First, go into the Appearance tab and select Widgets from the submen. Add the Links Widget to your Sidebar, ensuring it’s in the location you want it in.

Now, it’s just a matter of adding Links. The process is pretty straight forward. If you create new categories and add your links to them, your links will appear on the sidebar in the category groups.
