Changing categories for a new framework

If you’ve been away for a while, you will have noticed that a lot of the blog categories have changed. I’ve added categories to the top menu bar in an attempt to make finding older posts easier. I think I’m on the right track, but I have a looooong way to go before I’m even remotely happy with how the blog is organised. While I’ve been making the changes, a couple of things have popped up.

Firstly, I’ve realised that a couple of the categories are terribly sparse. The Indigenous Poetry category has only one post. ONE POST!!! With so many incredible poets out there, how can I have been so slack all these years!?!

Secondly, some of the categories are a little confused. For example, Indigenous Media category, has all manner of posts in it that perhaps only vaguely could relate to a topic called Indigenous Media. What on early was I thinking? In the Indigenous Media category, I would like to feature independent media sources, like the Koori Mail, NIRS, Brisbane Blacks, Torres News. So watch this space!!

I’ve been writing on The Critical Classroom since 2009, and it suffers from being a passion project that gets neglected while I go off trying to make a living. I would like to spend the next few months giving at least five hours of my week to The Critical Classroom. I think it deserves a bit of love and attention now. The blog is also not responsive, which means it’s a bit difficult to read on mobile devices. When I moved the Critical Classroom to self-hosted WordPress, “responsive” was still a novelty, now it’s a must.

Please be patient while I build a new framework. Any suggestions and ideas, would be most welcome. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and G+.
