Oh, my. It seems people are still having trouble with their categories. Here’s an example I found the other day:
- I’ve Been Thinking
- Some Blog Stuff
- More Blog Stuff
- My Thoughts
- About My Car
- Dreams and Wishes
- Useless Information
- Left Over Junk
Raise your hands. Who thinks these are effective post categories? Hmmm?
Instead of me telling you why these don’t work, you tell me.
