Organizing Your Blog

Did You Organizing Your Blog Can Help Your Blog Views?

Did you know that organizing your blog can be really helpful to others trying to navigate your blog?

I started out early (very early) this morning with a simple task of adding a Travel tab to my blog. I will be doing more traveling and have done a lot in the past and it made sense to highlight it.

I added the tab to the top (after having to refresh myself on how to do that).

But from there it morphed into going through all the categories and  weeding them out, moving things together and creating new categories.   I actually had to make myself stop because I have other work I have to get accomplished today. But I have plans to separate my travel tab into vacations, conferences, reviews and organizing. I’m also going to bring over some of my reviews that I’ve done on my Explore Ohio with Sandy blog.

When I started going through all the categories, I realized that many older blog posts were not placed into newer categories.    I have many older posts that also do not even have tags. When they were moved over from my blogspot blog, I was told that tags weren’t necessary. I’ve since learned different. I’ve spent time going through some of my older posts and tagging them, but I’ve never made it through all my posts (over 700 now).  Obviously this is a big job.

I do need to keep working at it and I do plan to do more organizing of my blog.

For those of you who don’t realize it, I want you to know that I have drop down boxes from my tabs at the top. Just scroll over the tabs and you will see the drop down boxes with the categories. It makes finding your way to a post much easier.

 

 

I still have a lot of work to do on my blog, but wanted you to realize it is always a work in progress – as with most things we do.

    It’s easy for a blog to get disorganized!

    I agree…labels are important…but easy to forget!

    I love the blogging conference I’ve gone to and continue to go to… the problem is that I tend to learn too much. lol All the things I should be doing and don’t or haven’t done yet. lol Thanks Annette

  3. I always say that I should go back to old posts and update/tag/categorize them but it’s hard to find the time. Electronic junk needs to be organized too!

  4. Sandy says:

    No kidding! I’m the same way, there is so much updating to do. I’m working on mine again now. lol Thanks Rachel!

  5. Thanks for following me on Twitter. I checked this article out, intend to apply it, yea yea sure sure, and found it informative, and if I can translate it into action, it will have been useful too. Good post. I will be back.
