    Organising a "random" website?

    Mostly just shooting in the dark here....

    How would you go about organising a site (just starting) about random topics that will be built over time?

    Lets say today I will write about some element of "cooking" and tomorrow I might write about "programming in c++" say.

    So at the end of today, the above 2 topics would be all I have on the site.

    Then say tomorrow I would have a topic on "modding your xbox" or "my adventure in africa"

    How would you organise this site so that it is easily navigable and easy for users to find what they are looking for? (I do intend to put a sitesearch box on it.)

    Thanks!

    I wrote my own blogging system, but you can find many blog systems that allow you to set entries into categories

    and to follow on from jrmillion: start with a few categories, and then every time you post a new entry try to fit it into one of them; if there isn't a clear fit, create a new category (but try to keep the categories fairly general, otherwise you can end up with a list of categories that's as long as the actual number of posts )
