Create widget areas and add widgets
Our goal here is to achieve this look of the sidebar, with Blog Categories and Recent Posts widgets in it:
Go to Dashboard menu->Appearance->Widgets.
Here you need to have two custom created widget areas. One called Blog Categories and other one called Recent Posts.
To add new widget area, simply use the form shown in the screenshot. Type in the widget area name and click a create button.
In Blog Categories, drag&drop Categories widget.
In Recent Posts, drag&drop Recent Posts widget.
Optionally, you can add widgets names and change the settings.
