Best way to categories your articles?
I was thinking about how people categories their articles. On Mark's "enlightenmentgateway" site for example, he he has like 7 different categories with articles in each category. The problem I see in doing this is that people might not stick around as long as they otherwise would. They're probably not likely to go through every single category and look at every single article to see if there are any they might want to read. So while there might be an article in the "mind power" category that they would have probably read if they had seen it, they might not end up reading it if they don't happen to go into that category.
Mark's "Wowblackbook" site on the other hand, doesn't have categories. However, it's easier to see all of the articles on the site. So, you can quickly see all the articles right away without having to go through categories (which a lot of people probably wouldn't mess with). This way people might end up seeing more articles that they would like to read that they possible could have missed if they were in categories.
It seems to me like that would be the best way of doing it, unless you happen to have a lot of articles. Then you would have to categories them some how. But, if that's the case, wouldn't Mark's "dogobedienceadvice" site be a better way of doing it? It has a dynamic menu that shows different categories and articles and it changes every time you click on something. This way you keep seeing different articles - some of which might grab your attention, and some even related to what you're already reading.
What are your thoughts about this?
