    I would like to read blogs about mystery fiction,historical fiction, and historical mystery fiction. How would I find them?

    The blog I need help with is okayread.wordpress.com.

    There is a tag cloud on the Home Page under Topics.

    Than you. I can only see “popular tags” and none of these are included.

    Use the search field at the top right-hand corner. You may get no results however.

    Here’s a link to the global tags support doc. It provides the format you can use for searching.

    WordPress.com search

    It can take a few days before new blogs are included in the search index. Brand new blogs might not have enough posts for us to accurately determine whether or not it’s spam.
    Also, keep in mind that the search engine only indexes the body text of blog posts, pages, and comments. The blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. Read the full entry.

    Google search > (notice there is no space following the colon and that you can replace the keywords with any of your own choice)
    Example search string > historical fiction site:wordpress.com
