When you select Tags, add new tags by typing the text for your tag, then hitting the back arrow in the top left to return to the previous screen.

If the tag has already been created for a previous post or page, the Tags list will begin to auto-populate with matching tags.

Pro tip – Make sure the total of your tags + categories does not exceed 15. Sometimes having more than 15 categories plus tags combined causes conflict and will prevent a post from showing in the Reader.
