I've been playing around with making categories on my blog... something I wish blogger would just automatically support. The first fix, which was to add code that would use blogger's own search capacity didn't seem to work at all... not because the code was wrong, but because blogger's search engine seems to be very, very odd.
So, I did some more research and discovered how to us delicious (http://del.icio.us
) to create list of categorized posts. So, if you've tried clicking on my category links in the past week, you will know they weren't working very well. If you try clicking on them now, they will be.
I'm still deciding whether I should categorize every post, or only posts I think are particularly interesting. As of right now, I'm thinking every post, but I may delete a bunch if that turns out to create an unwieldly list.
I have decided that it's important to annotate the list -- so each entry in the category list will have a bit of a descriptor beyond the title of the post... hopefully to help people in searching for a particular topic they might be interested in.
