Lately, I’ve been wondering about ways to improve the blog (in ways other than writing better/more posts). One of my principle concerns stems from the fact that the level of assumed knowledge varies significantly from post to post. Hopefully, the title and first few paragraphs do an ok job of conveying who the target audience is.
However, is there more we can be doing? We’ve been talking about using categories to label roughly what the difficulty level of a talk is, as opposed to just using them as glorified by-lines. I was thinking of maybe four categories: High School, Undergraduate, Beginning Grad Student, and Advanced Grad Student. As the categories are pretty broad, they would just be used as guideline. Would you guys find this helpful?
On a related note, is there any other use of the categories system that might be useful? I suppose if anyone had any other feedback on how the blog is going, this is as good a time as any to comment.
