    When publishing a new post, there are two different sections on the left which says “Post Tags” and “Categories” which made me confused…
    What is the difference between a Category and a Tag?
    Why they both exist together?
    What is their purpose? What are they used for? What can they do?

    Please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    And please paste the exact URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We usually need that to give a relevant answer.

    We certainly do for this question, as the answer really does depend on the blog.

    Tags: Black, Eyed, Peas, END, Fergie, Will.I.Am, BEP, Taboo, Apl

    (@rain: Note that if you see me ask for a blog link while also answering the actual question, it means I’ve tried the username as blog name and found a wp.com blog; if I find no blog that way, I ask for a link without answering.)
