What are Categories and Tags?

The concept of a “category” and the concept of a “tag” are used in a very specific way on this website. One way to visualize the concept of a “category” (for this website) is that is specifies the “table of contents” of this website. Different categories correspond to different topics which will be considered and the topic structure is hierarchical in nature. On the other hand, a “tag” (for this website) is analogous to the “index” in a book. Categories tend to be more author-oriented while tags tend to be more reader-oriented.  You can search for blogs on related topics using a category search or a tag search!
