One of the new features is the label feature for posts. When you create a new post, you have the option of adding labels to it that describe and categorize it. I'm in the process of going through and labeling our archived posts, but have created a "blog categories" section on the sidebar with the most popular categories. You can now access all posts within particular categories through that. It would help if as we created new posts, we tried to all use the same categories. A post can have multiple labels since I know it is hard to limit how some of them are categorized. The most common labels that I have used are - Blog Stuff, Book Discussions, Church, Community, Culture, Emerging Church, Events, Fun Stuff, Gender Issues, Politics, Social Justice, Theology, Weekly Round-Ups, and Women in Ministry. I know that some of those are very broad - like I use theology to refer to most things religious, biblical, spiritual, philosophical, and strictly theological. Gender Issues not only refers to general discussions about gender roles and the like, but other gender related issues like health, beauty, sexuality, and homosexuality. Anyway, I hope the categories prove helpful and aid discussion.
Happy blogging and Happy New Year!
