HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR BOOK TOPIC WORKSHEET
NUMBER OF POSTS BY CATEGORY AND TAG
WordPress users, here’s how you can look to see how many posts you’ve written with each category or tag:
Log in to your Dashboard. Then, under Posts, choose either Categories or Tags, depending on how you prefer to organize your posts.
At the right of the screen, you can see how many posts are in each Category or Tag in the Count column. Easy peasy!
POSTS WITH THE MOST COMMENTS
In WordPress, click on Posts and look at All Posts. Click on the little comment icon to sort your posts by the number of comments. (You’ll see it to the right of “Stats” in my screen shot.) If you click on it twice, the posts with the most comments should be listed at the top.
