So far, I’ve been using categories much the way I’ve been using tags, and so the number of categories has grown pretty quickly.  While I would reuse many of the categories over time, I’ve still decided to organize a bit better now, while there are only a few posts to recategorize.  Here are the new categories I’ve established:

  • Home
  • Work
  • Finance
  • Philosophy
  • Cooking
  • Blogging
  • Exercise

I may add others as needed, but I’m hoping to keep the categories pretty broad.  I split Cooking off of Home, despite their being related, because I think Cooking deserves its own space.

If you have better organizational suggestions, let me know in the comments below.  This is my first foray into blogging for public consumption.*


* Not strictly true; I’ve had a couple technical blogs (one of which I still reference but no longer update), but I’ve never been able to stick with blogging before now.  I also still have my LiveJournal, but I mostly just use that for OpenID into StackOverflow.

Time Zone

Just a quick question for all you reader(s):  Does anyone know how to change the time zone on a site?  I can find how to do it on your own install of Word Press, but I can’t find if it’s possible on the free hosted blogs.
