Thank you sincerely to all of you who gave me feedback on how you traverse (or don’t) my blog contents.
I made some changes over the course of the last few days and thought I would share them here. This delayed me writing a post about Tony and the great sex we had a couple of days ago – but I figured that could wait 🙂
Here’s how my stuff is now structured:
Categories | I created a few new categories that better break down the type of writing I do. They are:
Affairs: The three relationships I had whilst in an open marriage.
Blogging & Opinions: Musings & opinion pieces, search term summaries, awards, and summary posts.
Dating: The stuff between my one-night-stands and my relationships.
Dating Fails: Online dating comedy, awful dates, and generally bad experiences.
Family & Friends: Post-split adventures, my son, stories about friends.
Marriage & Divorce: My ex-husband, my marriage, and my divorce.
Quick & Dirty Encounters: Short-term sexual or dating experiences.
Relationships: Posts about longer term dating I’ve done, or boyfriends I’ve had.
Sex: Stuff about sex or my sexual encounters.
I’m afraid not all of the categorization is perfect yet, but I’m working on it. Feel free to point out any errors or weirdness you find by using my “contact me” page.
Tags | I realized instead of my updating the “lovers” pages going forward with posts written about them, I could simply use tags for the key relationships worth collecting in one tag. So far, I have tags for:
Faraway Lover (my first real affair)
Johnny Id (A fellow blogger who for almost six months was my long-distance boyfriend. Our relationship was a romance, drama, and tragedy all rolled into one)
Tony (Posts are temporarily hidden…I’m fine and I think he is as well, but I need 24 hours or so before I bring them back up. Let’s just say my Google+ account has been permanently deleted as punishment for its great integration ability with other websites).
Pages | I have updated my “About Me” page which includes the content above and a link to the back story I wrote when I had my blog anniversary.
And some of my pages will eventually be retired as my categories and tags take over. But for now, they also list all the posts I wrote on these subjects:
I also updated the Awards page with two pieces of writing that I inspired. Hope you enjoy.
And finally, I added a blogroll of sorts – instead of listing all the blogs I follow, I listed the blogs of my most engaged commenters (as reported to me by WordPress). I will update it on occasion, should anyone manage to overtake them!
For those of you trying to find my old stuff, I hope this helps a little bit. And if not, well for once I may not want to hear about it, since this shit is really time-consuming. If WordPress could design a way to bulk remove categories and tags from posts (without deleting the category / tag) that would be really swell 🙂
