How You Archive Reviews
When I first started blogging, I was going to be a YA book blog. But I didn’t like the fact that I would only be reviewing YA, which meant I would only be reading YA since that’s all I had time to do. This lead me to set up my archives alphabetically, which I modeled after another blog. At the time I thought that was a good idea and the best set-up.
The only problem is I’ve been blogging for two years, and now I have a hodgepodge of reviews. The list is becoming very long, and you don’t really know what’s what until you click on a link, unless it’s something obvious (either well-known or children’s). Even for me to go back in and update the list takes a while to find the place a new review belongs.
I am considering the fact that I need a better way to archive my reviews. I’m just not sure how I should categorize my archives. I review children’s books, MG and YA books, and adult reads of various genres. Should I separate them in this way, or do I need to break it down even further?
I don’t want to start making any changes until I have some input because you guys are the ones who go looking through the archives. I want this to be a better, easier process for users and visitors because I know how to find things on the back-end of the blog.
First tell me how you archive your reviews in the poll. If you use a different system than is listed, tell me your system in the comments!
