“Waterfall Position” Cedar Park, 2016

こんばんは!Hello, how’s it going?

Tonight I spent a couple hours working on this blog, specifically the tagging of posts. I read a couple articles about different ways to tag, or rather, different philosophies and how to use categories and tags, but most seem to apply more towards commercial blogs, and not the traditional personal web log.

I’m not sure how I am going to organize the categories, since it seems like everything can go into just a few main groupings. That’s if I use the categories like a main site navigation. Which I am leaning towards doing, then using tags to group blog posts.

Ever since I started blogging daily, it has changed my way of thinking about this blog. How do I categorize those daily posts? At the moment, they are in a “Slice of Life” category… but this whole blog has turned into a “Slice of Life” vehicle… Occasionally I will have a movie, or product review, but these seem to be grouped in with the daily posts. However, some are stand-alone. This seems weird… I don’t like putting blog posts in multiple categories, but I kind of need to if I put different subjects into a daily post (which I like to do).

So… maybe the solution is in tagging. I’m thinking that may be the way to go… converting some of the categories into tags, and eventually the categories can just be down to one (which means I don’t need to call them categories). I will just have the blog posts, and then pages.

I guess that’s kind of back to an earlier, purer way of personal blogging, right?

It’s fun to think about! (I’m weird like that)

So, the blog work continues.

Today’s photo is of Anko, who, like many kittens, finds odd positions to sleep in. The one above is called “Waterfall Position” since it looks like she is headed down the falls! I used my normal Fujifilm black and white + yellow filter film simulation, then adjusted the tone curve, added grain, and slight vignette in Lightroom.

I hope you have a nice evening!

** UPDATE **
I’ve removed the categories from the menus and sidebars, and made the tags more prominent!

  1. I still struggle with categories and tags (on my cat blog). I’ve rearranged it a couple times, too. It’s a never ending upgrade process. 🙂
