Think of a restaurant they don’t have random menu changes all time. They may offer some type of specials depending on the month, but the best restaurants stick with a standard menu. This works with blogging is well, you must give your readers that same menu that works the best for your readers. I would suggest to have no more than 8 categories within your site.

By getting into that mind you will be able to build a strong community that reaches, serves, and helps this audience. Until you have this specific target audience your just shooting in the dark.
