Creating a workflow email pulling blog posts by tag

Hello! I'm at my wits end trying to create an email for a workflow pulling the newest blog posts with a specific tag. I can pull recent posts, but whenever I re-code it to pull by tag, it breaks all the formatting.

 

Can't do an RSS email for the RSS feed because it can't be saved for automation and used in workflows.

 

Here's my code. The tag is "technical resources". Any help/guidance is MUCH appreciated!

{% set rec_posts = blog_recent_posts('4580349396', 2, tags="technical resources") %}
{% for rec_post in rec_posts %}
<div class="post-box">
<img style="width:100% !important; max-width:100% !important; height:auto !important " src="{{ rec_post.featured_image }}" alt="post-image">
<br>
<br>
<div class="post-content" style="padding-top:15px !important; padding-bottom:25px !important; padding:15px 20px 25px !important; font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
<h2 style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important; width:100% !important; font-weight:700 !important; color:#555555 !important; line-height:24px !important; font-size:22px !important; margin:0 !important; padding:5px 0 15px !important;" class="post-title">{{ rec_post.name }}</h2>
<div class="post-cbyline" style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color:#555555 !important">
by <a class="author-link" style="text-decoration:none; color:#555555;" href="{{ group.absolute_url }}/author/{{ rec_post.blog_post_author.slug }}">{{ rec_post.blog_post_author.display_name }}</a>, {{ rec_post.publish_date|datetimeformat('%m/%e/%Y') }}
</div>
<p> {{ rec_post.post_list_content }} </p>
<div class="post-link" style="text-align:center">
<a class="more-link" style=" font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif !important; background:#0066ff !important; min-width:148px !important; height:40px !important; border-radius:5px !important; line-height:40px !important; text-align:center !important; color:#fff !important; text-transform:uppercase !important; font-weight:700 !important; margin-top:20px !important; display:inline-block !important; text-decoration:none !important; float:none !important; margin-bottom:0 !important; " href="{{rec_post.absolute_url }}"><span style="color:#fff !important;" >Read More</span></a>
</div>

</div>
</div>
{% endfor %}

 

Thank you!
