@nitinkhanna I understand why you did what you did. My default WordPress post category has always been General even though the initial website (2013) was mostly about technology. I have over 3000 posts under General and over 1000 under photography.

@khurtwilliams That tells me that I’ve made the right decision. I went into the system to change to general and for some reason, it didn’t exist! So I created it, so I start from zero today 😊

@www.nitinkhanna.com 👍🏾. I don’t have a technology category. Perhaps I will add that.

@www.nitinkhanna.com I also like that your responses are flowing to/from your website. IndieWeb FTW.

@nitinkhanna That’s a good idea. I'd quite like it if the default was not to have a category at all, but that doesn't seem to be possible.

Or… I was going to say that mine is still set to “Uncategorized”, which I think is the default, and I don't like, and I wish the default could be to have no category. But it seems that now the default is to have no category. I wonder when that changed.

@devilgate Wait, new installs of WordPress allow for no category at all? That’s odd and interesting! I would love that. Uncategorized has always irked me as too ugly.

@devilgate categories (and tags) are important if I ever want to get a link to say “all my photography post”, all my posts about “macOS” etc. This is important when your website gets to 6000+ posts over a 15 year time frame.

@www.nitinkhanna.com Mine is far from a new install, but I just hit “New Post” yesterday, first in MarsEdit then in the WP console, and no category we ticked.
