Not seeing custom Items in Dashboard "Content" section

I created a custom part and type via code with just a bunch of string fields. In the Dashboard i click Content -> Create new Content -> (my content type). I see the output of my editortemplate, fill in some data and save. I see the data in the db, and if I go to , it loads my content item back up for editing, so I know creating and saving my type works fine. But the problem is I don't see it when I do Dashboard -> Content , or when I do Dashboard -> Content Types -> (my content type) -> List Items. 

What step did I miss?

Possibly you missed the Stereotype setting?

I'm not sure what stereotype is, but this actually starts working once I add the "Common" part to my type, and then create a  new instance of my type. Once I do both of those things my type instances start showing up in the "Content" section.
