So in writing and formatting the last post (Community, identity and representation) I found the formatting of the text was different to previous posts and so explored a little. This ended up with me looking in the text editor and seeing its formatting in HTML code for the first time.
I then read about formatting in Word and posting via the special post button. So my current thinking is to write posts and pages in a simple paragraph style in MS Word prior to posting and then just used bold for simple headings. What do those of you more experienced bloggers do?
