Twcategories and links
No more than two categories seem to display in my theme Twenty eleven? Am I using categories and links correctly?
The blog I need help with is hurleystudioartsmedia.wordpress.com.
Until you publish a post in any category there is nothing that the software can display.

are NOT categories. They are static pages.
Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand is (1) there is only one page we can post to one any blog and (2) the static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ they create do not automatically update. Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with posts.
By default the front page of the blog is the post that displays all posts in your blog. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.
We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages into the custom menu.

There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here. > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
Thanks time thief…I understand re the pages vs post…but had made a post private and couldnt understand why the category I put it into didnt appear at all. Your reply explains it all…once I had publicised my post, the category appeared in the drop down menu.
