Give Me Your Blogging Wisdom

Ok it’s been pointed out to me that my listed categories may not only be more than I need but rather confusing. I had actually been thinking about it lately to make them clearer and simpler. I like simple, I hate going to blogs that have too much stuff. One of the reasons I wanted to go with wordpress so much was to have the categories option and maybe I went a little haywire.

Here is a list of what I think would be good (some were just changed):

Rambling – my thoughts, ideas and basically the majority of what I do here.
Quotes – I’ve been posting quotes everyday for as long as I’ve been blogging.
Furbabies – When I post pictures or pots about my furbabies…they deserve a category of their own.
Writing – I like to do writing prompts every week and sometimes poetry but is it necessary to have a category?
Chuckles (previously Funny) – jokes mainly, silly stuff that usually isn’t my own writing or thoughts.
Memories – This was a recently added category because every once and a while I take a trip down memory lane but maybe it doesn’t need it’s own category.
New England – I think from time to time I blog about where I am from but maybe not enough.
My Fragile Self – Maybe I could use a special category when it’s specifically about myself but I guess maybe it’s always about me.
Frustration (rants) – When I’m angry, maybe not necessary.
Spirituality (previously inspiration) – Sometimes I like to post Buddhist thoughts and quotes.
Romance (love) – I often babble on about my boyfriend and all different thoughts I have on love.
Entertainment (a&e) – I talk about movies and tv a lot but does it need a category?
Wellbeing (health) – On occasion I talk about this.
HNT – I’ve been doing it every week so maybe it should have a category.

I would love anyone’s help here. What categories do you think could be combined? Should there be more helpful names? Give me your wisdom.

    Keep HNT and furbabies, I like the a&e and inspriation (now spirituality), you always need a category about yourself… and so on. Keep them all. You should see how many categories I have. I just choose not to display them on my page. it would take up way too much space.

    Thanks for the advice, as you can see I’m working on it but to really change it up I will have to move a lot of things manually which is a pain in the butt.
