Category and blocks


I am creating blocks programmatically. But block contents getting created without category. How to set category to a block by code ? 

Below is how my code look like

var sharedBlock = contentrepository.GetDefault(new ContentReference(FolderId));
sharedBlock.Name ="Name";
sharedBlock.Title ="Title";

var contentCat = sharedBlock as ICategorizable;
contentCat.Category = new CategoryList(categoryIds.AsEnumerable());

//Since this is a shared block instance I can cast it to IContent
var content = contentCat as IContent;
content.Name ="BlockName";

var savedReference = contentrepository.Save(content, EPiServer.DataAccess.SaveAction.Publish);

Intead of asigning Category property -> contentCat.Category = new CategoryList(categoryIds.AsEnumerable());

try to use Add method to add categories:

var contentCat = sharedBlock as ICategorizable;

// remove this line:
// contentCat.Category = new CategoryList(categoryIds.AsEnumerable());

foreach(var id in categoryIds)
