list items from blog and filter by category name

this is a bit raw, but shows the $args = array('category_name' => 'Categy Name 1','Categy Name 2','Categy Name 3' => 8, 'paged' => $paged ); for querying the category_name

to do multiple properly, you need to do this:

'category_name' => 'Categy Name 1,Categy Name 2' 

rather than this, which will just show the one category.

'category_name' => 'Categy Name 1','Categy Name 2','Categy Name 3' => 8


<ul class='myList'>
  <!-- WP Query Parameters -->
  <?php $paged = ( get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ? get_query_var( 'paged' ) : 1;?>
  <?php //$the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'category_name' => 'latest-news', 'posts_per_page' => 8, 'paged' => $paged ) ); ?>

  <!-- Start WP Query -->
  <?php //while ($the_query -> have_posts()) : $the_query -> the_post();
  $args = array('category_name' => 'Categy Name 1','Categy Name 2','Categy Name 3' => 8, 'paged' => $paged );

There is a qualitative and quantitative difference between a day that begins with a little exercise, a book, meditation, a good meal, a thoughtful walk, and the start of a day that begins with a smartphone in bed.
