Don't forget to add helpful blog tags to your blog posts! Blog tags are a useful way to group related posts and quickly tell reader what a post is about. Blog tags are also useful for filtering and searching through your blog. To add a tag to you blog, type in your tag to the “Add Tags” box above the Save and Review button at the bottom of the page.
On Site Builder you can filter blog posts by tags to better direct which blogs show up. To do this select your blog asset and click “Edit Blog”. On the Page Asset Editor page find “Filter Posts By Tag(s)” and add your tags. Be sure to check for spelling errors!

You will now be able to decide which posts to display in your blog feed. Simply go to your blog and edit the blog roll asset. You will see two radio buttons in the "Posts" row: "show all", and "show selected". If you would like to be able to remove a post or posts from your feed, select "show selected" and then "show selected posts".
The "show selected blog posts" popup will appear. Every post that is going to appear in your feed is checked and highlighted. If you would like to remove a post from your feed, simply uncheck it and click "update your feed". If you change your mind, and would like to display the post after all, recheck the checkbox and click "update your feed"...
