@ssawczyn You don't seem to have gotten a reply to this, so I'll do my best to answer. In short, you don't, strictly speaking, have categories on micro.blog, but you do have tagmoji, which are essentially emojis used as tags which allow you to group posts by subject, as well as show up in the various topic feeds. There's a full list here, and you'll want to look at it on your phone so you can see each emoji, unless your screen reader supports emoji and reading of same. The full list is here: help.micro.blog/2018/tagm...
Hope this is helpful.
@arush Thanks for replying to this ... months ago, I'm just seeing it now. I think I'm going to switch back to WordPress for blogging, still having trouble with the editor here and there's not much support on Android. Also, the emoji tag system is cute, but not practical or flexible for me.
