Having a category field on the blog post itself is a fine way to do this.

Eg:

{
"title":"Blah",
"author":"Chris",
"category":"music",
"date": ...
}

Writing a view that sorts posts by category and date would be simple
with this sort of data structure. Of course if you wanted to rename a
category later you'd need to touch all the documents that listed it,
so this solution is more like tagging than categories, but should
fulfill the need.
