A long blog project is beginning now (which will likely mean nothing to you)
I’ve had a project brewing in the back of my mind for a while now, and I think it’s time to just go for it.
You see that little drop down menu over on the right side of this page that says Categories? Well, while it looks all nice and neat, it’s really a mess. The categories I’ve chosen for this blog actually make no sense to me at all, which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering I largely decided upon them at random. Plus there’s too damn many of them to be useful as a search tool.
With just over 450 posts on this blog and counting I’ve decided that I had better fix them now or forever be annoyed by the fact that my categories suck. So starting today I’ll be reading through this blog – post by post – from the beginning, and re-categorizing and tagging everything anew. I’m expecting it to take a few months if I average about 6 or 7 a day.
It should be interesting to see the changes I’ve made to my style along the way, and to revisit some of the old ideas I had. Call it a personal inventory of collected thoughts… or don’t, whatever. And don’t be fooled, I’m not trying to optimize my site for search or anything. I wouldn’t know how to do that even if I wanted to. I really am just a weirdo who wants his categories to make sense.
