In the short time I have been blogging, I have learned much. The biggest lesson so far: check out blog editor features before you commit. I went with Blogger, mainly because of its apparent ease of use -- in hindsight, perhaps not the best choice since this tool does not provide the ability to sort entries by category. Had I known this, I might have chosen another tool, such as Wordpress. By the time I realized the limitation, however, switching was not an option as I had created several entries and didn't need the headache of starting over.
Maybe there's a workaround, I thought. Once again, the Internet to the rescue. A quick query made it obvious that others have struggled with this issue. The many fixes proposed include:
- create multiple blogs and rely on heavy linkages among them
- rely on the tagging feature of tools like Technorati or Del.icio.us
- embed a piece of custom code in your blog template to do the job
