them.

What about having a very general topic? Like "Living" ?

I agree with Karen, I just recently re-vamped my categories and menus to do just this.

For something like a misc. post, if its something your passionate about, that really is about you, I would add a category that is just about you as a person. For me, I have changed my original "Mommy side" menu to "personal & family life" with my "personal growth" subcategory being the about me posts.

I then, chose to add in "parenting" (all things related to actually raising the kids), "the mommy side" (specifically for those things that are about being a mom - like taking time for ourselves, asking for help and other more specific mom issues) and "faith" (for those times I want to discuss my faith, and raising my kids in faith).

I hope this helps, good luck and I can't wait to read more.
