Consolidated Categories

Yesterday to help ease navigation around Creeva.com I consolidated my categories.   I went from over one hundred to just having twelve.   I used categories kind of like tags, but not really.  I was using them for specific organization methods, but over time that becomes unwieldy – especially when certain categories are not relevant or used any more.   So yesterday was a big consolidation that literally took hours.

One side effect I noticed that alot of old articles managed to get re-crossposted.   I’m not sure why  since nothing I did should have called that function in wordpress, but it did.   It honestly is as much of a pain for me the author as much as you the reader on this different sites.   Hopefully though you will find it easier to navigate different categories around the blog.   I also added a ton of tags yesterday so articles should link together better and keyword search should be stronger.
