Ugly blogging

Why do my posts look so freaky when I compose them in Microsoft Word and then paste them into the WordPress box?  It is obnoxious.  I appoligize for the small font size in the last post, but I’m not computer literate enough to know how to fix it easily.

    Because you need to change the formatting. It’s easy to do.

    1. Look at your tool bar in the composer/editor — You’ll notice all the way to the right a little box that has a bunch of little colors on it. Click that box. (Or if you want to do it even easier, just click Alt + V)

    2. Once you click that another section of the tool bar will drop down. Now you’ll see a little eraser next to a little clipboard with the MS Word logo on it. Click that eraser.

    It’s that simple. Your formatting will be reset and your posts will look like they would have if you just composed them in WordPress.

    Another easy way to strip formatting is to cut and paste the text into a notepad (windows) or textedit (mac) window and then cut and paste from there into the form your submitting (for wordpress, an email, etc.).

    ‘Cause WordPress sucks and is overrated!

    Just like Internet Explorer, Notorious Big, and Trinitarian Theology.
    Oh Snap!
