De-Categorizing the Blog

The Editing Chainsaw

The first day of the Intentional Blogging Challenge was today and our assignment was to write (or rewrite) our About Me pages.

The last time I touched mine was back in 2010, so the old version definitely needed some tweaking. It still mentioned the Mega-blog that I created when I rolled everything back into the domain and the ongoing construction (that to be honest is always ongoing).

I’ve been meaning to do away with the Subblogs for a while now and rewriting the About Page (aka Mission Statement) was a good way to sort out my priorities. At least beyond the basic: See Horses, Read Stories, Learn Things mantra.

This does mean some of the Category tags will be moving around as things consolidate over the next 21 Days, but it should make for a cleaner site when I’m done. I’m going to miss the old category icons, but it’s time for a change… and since it’s my site I can always change it back again later! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For posterities sake, here’s the icons code that I pulled out of the main index page…

	if (has_post_thumbnail()) {
	} else { 
		$category = get_the_category();
		$print_string = '';
		$print_string = $print_string.$category[0]->cat_name.'';
		echo $print_string;
