why don’t categories/tags sort posts?

    On other blog platforms I use, clicking on a category or tag brings up all the posts within that blog which have that category/tag. In WordPress, apparently, clicking such a link brings up posts from other people’s blogs, instead. Not very useful when I want to direct potential readers to all the posts on a certain topic. Am I not using these correctly?

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

    The links in your posts will always do this. Use the categories and tags widgets in your sidebar to link to those sections of your blog. This is also possible with custom menus if your theme supports it.

    It is also possible to do this on the iNove theme.

    The way those links work is extremely counter-intuitive, but it is responsible for a VERY large part of the search engine-friendliness of our blogs here.

    Thanks, Friends. I didn’t realize that Categories was a widget which I could add to my sidebar. I’ve now done that.
