These days book I'm reading - Keep Going It has an entire chapter titled
You are allowed to change your mind”
He talks about how we are “afraid” to change our mind, as it (now a days) indicates “weakness”.
Some interesting quotes from this chapter :
I thought I was wrong about everything. I was wrong about that too.
If you’ve never changed your mind about something, pinch yourself; you may be dead.
.. be open to possibility and allow yourself to be changed.
(My full notes about the book here)
One of the problems I had when blogging was assigning Categories.
I can understand tags, there are usually a LOT (I assume that is expected.) I assumed Categories need to be “limited” - Somehow I started using categories and tags interchangeably.
That did not make sense.
Initially (pelican, nikola) there used to be one category for a post (and multiple tags)
But with hugo - even multiple categories are supported.
This added to (my) confusion.
I used to
grep categories in the older posts so that I can use consistent
categories. It was painful.
It never occurred to me to completely get rid of them. Till now.
Initially I had Categories and Tags are menus, so that readers can find posts that belong to specific taxonomy. But I am not sure how many regular readers I have.
So starting with this blog, I've decided to not use categories for the new posts.
I've also removed Categories for the old posts.
