4.  You want to add one for Working Group (these tags can be helpful for you and readers in searching your archives as they grow; for these purposes it is going to be referenced by an algorithm to help us aggregate like-minded writings).  Click the Add New Category button, fill in the blank with Working Group, and hit the create button.

5.  When you have the Working Group option, click the box to put a checkmark next to Working Group.  Then, go up to the top of the page and create a test blog.  Publish it by pressing the blue button on the right.

6.  Once you have published, view the blog.  You will see a button on the page that says something along the lines of “in Working Group.”  Click that button.

7.  Go to the top of your page where the URL bar is and copy the URL.  This is how we are going to be able to aggregate your blogs into the WordPress BlogRoll.

9.  Under the Blogroll forum, respond to the prompt and paste your URL into the response.  We will take it from there!

10.  Soon after you complete this, the blogs you write on your site that you tag Working Group will show up on the WordPress Working Group blogroll!
