Blogger Categories: the quick and dirty method

Apologies, but I'm not going to explain this in too much detail. If you know basic html, then this should be enough information.

To relate this to gaming, I'll say that categories are very important! Some people only want read articles about a particular console. Needless to say, I wanted this feature on this blog.

Blogger is popular, but doesn't currently support categories. There are several methods available to do this. I deem them all "more difficult than necessary". Blogger will shape up eventually, but if you can't wait for categories, do this:

Go to your blog's site. Put the terms you want into the blogger search bar and click "search this blog". Copy the resulting link and put it into your sidebar. You can even do this with an advanced search if you want.

For an example, if you wanted a "PS3" category, search for PS3. Copy the resulting link and put it in your sidebar.

Why did people make this so difficult, I wonder?
