As I think about what categories to use it seems it would be a good idea to just brainstorm a list of what kinds of topics I will be writing about.
family experiences, outings, etc
cross-posting from social media (fediverse) accounts and thoughts on the fediverse
covid experiences as a respiratory therapist as well as opinions about treatments, general observations
general experiences as a bedside caregiver and specific techniques for interventions like intubation
how tos on the programming/ software side projects I am working on like setting up this blog and other self learning topics
things I would like to say to my kids in a long term format, dad advice
meditation and self hypnosis
personal development, nuerolinguistic programming
exercise plans and techniques
technology I use like phones and laptops
software like plex or apps
vitamins and supplements
things like the above that I would like to 'formally' research and write about for my own personal development
financial topics as I try to start down that path and overcome my associated anxieties
Category ideas as a result of this list
Tech (includes both software and hardware)
How-to / Tutorial
Self Learning ?
Fediposts (cross posts)
Initially most posts will be How-To as I document how I built this blog from tiddlywiki. As time goes by I really want to express my thoughts in a more formal manner and do a better job of learning by writing about the topics so Personal Development will likely be heavily used as the blog matures, especially since it will cover both meditation and exercise. Maybe I'll split it into Mind and Body (and Spirit?). Also as winter rolls in and another covid surge is immanent I will be writing more about those experiences.
Each category will have an index page listing first all the tags associated with it and then all the posts. So don't worry too much if a category like Personal Development gets too bloated since a visitor could just drill down with tags.
Let's get to it!
