On the right side of the editor, below Post settings, are links for Labels, Schedule, Location and Options.
“Labels” applies a category label for a post, which can be used for indexing and creating a list of topics for users to find. For example, a blog about fruit would use apples, oranges, and pears as labels. A post would be assigned a label, then visitors could search for posts by the label category.
“Schedule” is the option for scheduled when a post will be  published, allowing the blog author to setup posts for publishing in advance.

“Location” will display the location of a post using Google maps, while “Options”  has choices for allowing comments on each post, and some additional HTML options.
