Testing updated post editor image upload 2

Testing CSS text align property

Result, text-align:none doesn't work. Now to test text-align:left

Looks like result of using text-align:none is the same as text-align:left which probably is the default.

Will test more later. Meanwhile the code for displaying the image uploaded for the old post editor and the updated post editor is give below:

Code for old post editor:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href=""><img style="cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 61px; height: 18px;" src="" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5435375565695206498" /></a>

Code for the updated post editor:
<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="" /></a></div>

Format for Easy Scanning

Maintain an easy to read format for the visitors to your blog. Using relevant keywords in an already descriptive headline is a good start.

As often as possible incorporate bullet points, numbering and sub headlines into the body of your post. Using a layout like this makes the content easy to scan for useful information or relative points being made. Lastly avoid using large blocks of text but instead keep paragraphs and sentences as short as possible.

A weblog is basically an internet journal wherein you may digitally pen down your thoughts, ideas, opinions and practically everything that you just want citizens to learn. Blogs come in several styles, formats, and settings, based on the preference of the user. Several blogging internet sites, provide built in features just like hyperlink, straight texts, pictures etc. Some blogging web sites, even permit you to placed video and mp3's on your blogs.

Rather then writing texts, some bloggers choose to make their blogs far more audio friendly, by employing spoken word entries. That is called audio blogging.

Essentially a weblog contains these functions:

title- which means that you can label your post
body- that is the content of your post
trackback- other web sites are generally linked back to your blog
permanent link- every single article that you just write has a URL
comments- this allow for readers to post comments on your blog.

7 tips for writing blog articles

1. Write down your topic.

As soon as you think of what you want to write about, jot it down on a piece of paper. The amount of times I had thought of great content but have been in middle of something and then forgotten the topic when it came to sitting at my desk wondering what I could write about! These days I write the topic down as soon as it occurs to me even if I’m in the middle of playtime with my daughter and have to borrow a crayon to save the thought!
