I removed categories from my blog today. I did this for some reasons:
- I need pagination. But there is no neat way to paginate in categories index.
- I can focus on writing but not thinking which category I should put my new post.
- Tag is enough. Though index by tags is not available now, I will figure out a way.
- It keeps this site more simple!
Cause I did not index my posts by categories, the urls have changed a little. Maybe it will affect Google’s index and my blog’s search. But since my blog is relatively new, I will accept it. (It is not a big deal since I’m thinking about change my site’s domain).
By the way, I’m not good at html and css. Other open sourced jekyll site helped me a lot. Especially the source code of my old colleague’s blog. When I have some questions, just look at the source code and it will be clear.
