How to add categories and tags

Today we will add tags and categories to our blog.

Let’s imagine we are blogging about the television program, 13 Reasons Why.

Categories are used to sort and group content into different sections

We’ll pretend our 13 Reasons Why blog has different sections including: Episode Reviews, Character Profiles and Fan Theories.

We can create a category for each of these.

Tags are a little bit different. While a category may cover a broad range of topics, tags are smaller in scope and focused to specific topics. Think of them as keywords used for topics discussed in a particular post.

So a post reviewing an episode of the series would fall into the “Episode Review” category. We might then give it the following tags:

#13reasonswhy

#tape2sideA (the name of the episode)

#AlexStandall (the name of the character the episode focuses on)

#review (obviously)

#HannahBaker (the name of the protagonist)

#netflix (the distributor)

#ClayJensen (the name of the secondary protagonist)

Good luck! Noni says, “You can do it!”
