John Hardly Tech: html from a word document (43) RE: Tech: html from a word document 12 Mar 09


Maggie, it's blogspot. I'm trying to convert most of my website biz to using a blog (lots of reasons many artists are doing the same thing). For one thing, it's more flexible to use when most of my internet biz is being done on the etsy site.

One of my biggest hurdles in doing so is that anything I've composed in Word and have saved to my computer, I need to re-edit once I've put it into the blogspot post box. In fact, I even have to copy and paste one paragraph at a time, or I have to go back and forth to figure out where they were supposed to be. If I don't, no matter how it's save in Word, it pastes into the blog box in one, uninterrupted block of text.

There've been other vexing problems getting used to blogspot -- paragraph breaks I put into the text magically expand or disappear when I publish the post.

It's not the end of the world. It's just more steps. I won't give up. Yet. But I wish I could figure out what others do. They can't ALL be composing in those post boxes (without good editing capabilities) and then publishing. Can they?

I will say, I'm more inclined to give up the blog for want of interest. I'm not sure what other artists are doing to generate interest in their blogs, but just the linkage I'm using is resulting in virtual nuthin'.
