Blog categories

I’ve been trying to figure out how to arrange my blog posts so that I can group specific entries into categories such as “Books,” “Friends and Family,” “Life in Ottawa,” “Travel,” etc. (see lower right hand corner of the screen to see what I mean).

When I asked around for tips, I was pointed to some advice on Taher Baderkhan’s blog: Blogger Categories in 5 minutes (thanks, Dave!).

The steps Baderkhan outlines are easy to follow, but for some reason my latest posts haven’t been indexed (the categories will only work once the Blogger index is searching this content). Hopefully everything will be up and running soon and I can see whether I like this set up. For now, this is just an explanation for why the links in the bottom corner aren’t working yet…
