First of all, I am by no means a blogger pro.  As a newbie, my journey of blogging has been quite a learning experience.  I started with Blogger (or blogspot.com), a free, blog publishing service by Google.  Creating a decent blog was time consuming, often frustrating, and sometimes fun. It consisted of reading numerous DIY blog posts, watching countless videos, and many, many trial and errors.

I decided to move to WordPress just when I was becoming comfortable with Blogger.  I was somewhat disappointed that all that I have learned will no longer be in use.  This is the reason I decided to share the tips and tricks I  learned about navigating and creating with Blogger.

This post is about How to Add Category Menu On the Header for Blogger or blogspot.com (seen below).

6.) Click on Selected Labels.  You will check the Category that you want to show on your Category Menu.  Try not to choose too much, about 6-8 categories, so that the menu does not go to the next line.

7.)  For sorting, I choose Alphabetically, for display- List.

8.)  I do not check off   “show number of posts per label”

9.) All done!! =)
