I have the following categories (for a forum):

  • Entertainment
  • Transportation
  • Business
  • Travel
  • Legal
  • Relationships
  • Technology
  • Politics

I also wanted to add two more categories:

One about living in general (getting a house, getting use to a new country, etc.)

And other about working in general (getting a job, complaints about work, etc.)

Which are the right nouns for them?

(or is it correct to just use 'Living' and 'Working/Employment' as 'Categories')?

I think employment is probably your best choice for working. As for living, personal finance or life style may be your best choice.

Thanks, I will go for employment then. But I'm not sure about 'Personal Finance', I also include posts that are not related to money too (like finding a house, getting use to the culture of another country, etc. –  janoChen Aug 21 '11 at 7:57
    
"Lifestyle" is a possibility then. –  David Schwartz Aug 21 '11 at 8:19
    
I think I want to go for something which is related to everything that happens in getting and living in a house? –  janoChen Aug 21 '11 at 8:37
    
"Household" or "Family", maybe. I think "Lifestyle" is best actually. I can't quite find the absolutely perfect word. –  David Schwartz Aug 21 '11 at 8:39
    
@janoChen Sorry, I changed the meaning of the category. Now it is only referring to getting and maintaining a house, family, transportation, etc. –  janoChen Aug 21 '11 at 8:42
