Each of your blog entries will be filed under a particular category. Your blog has two preset categories, 'General' and 'PDP', and you can create as many additional categories as you like. The titles of these categories will be listed in the left hand column of your blog. The category will also appear in the bottom right hand side of the entry.

The category titles act as links, which enable you to view all of the entries in that particular category.

To select a category for your entry:

  1. Click on the drop down category list under 'Category' and the icon that looks like this: Folder icon
