Tags have odd line breaks at end of blog posts

I have tags that appear underneath the blog posts on my site, and for some reason there are weird line breaks appearing in the middle of tags. On the first or seccond one usually. Does anyone know why this might be happening or a way I can fix it?

I have checked to see if it was the way that the tags were added (was return pressed in the middle of entering the tag) but it doesn't seem to be that.

I'm also having this issue where either a word or even a random few letters will break onto the next line with what seems like no consistency. Is there a code to force a max character count before a word break in the tag box at the end of a blog post?

Regarding the tags, I was able to fix this with:

span.blog-item-tag-wrapper {
  white-space: nowrap;
}

Toggling the CSS on and off, did this:

The solution to this problem works fine in the browser preview, but for me when real world testing on my phone the blog tags would then be in a single line and push the view wider if they went over one line - essentially a no-break kind of setup.

I investigated the CSS and went down the stack a level and this worked better, grouping the tag names so they connect and don't break apart in weird places but also not causing another problem on the mobile device itself.

.blog-item-tag {
  white-space: nowrap;
}

This goes down one level and still captures each tag. Thanks for the solution as it helped me solve my issues. I am not sure if the mobile thing is an iPhone Safari issue but that was what I was testing on.
