In this tutorial i will show you how to manually create categories in
Blogger blog. Category is a very important section of any blog or website,
because with the help of categories people can easily find what they are

labels, this tutorial is aimed at beginner bloggers, Let me explain
how to add category section in blogger blog.
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

separate 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:
3. Now go to Dashboard > Layout > Add a Gadget > 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
|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.
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 :
Change the value of max results to number of
posts you want to display, for example: max-results=5

categories using the Link List widget into blogger blog would of great
