How to Add Categories to your Blog

Originally sumbited by: Calynette

Question #1: I noticed you have a category widget on your blog, how can I set one up?

1. Log in to Blogspot
2. Click "Customize"
3. Click "Add a gadget"
4. Click the blue plus sign next to "Labels"
5. You can change the title to "Categories" if you perfer or leave it as "Labels"
6. Choose "Alphabetically", or "By Frequency"
7. Click Save

The labels that appear will be the tags used in your articles. I recommend not using more than 3 labels for each article or it may get confusing for your readers.
