Organized Blog...Neccessary for a Community?

If I were to maintain a weblog, I’d like to make it like Piehole (http://www.liscious.net/piehole/archives/2008_03.php). First off, the organization for navigating the archives can be done through category such as: “Why I love Seattle,” “life lessons,” and “Website.” But if chronology is what matters to you for a blog then you can look through the blog’s archives via months. An optimal set up because I find I want to start from the beginning once I read some good posts.

As far as blogs go, this is as organized as a blog can get. If anything, the blog gets points for not making the user have to click to another page to find out about the author. In addition, we can scroll down-- focusing on the left side only--to join the mailing list, see who is on the blog roll (links), look at some personal photos, understand what program piehole used to build the website, donate to the blog, and learn new recipes. All this stuff is useful if one wants to get involved or start up with a community with the author because the effort put in screams, "I take my blog seriously. So Should You."
