Blog Categories and Aggregators

Do you blog? Aggregate? Do you use secondary categories?

In an effort to keep our own posts organized by topic, we've tried additional blogs, multiple and secondary categories. We can get things somewhat organized locally, but what about aggregators seeking relevance?


It's something I looked hard at for Fullasagoog. The only way to do it properly is to set up an aggregator specific taxonomy (assuming we all aggregate for different reasons :) and get authors to use it in their categorisation -- the other options require too much editorial intervention. As it is, I spend a lot of time adjusting the Goog feed, talking to authors and the like to try and keep us on topic while still maintaining that sense of personal connection that permeates the blog world -- poetic, huh?

I talk about this sort of thing a bit lately (http://blog.daemon.com.au/archives/cat_fullasagoog.html)
