Adding Spaces Between Paragraphs

Sometimes Blogspot won't do exactly what you want it to, so you need to have a few tricks up your sleeve to get it to do your bidding.

If you think you've added spaces between your paragraphs, but when you publish your post, your paragraphs are all right on top of each other, here's what you do:
  1. In Edit Posts mode, move your cursor to the beginning of the paragraph you'd like spaced down a line.
  2. Hold down the Shift key and press Enter until your paragraph is spaced the way you like it.
  3. Publish Post.
  4. View Blog, and make sure the space is there. If not, repeat this process, and it should look just the way you want it.

I bypass all of that by working in "edit html" mode instead of "compose" mode. You can also flip back and forth as needed. Very handy.

Hope that helps :)

You are indeed a brave soul. I never thought of that. Keep an eye out for my future post on "How to Fix Your Blog After You've Destroyed it by Trying to be all Techie and Use Edit HTML Mode."

Seriously, though, I hadn't thought of that - that might also help me with the terrible glitches I suffer through when trying to upload multiple photos into one post?

Hi there!
Thanks for this VERY helpful info - the paragraph spacing (I couldn't get any) had been driving me mad - your tip worked. Thank you :)

Lucy - glad it helped! I create these tech tip posts so I can remember how I did something the next time I need to do it again. I can't tell you how many times one of these posts has helped me remember how to do something.
