Creating an email to pull tagged blog posts for a workflow

Occasional Contributor | Platinum Partner

Hello! We are creating an email nurture and want to pull in new blog posts with a specific tag for one of these emails. I have a blog email set up, but for the life of me cannot get it to pull posts by tags instead of recency withot losing all formatting.


I can't use an RSS email, as these can't be saved for automation. 


Here's the code I have. The tag is "technical resources", and we only need to pull in this one tag. Can anyone help? Your assistance is MUCH appreciated. 


{% set rec_posts = blog_recent_posts('4580349396', 2) %}
{% 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">
<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">{{ }}</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') }}
<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>
