How do I express tag?

The Directions: In the editor you've been provided with a Tag type. Create a struct named Post with three stored properties: title of type String author of type String tag of type Tag

Create an instance of Post and assign it to a constant named firstPost.

How do I create an instance of Post with Tag? Thx

structs.swift
struct Tag {
    let name: String
}

struct Post{
let title: String
let author: String
let tag: Tag
}

let firstPost = Post(title: "Hi", author: "Lana", tag: Tag)

Hi Lana,

You need to have an instance of 'Tag' as well. I just created it inline with the rest, this seems to pass the first challenge:

struct Tag {
    let name: String
}
struct Post{
  let title: String
  let author: String
  let tag: Tag
}

let firstPost = Post(title: "Hi", author: "Lana", tag: Tag(name: "Pickup"))
struct Tag {
  let name: String
}
struct Post {
  let title: String
  let author: String
  let tag: Tag
  }
  let firstPost = Post(title: "Hi", author: "Ernest Hemingway", tag: Tag(name: "Dewey Decimal"))
