I can't create an instance of Post because Tag is saying that the I am assigning it the incorrect type of value.

Thank you in advanced for any help!

structs.swift
struct Tag {
    let name: String
}


struct Post {
    var title: String
    var author: String
    var tag: Tag

    }

let firstPost = Post(title: "Things", author: "Things", tag: "Things" )

struct Tag {
    let name: String
}

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

    func description() -> String {
        return "\(title) by \(author). Filed under \(tag.name)"
    }
}

let firstPost = Post(title: "iOS Development", author: "Apple", tag: Tag(name: "swift"))
let postDescription = firstPost.description()

Hey Cindy, I'm a little confused as to why we do not have to initialize the stored properties in the struct with the init and then self.title etc... Thanks in advance!
