Organize Music Files (2 posts)

    I'm really having a hard time organizing content on my website. I have a ton of recordings and songs that I have made over the years that I want to feature on my website. Should I create a post or a link for each .mp3 file? The files are not in my media library because of the size of some of them.

    I want to be able to organize by Artist. (Different bands/people I've played with)

    I've been trying to organize all the content on my site for a long time and I keep going in circles, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Just a suggestion, since you don't have them in your media library, you should probably write posts about them. Use Categories to create your Major organizational structure (band?) and Tags to identify different attributes (rock, guitar, ballad, fast, 90's, etc....)

    Really, it's up to you how you want to structure things, and WordPress is really good about custom taxonomies as well, but you probably don't need to go that far at the beginning.

    If you think of your blog as an online cookbook, each post could be a recipe in the cookbook, each category is a major recipe type (beverage, appetizer, soup, entree, dessert, etc...) and tags are things that you may want to search by (different ingredients, lowfat, holidays/styles, etc...)
