Categories using 1 extra blog
Another new method for categories from Rangga. This one a manual method, but clean and easy nonetheless. If you post occasionally, and aren't too bothered about additional exposure from tags, this would work out great for you.
  1. Have a regular blog full of uncategorised posts.
  2. Set up a second blog to serve as your category manager.
  3. On your second blog, have one post per category.
  4. Edit each single-category post to include a link to the relevant posts on your main blog.
  5. Add a link to each of these category posts to the sidebar on your main blog.
Pretty cool! A bit labor intensive if you're a ten-posts-a-day person, but good for the low-volume blogger. All done w/ HTML too, so no CSS or scripty knowledge required.

Any SEO penalty for linking so heavily to another site that also links back to you?

i don't know, but applications like these add to the weight on blogspot's servers. plus with blogspot servers going down every now and then, i don't know how reliable it is ...

my opinion! :)
