As daunting as it seems to clean up your categories after months of them getting out of control, that’s the easy part. Hell, I changed the categories on over 100 posts, and it maybe took an hour total. Add to that the 5 minutes I took at the beginning of the month to plan out what changes I would make.

Categories vs. Tags: What’s the Difference?

Welcome to the first Bumblings Blog Tip of this month’s Be a Better Blogger challenge: clean up your categories.

And while you can certainly structure your own blog however you want to, there are certain things to understand if you want to make your blog as browsable as possible. In my opinion, you have three options: Use categories but not tags Use tags but not categories Use them both […]

The Weekly Write-Up: ApollyCon Be Cray
