Four New Categories Added

Those with a sharp eye may have noticed that I added four new categories to this blog. The new categories are as follow:

For whatever reasons, my most popular posts are always the ones where I post about my monthly blog earnings. Therefore, I have taken all the posts from the Making Money From a Blog series and put them in its own category. In addition to that, you will find other posts about making money off the Internet in this category.

I’ve also setup a separate category for WordPress. I get many emails asking where to get all the WordPress Plugins I run on this blog. This new category will make those Plugins easy to find.

The new Review My Blog and ReviewMe categories are a value added service for reviewers and advertisers. By creating a new category just for them, I make it more attractive for advertisers to order up ReviewMe reviews (which is running a half price coupon this month) and bloggers to write reviews on this blog.

    Looks good, John. My goal for the rest of the year is to actually post some content in the categories I already have. LOL!!!

      I think that should be a goal we all should shoot for. Damn those categories 🙂

    John Chow has me posting on a nothingness post about his BLOG CATEGORIES, how do you even do [email protected]?

    Whatever it is, its workin for ya Mr. Chow.. I think his secret is the multitude of daily updates..

    One of the biggest challenges for me surprisingly is creating a suitable number of categories and then categorizing the posts I write because some of them cover over 2/3 of the categories and it looks as if they aren’t all them are parented to my posts .


    1. Jane May says:

      I actually just went through that myself. Since I have 2 that fit many of the posts, I just decided to put them under the broader of the two.

    I noticed the change…John. Looks great!!

    I like the addition of the “make money from a blog” category. One time I had to use the “related posts” section to go back month by month to see them all.

  8. Leftblank says:

    Nice to see those categories added John, it’ll finally help to keep your blog ordered and easily accessed, in the past I had some trouble finding the posts that were related to each other (as your plugin isn’t too precise).

  9. Good move – it’s good to be organized. But I think bloggers need to be careful not to have too many categories – that’ll just get messy.

  10. Of course that would be the most popular category. I think it’s the main reason we all visit your site and wish that someday us mere mortals may join the ranks of super blogger like yourself.

    Looks good, I didnt notice yet hehe

  12. Jeff says:

    Good selection of category names : those should be really good for SEO… wordpress category names can do wonderous.

    My website shows on #1 on Google when you search “Hot Issues BC” for that reason. 🙂

  13. Steve says:

    Looks good, thanks for reminding me that I need to setup categories on my blog.

  14. Jane May says:

    I like the organization this adds John. You are constantly thinking of ways to improve. Great Job.

  15. Marc says:

    Always good to improve categorization. My site’s in desperate need of it. It seems that the to do list grows every day 🙂

  16. Terry says:

    Good job. Nothing beats organization! 😉

  17. Nate W. says:

    John, you always are on top of the ball. Now you just need to use your mad skrilla and buy some of those cars you always feature. Let’s start a rival TV show to Top Gear and call it, “Top Chow.”

  18. Dylan Duarte says:

    “Make Money from a Blog” has got to be the most useful blog category ever.

  19. Thanks for this heads up John – I was going to email you myself about your Top Commentators plugin, because I couldn’t find it on the Codex.

    As always, a valuable resource – thank you! 🙂

  20. Samer Bazzi says:

    Great idea to break it up this way. I think a lot of people are interested in the monetization of thier blog. Thank you John!
