Category Mistake

Sigh. When I began this here blog, it never occurred to me that I’d find myself, three and a half years and 680 entries down the line, desirous of a better organizational system. I had this cutesy tag line — novels, networks, and some stuff inbetween — and I thought, well, there’s your categories right there.

But now I long for real categories. Categories like “teaching.” Like “running.” And so forth. And I’ve created such categories and gotten them all ready to use. But here’s the rub: there is no way, at least as far as I can figure out, to do batch category changes in ExpressionEngine. And what that means is that if I’m going to change my category structure, I’m going to have to do it one entry at a time.

The mere thought of this is enough to make me start contemplating an engine change. And a site redesign, while I’m at it.

None of this could have anything to do with the batch of papers I don’t feel like grading, could it?
