Lost you way on my Website? Can't find a review or book list? Don't worry , I have had many cases like this lmao and this lead me to making a special page whose only purpose is to guide a newbie through my Website. I will try my level best to help you all out but please if you have anything to ask me , then use the CONTACT section to reach me. 

WHAT ARE CATEGORY/TAGGED POSTS?

I have a huge amount of posts. Like HUGE, When you visit the homepage , you see them all together and arranged in the order of when they posted under the "blog posts" category as shown in IMAGE 1. Now what about when you want to see posts that are only of the latest cover reveals? or book lists? or excerpt reveals? For that we have "CATEGORY / TAGGED " posts. Posts can be given tags and then when clicked on a tag link , you will see posts of that tag only. These tag links are available in my MAIN MENU at the top of the page and also throughout many places on the home. Here is where they can be found : 

  • Below the "Reveals" category we see headings like "cover reveals" and " new releases" and when clicked on them , you will visit a Tag Link for that category will then see posts from that category only Like shown in IMAGE 2. 

  • URLs of Category posts are like - https://abstractbooks.wixsite.com/website/blog/categories/cover-reveal (we can see that the ending of the URL contains the name of the category the link takes us to) 

    • A Category Link Page LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE HOMEPAGE as it has all the other elements on it but the place that has changed is the Blog Posts Box on the homepage. The box that previously contained all the posts will now have posts only of the selected category and that too in a different format all together Like shown in IMAGE 2 and IMAGE 1 , which will help you recognise it. I have tried to explain this better with screenshots below. Still if there is any doubt then don't forget to contact me

How to find and access category/tagged posts?

I have sorted all my posts on the basis of TAGS. When you click on a tag link then you are taken to a page that looks similar to my homepage but the only difference is that in place of the regular posts , the filtered or posts of a particular tag will show. 

Remember - Both pages look very similar to my Homepage so it is easy for someone to be mislead that they have been redirected to the same page again. That is however NOT TRUE. I have attached screenshots below for you all to understand it better. 

Blog Posts for abstract books

When you visit the homepage

All the blog posts are shown like this on the homepage. My website basically has this particular section for showing the blog posts only and the "category" filtered posts are also shown at the EXACT SAME PLACE . Now the part where the confusion arrises is that ALL THE OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE PAGE ARE SAME AND JUST THE BLOG POSTS BOX GETS CHANGED. Remember , you just need to scroll to see the new filtered posts. The IMAGE 1 shows how posts appear on the homepage.

IMAGE 1. - Shows how Posts appear on the Homepage

When you visit POSTS OF A PARTICULAR CATEGORY

Posts of a particular category are shown same as that of the "homepage blog posts" and only the format is different. Like in the blog posts box you will see then in rectangles with their tiles and descriptions as well but in a category feed posts , you will only see them with covers as shown in the image on the side. Now the best way to recognise that you are at a Category Post page is to see the URL , or simply scroll down and see the posts layout has changed to the one in the image shown.

SO THE KEY POINT OF THIS DISCUSSION IS THAT WHEN YOU CLICK ON THE TAG LINK OR A CATEGORY LINK OR JUST A SIMPLE LINK AND THINK THAT YOU HAVE BEEN REDIRECTED TO THE SAME HOMEPAGE AGAIN AND AGAIN , NO YOU HAVE BEEN NOT!! Just Scroll down to the "BLOG POSTS" section or box and you will see that the posts being displayed has changed and now the posts of the desired category are being shown there instead of them all together! Hope this helps :)

Now blog consists a lot of bookish stuff so I am going to break it all down into categories. The Post-Categories on my Blog are as follows : 

1. Reviews

I Review a lot of ARCs (Advance Review Copies) and sometimes also independent reads by me. There are times when I won't post some review on my blog because I don't want to crowd it here , so I suggest that if you are not able to search for a book here then it surely be on my GoodReads Read Shelf . Use the search bar there to find it. 

That being said , MAJORITY of my reviews are here only. There are different cases for which a user might be searching for my reviews. I have explained them below. 

  • Searching for some specific title? - Use the search bar on my website. I have noticed that it shows result previews when you type the book name partially and those results are the most accurate. Otherwise , the results that are shown on the search page are not very accurate as they consist of all the results (pages having one word of the book name , all books of that author , pages with the same tag etc. ) Basically its a mess so use the preview option I just told you about. Rest if you are not able to find any reviews , then CONTACT ME

  • Searching for Reviews on the Basis of Genres? There might be cases when you might not remember the name of a book or you are simply here to view my reviews on some books of the specific genre , then I suggest that you use this page here - REVIEWS BY GENRES . There are various genre symbols and just click on the genre for whom you want to see my reviews filtered. 

  • Searching for Reviews on the Basis of Tropes they have? There might be cases when you might not remember the name of a book or you are simply here to view my reviews on some books of the specific trope , then I suggest that you use this page here - REVIEWS BY TROPES. There are various trope symbols and just click on the trope for whom you want to see my reviews filtered. 

  • Searching for Reviews on the basis of some character type in that book? There might be cases when you might not remember the name of a book or you are simply here to view my reviews on some books of a special type of character , then I suggest that you use this page here - REVIEWS BY CHARACTERS. There are various Characteristic symbols and just click on the characteristic type for whom you want to see my reviews filtered. 

  • Searching for Books on the Basis of Rating I have given to them? I have sorted my reviews on the basis of the ratings for that book as well. The page you will need to visit to see those sorted reviews is - REVIEWS BY RATINGS .

  • Search Reviews on the Basis of the Series type of that book? Do you only want to read reviews for Standalone books , or maybe duets? This page is for that. I have sorted my reviews on the basis of series type for that book. To visit this page , click on the link - REVIEWS BY SERIES TYPE.

2. This & That

 

" This & That " posts are a special type of posts where I basically tell you about a pair of books with the condition , "if you like this , then you'll love this" .
