Summary of this tutorial:

The plugin we are using in this article is:

Simple Tags

For the first recommended method we are using the default tag cloud widget.

You would go under Appearance, Widgets and add the tag cloud widget in the sidebar that you would like.

For more control over the tags displayed you would want to install and activate the simple tags plugin.

Under Appearance, Widgets you can now add the Tag Cloud (Simple Tags) widget to your preferred sidebar.

It allows you to change the number of tags, font sizes, colors, ect.

The widget can also be ordered for display tags to show the most popular tags
