Writing your first WordPress Blog Post
Once logged into your WordPress dashboard, you can create your very first blog post. A post is a message that you are displaying in the body of your website. Blog posts are displayed in chronilogical order with the most recent post at the top. As you begin to post more often, older posts will be moved down the page. To get started, click "Posts on the left side menu bar:
Once clicked, this will display a list of posts that are currently published on your website. You will see there is already one post on your website titled, "Hello World!". Under posts, click "Add New" to add your own post and start blogging:
This will load the Editor, which is where you can create your own post. The editor functions very closely llike a word processor. You can add formatting to your posts by using the buttons above. The editor allows you to bold, underline, highlight, and much more. Once you are done writing your first post, click "Publish"
Congratulations! You have published your first post and is now live on your website for the world to view!

Posts include the ability to be segregated into categories and use tags for identification. Why is that not covered? Where its it covered?

Thank you for your WordPress question. The official WorPdress page on Categories explains "Depending on the theme and widgets you have activated, categories can be displayed at the top or bottom of posts, on the individual post view, on your menu, and/or in the sidebar. "
That page also includes a link to the page on Tags.
Also the Wordpress Codex is the manual for WordPress.
