Creating Categories

You can create categories in two ways

1.  While writing a post or page, look over to the right of the editor and you will see the Tags and Categories sections.  You can create and select categories there.

2. Go to Dashboard –> then to Post –> Categories   A new window will open you can create your categories there as well.

3.  If you want to change your default Category, go to Settings (down the left side) –> Writing  and you will find a drop down menu where you can choose which category will be your default (especially good if you forget to select one).

Some blogging experts, Denise Wakeman for example, say that if you are using more than 6 or 7 categories, you are watering down your content.  This really does make sense.  Your business site should be laser focussed on your services or products.  Therefore, all of your content should be specifically about those products and services.

If you find that you need a lot more categories to list your content under, you may want to consider building another site.  (It’s easy too if you are being hosted by someone like Bluehost who allows you to have 5 complete websites hosted under your annual fee. )
