Will I ever learn to post blogs...

I posted my last 2 blog posts backwards. Will I ever learn? I am thinking
NOT :(


Sew Many Ways... said...

I feel for you. I went through the same frustrations last year when I started blogging. Here's what I do (may not be great, but it works for me):
Before you do anything, determine the order of all your pictures in order on scrap paper (I use the numbers that go with the pictures that are in "My Pictures" on my computer.)
*Bring up the new post page and put your title in.
*You will now enter "all" your pictures before you even write anything.
*click on the add photo button, but when you pick the picture, you have to add the LAST picture that you want on your blog FIRST.
*here's where that list comes in. Start from the buttom of the list and go up.
*I always pick the "CENTER" option for my pictures. When you pick left or right it always messes up your words.
*once you have all your pictures loaded, I put the cursor near the top picture or the last one I loaded. I push enter a couple of times to move the picture down and then I scroll back up.
*This gives me my space to start typing.
*now you can write all you want and in between pictures.
*one trick that I use is...I noticed that Blogger doesn't put spaces in where I want them, so I actually type in the word "SPACE" and then change the font color to white so you can see it. Some people put hearts or doodles.
* There will be alot of space between pictures and especially at the end of the post. Not sure where they come from, but just push the delete button until the picture comes up to where you want it. BE CAREFUL though, if you delete too fast it eats your picture!!!
*at the end of you post when you are finished, there might be more space. Put the cursor on the line under your last sentence and delete until the space is gone.
I know this is alot of info to consume, but feel free to email me at any time.
Good luck,
