Bloggers Category
This for their bio and share links only! DO NOT categorize them in a post they are the author of. This will put those articles into the Blogger home page. Use the Author field about half way down. You can also but the author’s name in a tag along the right hand side near the bottom.

DO NOT USE THE BLOGGER (INDIE, IDOL, SCENE, ETC.) CATEGORY ON NEWS, REVIEWS, PICS, VIDEO, LISTS AND RANT POSTS!

Blogger Pages
Each blogger has their own page. These are correlated to Posts that are categorized as their Name. This allows us to sort them on the blogger home page, and on their individual pages. Keeping all of their social media links and information in one place.

At the bottom of their individual pages will be any post they made. This comes from the author field inside of each post.

Albums Sidebar
Each album is a post that is in the Album category. The album category is not sorted in the main home page list, nor in search results. Make sure to keep the image square like a CD cover. There may be undesirable formatting issues. Also make sure Show sharing buttons and Show likes are turned off.
