Have you categorized all of your Hubs yet? Show us!!

    OK, so I just finished categorizing all of my Hubs (I have 31) and I wanted to let everyone know about it....you know, just as a way to encourage all of the other Hubbers out there to cross their category finish line, too.

    I took a screenshot of my 'All of your Hubs are categorized' message and thought that we all could post them in this Forum post so that we can all hand out some digital high-fives once each of us completes the categorization process.

    I know that I don't have like 200+ Hubs, but I found that Fawntia did an amazing job with the Categorizer that she built -- it was super easy to get my Hubs all put in their correct places.

    Of course, seeing Larry over there the whole time helped me stay motivated, too. smile

    I did all 162 of mine yesterday (not sure how well I did on about 30 of them), but this senior citizen doesn't have a clue how to do a screen shot.

    I think I'm going to have to give a quick tutorial on how to take and post a screenshot here in the Forums. smile

    What did you guys think of the process? Glad that you got 'em all done!

    Did you learn a little bit about Larry during the process?

    While I was going through them all I decided to clean up a few that weren't up to scratch, so I'm a few more steps away from hitting my 100th hub.

    I categorized my 370 hubs yesterday and found the process to be really simple. Like others here, I was impressed with how well the tool work and how easy it was to complete the categorization task.. I often direct potential freelance clients to my hubs as samples of my work and this category option makes it a lot easier to direct them to the hubs that are most relevant to them! Very cool.

    DJ Funktualposted 8 years ago

    Hey Larry / Hubpages,

    Started to categorize but found that Entertainment > Music > Rap & Hop-Hop?
    HOP-HOP?  ouch.

    Hip-Hop is the actual category.
    Hip-Hop & Rap is fine but not the other way around. 
    Rap is a very outdated word.   More of a verb than a genre. 

    Thanks, even though I'm the only one who prob'ly cares.

    1. DJ Funktual profile image84
      DJ Funktualposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Also, please add Reggae and Funk.
      Do we really need a Rock, Classic Rock & Hard Rock?
      Little Diversity Please!

      Lyrics should not be category as it is illegal to post someone's lyrics anyway.

      What is Regional Music?  Sounds like World Music to me.
      Every part of the world is in some region right? 

      Musicians & Singers?  wtf?  They all are one or the other. 
      How about Production & Sampling?  Got 17 hubs with over 1,000 views on this!

      Hi DJ Funktual,

      Great feedback!  I appreciate your comments on the music categories.  smile

      Thanks for noticing the typo with Hip-Hop.  It's been corrected.   I've added Reggae, Funk, and Production & Sampling categories.

      Regional Music has been replaced by World Music.

      Cheers,

      -Larry

        One more Larry my man and I can't believe we overlooked it.  PUNK
        It is essential for the many hubs on The Clash & Ramones, Thank You!
        Also, in lieu of the fact the sales of vinyl increased 70 % this past year, I think the category VINYL would also be helpful!

        1. larryfreeman profile image84

    Another suggestion I had about the subcategory for history was not to lump Australia and Oceania together.  I think breaking Oceania up into Micronesia, Melanesia, and Polynesia would make it more specific.  Also, give New Zealand its own category perhaps smile.

    1. larryfreeman profile image84
      larryfreemanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hi SweetiePie,

      Thanks very much for your request.

      In my view, any history discussions that are nation-specific should probably go in Travel & Places.

      For example, if you want to write about the History of New Zealand, I think that would fit nicely in:
      Travel & Places/Oceania/Australasia/New Zealand

      If you wanted to write about Micronesia, then you could put the hub in:
      Travel & Places/Oceans/Micronesia

      Will that work for you?

      -Larry

      1. SweetiePie profile image83

    DJ Funktualposted 8 years ago

    Now this the kind of thing that will make me wanna categorize all 250 hubs.
    thank you, thank you thank you!
    Larry, you are an All-Star!

    The only other thing I could think to add (if you have room) would be maybe by decade
    ~50s 60s 70s 80s 90s~
    As far as TV Shows goes, I would add these three....Science Fiction, Cartoons & Reality

    1. larryfreeman profile image84
      larryfreemanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I've added the following TV show categories:

      * Reality TV
      * Science Fiction & Fantasy (that's what I have in other places)
      * TV Cartoons

      I'm open to adding 50's, 60's, etc. to the Music Category but I want to think about it more.  As a rule, other than the History category, I've been trying to avoid decade-type categories.  I would prefer to organize by the music genres that were popular in the 50s, popular in 60s, etc.

      I'll post back here after I've thought more about it.

    Marisa Wrightposted 8 years ago

    I haven't finished mine yet, but I'm noticing the odd duplication and inconsistency.  For instance, there is a category for "Dance" under Performing Arts but there's also a separate category for "Ballet".  Unless there's a specific SEO reason for making ballet separate (is it more popular or something?), then it makes no sense - ballet should be under Dance.

    1. larryfreeman profile image84

      Hi Marissa,

      I agree.  I moved Ballet as a subcategory of Dance.

    Is there a sub-category for 'Inventions'?

    1. larryfreeman profile image84
      larryfreemanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hi darkside,

      The History of Inventions category is Knowledge & Education/History of Archeology/Major Inventions & Discoveries.

      Recent Inventions should probably be organized by the "type" of invention.  The current broad categories are:

      Technology/Audio & Video
      Technology/Communications
      Technology/Computers & Software
      Technology/Gagets & Personal Electronics
      Technology/Green & Alternative Energy
      Technology/Internet

    Hey, you guys,

    Today, I categorized all of my hubs, too. It really was quite simple. I actually enjoyed a new way of processing. I guess we do this each time we post from now on, right? {although I still don't know many of the 'ins and outs' [still learning] of blogging, categorizing may just be the thing.}  Larry was 'incentive' enough to keep it going. Best to ya...

    Cosmically,

  34. darkside profile image81
    darksideposted 8 years ago

    I've got a hub I've just published about Matches. I wasn't digging as deep as Archaeology (pun intended!).

    Stuff that was thought up about 50+ to 200 years years ago kinda falls between those two (chronological) extremes. For instance: zippers.

    Also, under Music could there be Musical Instruments & Equipment?

    1. larryfreeman profile image84
      larryfreemanposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hi darkside,

      I've added a Knowledge & Education/History & Archeology/History of Technology category.

      Will that work for zippers and matches?

      For Musical Instruments, check out Entertainment/Performing Arts where we have

      Brass
      Drums & Percussion
      Electronic Music
      Guitars & String Instruments
      Pianos & Keyboards
      Woodwinds

    Having done the categorization on my friend's laptop, I could have done without all the stuff about Larry as it took up a really major portion of the screen that would have served me much better by being used for the task at hand instead of being like an endless commercial that I couldn't get away from.

    Nothing personal, Larry, but I really hated that part of the categorization process.  It annoyed me 114 times which was about 113 more than I would have preferred.
