Finding Content on Musings of a Muse

My “new” template is actually getting older now but I thought I’d share some tips and tricks on how to find content on Musings of a Muse today so you can have the best user experience possible on my site.

There are SO many ways to search through the archives and older posts and you might not be utilizing them.

So this is a little discussion of how you can find your fav brands, search for reviews, etc….

Clickable Categories and Tags

Search by Tag

One of the best features of my site in my opinion are the category tags. Every single post features clickable tags below the post title. See the photo above for an example as it contains tags for Asian Brands, Beauty Abroad, Blush, Japanese Brands, Majolica Majorca, Make-up Reviews, Muse Approved, Swatches…you can click any of these tags and similiar posts will be available for you to browse through!

Nifty right?

Search by Brand

Search by Brand
If you look towards the right hand side of the site you’ll see some pull down menus that allow you to search by brand. I’ve categorized these into four sections which include:

  • Drugstore Brands (Almay, Covergirl, Revlon, L’Oreal, etc….etc…etc….can all be found here)
  • Mid-Range Brands (Urban Decay, Lorac, Bare Minerals, etc….etc….can all be located here)
  • High-End Brands (Givenchy, Dior, Guerlain, etc….are all here)
  • Seasonal Collections (Spring 2007? Summer 2008? All seasonal collections are located here)

Simply drop down the menu, click the brand you want, and EVERY single post I ever did for that brand will appear in your browser.

Muse Approved, Beauty on a Budget, and a Daily Dose of Beauty

Muse Approved
Want to know some of the products that are really doing it for me? Click on the Muse Approved icon located on the right hand side of the blog and you’ll be magically whisked away to things I love. While you’re hanging out over there do check on the Beauty on a Budget and Daily Dose of Beauty tags too!

These are just some of the cool ways to search through the site!

I’ll cover more in another post soon!

Have fun storming the castle!
