Reworking the Categories

I decided to take a little advice from the Tentblogger (John Saddington) and reshape my blog categories.  He asserted that natural themes will arise in your writings and those will help re-define or refine your blog categories.  Since my blog is titled “Snapshots of Everyday Life“, I have focused my blog categories around the Snapshot theme.

So…without further ado…here you go – here's my redesigned categories (well, part of them at least):

  • Creative Snapshots (covers web, photography, design)
  • Travel Snapshots (covers business travel, missions trips, and personal trips)
  • Book Snapshots (covers all things books – reading and reviewing)
  • Church Snapshots (covers thoughts on the church, faith, discipleship, elder experiences)
  • Leadership Snapshots (covers business, coaching, teachable moments)
  • Life Snapshots (covers all things left in between)

Question:  What do you think?  Good Categories?  Bad Categories?  Right Direction? Let me know, I really do want to hear your feedback.

  1. First of all, great work on continually working this! You should know that I am a big believer that if it works for you–it works! I would suggest that you look at the categories themselves. Categories are for organization and communication. With organization, I think whatever categories you pick, as long as they make sense, could have sub-topics to help with keeping everything organized. The second, communication, is important as you write about, try to attract new followers, or explain what you are trying to accomplish. With 6 categories, it would be difficult to explain in a simple paragraph or “elevator speech”. The solution could be to make your categories consistent. Right now, they are tactical (travel/books), places (church), and conceptual (leadership). I would encourage you to determine if you could simplify into larger, conceptual buckets (such as Spiritual, Development (your educational journey), the world at large, etc. The names, are of course, jsut to give you an idea. Once you have the 4 or so larger buckets (with more detailed or tactical subcategories), it will be easier to explain, understood by your followers, and (maybe) have less overlap. Again, if what you have works for you–it works for you.
