How To: Pick the Right Category for Your Post

When you are creating a post for the website, it is very important to pick the appropriate category so that it appears in the right place!

Here are some category descriptions to help you choose the best one:

      • Announcements – All Officer Reports will automatically show up under Announcements.  Other than Officer reports, Announcements is for all Baronial related news that is not an SCA event, or a local activity.
      • Events – The Event category is for information about upcoming SCA events, as well as reviews and summaries of events after they occur.
      • Activities – The Activities category is for local activities that go on related to the Barony.  Examples of things commonly included in Activities are announcements about local A&S gatherings, fight practices, socials, and other activities.
      • Officer Reports – The Officer Reports category should be used for every Officer report submitted via the blog.  This way, anyone who is interested in reading all of the Officer Reports can go directly to the Officer Reports category (https://bhakail.eastkingdom.org/wordpress/index.php/category/announcements/business/officer-reports/) on the website and read up on what our Officers are up to.

By following this guide and using your best judgement when selecting the category for your post, you help keep our website easy to read and navigate!

The Barony of Bhakail is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism serving the greater Philadelphia area. In the SCA, we are the southernmost barony in the East Kingdom.

The SCA is an international organization dedicated to research and education about the pre-17th century world. We learn about the Middle Ages by living it — making and wearing medieval clothes, cooking and eating medieval food, learning to fight with swords, shields and armor, and lots more! We encourage you to come find out more about what we do: new friends are always welcome!

If you are new to the SCA or are looking to get involved please visit our Newcomers page for some wonderful information and links. If you are a current member of the SCA and have just moved into the Barony, please visit the About Us page and feel free to send an email to our Chatelaine, the person who helps newcomers find their way in the SCA. Either way, we welcome you to introduce yourself to the Baron of Bhakail – Muin maqq Minain.
