Consider yourself warned… I’m about to start some serious construction here at Erik’s… Hmm…
I’d like to start by enabling categories, and then start displaying them. Since I started this blog I’ve assigned a category to each of my posts. The problem is that I’ve got 25 different categories. Is that a problem? Is there something wrong with too many categories? One thing that is awkward with a ton of categories is that if I decide to display them in a “nav bar” on the side of my page the list will stretch way down the page (way down is being used here to mean “a very long list that doesn’t look good”). I’ll use the help of one of my favorite MT sites to get the category stuff figured out.
Once, I’m happy with my category implementation I think I’m gonna do some work on the “nav bar”. I might even add one to both sides of my page. I’ve got a lot of content I want listed in my “nav bar”. I want to get a flickr badge created for my site. I’d like to add a blogroll. Now that the links from my regular commenters are being counted by Google I’d like to give them some credit via a blogroll. There are other changes I want in my “nav bar”, but the part of my brain where those changes are stored has gone to sleep so I’ll just add them here in an update tomorrow or something. (Yes, I know I started rambling there…)
Anyhow, consider yourself warned. I’m gonna be making changes here and things might get a little ugly. Hopefully, in the end I’ll have a better product.
