The first and easiest way to create categories section in Blogger is to rename the section of labels widget as categories. Of-course this is not the appropriate solution for a blog in which there are huge number of labels. An easy way round this problem is create a separate categories section.

·         Adding categories section to a Blogger blog involves following steps :
1. First of all you have to decide how you want to group your articles, according to the labels applied, and what group heading you wants to give to each grouping of articles.

2. Navigate individual page of the label for first category
 which you want to use by clicking on the label in side bar. Copy your Blog address URL of this page. For example the URL address of the label of Blogger Widget on my site is:

http://vishwao9infotech.blogspot.in/search/label/Blogger%20Widget

3. Now go to Dashboard > Layout > Add a Gadget > Link List
add-Link-list
Link List
5. Enter "Categories" as the title
6. In the Configure Link List dialog box, paste the link of the label you've copied from the address bar to  Site URL
 
Configure-link-list
Configure Category 
7. Enter the name of your Category

7. Click on Add Link to add the link to your new categories list.
8. For every label you wish to put into the Categories Section copy the link and add it to the Configure Links List. By the end you will end up with two or more categories in your list

9. Use the arrow keys to each link to move them according to your choice where you want to place them.

·         Limit the number of posts :
You can also Limit the Number of Posts Displayed in the Categories Section. For this you will need to adjust the URL's of each label as follows :

From :
http://vishwao9infotech.blogspot.in/search/label/CategoryName

To :
http://vishwao9infotech.blogspot.in/search/label/CategoryName?max-results=max number of posts to display

Change the value of max results to number of posts you want to display, for example: max-results=5
