Categorizing blog posts

Categorizing blog posts can be a good way to structure and organize your posts.  You may want to place your blog posts into categories in order to sort your articles by theme.  You can also use this tool to gear your articles to different audiences i.e. a buyers blog and a sellers blog. 

Creating a new category

The easiest way to add a new blog category is when you are creating a new post, although this can be done with existing posts as well.  First click on the Blog Post option at the top of your back end menu then the + next to Posts to create a new post.

Adding a category to an existing blog post

You can add any preexisting post to any new category you create.    To do this, go to edit any existing post.

Creating a Blog Index for a new category 

Once you have added the respective blogs to the category you have created, you will need to add a new index to showcase the new blog category.  To add a new index , proceed to Pages and click on the + to add a new page.
