27 New Subcategory Additions

Bringing our grand total up to 631 Niches!

Common sense would tell you that eventually EzineArticles should reach a point where we’ve created the minimum number of subcategories (niches) necessary to encompass every possible article topic and there’s no need to add more. If that’s true, however, we haven’t reached that point yet!

As EzineArticles continues to grow, and the world continues to change, we continue to receive articles that don’t really fit into any of our existing subcategories. When that happens, we note the potential new category and watch for more article submissions that match that topic. When there’s enough activity to warrant the addition of a new subcategory, one is created.

Below are the 27 newest categories. Expect 2 more groups of about this same size in the near future.

What about Back pain and Ergonomics?
You need ergonomic positioning for overcoming back pain.

I’d like to suggest a subcategory for “overactive bladder” or “urinary incontinence” under “health and fitness.” I’m having a hard time finding the right place for my articles. Thanks!

Penny & Marc,

I would appreciate a downloadable list that we could print off listing all the different categories & niches please to make submitting much easier. The current list simply doesn’t show enough information to make the best choice.

Kind Regards
Jan

As we grow up in our experience in writing, it is essential for us to stretch our span of knowledge – in this regards the addition in subcategories will be a boon for mus the writers

I do a LOT of blog posts and articles at my main website about the history of the American West.

I would absolutely love a “History” subcategory somewhere. Right now the closest subcategory I can find is “Humanities” under “Arts & Entertainment.” Not really very targeted a choice for articles about the Old West.

Thanks for your consideration.

Good move. I doubt you can ever have all the possible subcategories necessary, such is progress.

I am totally committed to doing some more studying and research so I can produce at least one additional article in all of these categories in the month of June and July 2010. In many cases when doing that level of study, I end up writing article sets, so I might be able to produce several more in some of these categories. Keep up the great work.

I have had a hard time finding a suitable category for video camcorders. Articles about camcorders seem to be listed under 5 different categories, none of which seems ideal.

Thanks for adding acupuncture. Makes sense now that many health benefit providers will cover some acupuncture treatment. It is a eastern practice that western medicine is finally embracing.

A good subcategory for Health and Fitness would be Vegetarian and Vegan (Lifestyles)

Also, New Age is a good one with subcategories of New Age Spirituality, Meditation, Enlightenment, Deeksha, Oneness Movement, etc.

Vegetarian lifestyle might be good if the individual knows what they are doing, protein is important of course, so it matters what you eat. But judging by human teeth, stomach, and system, it seems to be set up fine for meat, and there is the whole Akin’s theory on dieting.

I do believe that a vegetarian category makes sense, as there is information which is very important for those who choose to limit or completely take meat out of their diets.

I think its good that you added acupuncture. I think its becoming more relevant as more medical insurance companies are allowing it to be used within their policies
