in general

For the longest time, my ‘default post category’ in WordPress has been ‘tech’ – a decision I made when I started writing more about my software work and ideas than anything else.

I realize now that that was a mistake. The default category should be general, so that when one starts writing, the immediate bent should not be towards technology but rather life.

It also allows me to permit myself to quickly open my blog and just post a photo. This is something I do not do, but want to.

So here it goes. Now the default category is set to general.

What do you think?

    • 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 😊

  1. @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.
