There are 29 categories on Wisdump today. 7 of them have 5 posts or less associated, 13 have got less than 20 posts. Several are completely redundant, probably great ideas when Scrivs ran the show, but the Wisdump I took over last year neither was nor is his playground. Categories like 9rules had its place back then, but today it’s a mere archive of Scrivs writing about his project.
Which brings me to which categories next Wisdump should have?
In my mind, you should always keep the number of categories to a minimum. It makes things easier for you, and it opens up opportunities for special styling, branding, things like that. Tags have effectively replaced the categories when it comes to show exactly what something is about, now categories are meant for sorting, and tags does the pinpointing.
So while I won’t delete any categories, which would be silly, I just won’t use them all. I’m thinking something like this:
- Design Critique
- Web++ or similar, don’t like the ++ thing
Perhaps a few more, which ones? Here’s your chance telling me what you want more of here at Wisdump. I’m all ears.
