Need Bloggy Help!

Ok ladies, I need your help. I want to categorize my recipes on my blog so that you see them on the sidebar. How exactly do I do this? I know I have to add the label gadget, but then what? Help! Please??

You have to go back and label each of your recipe posts and then add the label gadget to your sidebar. That's it, time consuming, but simple.

Ok, so I have to edit the title to whatever the recipe is? I'm a bit confuzzled, I'm very much computer illiterate:( LOL

If you use labels, you'll find a "label" box at the bottom of your post. One way to do it is to use ingredients as categories. Another way to do it is type the name of the recipe in the label spot.

If you're looking to do something like I have on my blog, I added a "list" gadget to the sidebar, and added a link to each recipe.

Hope that helps.

I created an index of my recipes using text boxes from the "add a gadget" button. By using the text boxes, I can add subtitles to the each category, if I like. Does that make sense?
It took me a while to do it. I just broke it down into small batches and would set goals for completing a category or two a week. I have had several people comment on appreciating the recipe index. Now after I post a recipe, I immediately go over and add it to the index. Best wishes on getting yours done!
