Let Me Just Say It One More Time..... So Far

I really really resent that I have to resort to making my blogs look bad in order to make the paragraphs separate. Sometimes I can not get the separation between paragraphs to stick no matter what I do. Unless of course I insert a period on the line in between.

Why do I need the paragraphs to be separate. Because some blog guru said so when I first started this blog thing, that has consumed me (not really). And I admit I like the look of the paragraphs being separate.

I used to claim that I hated reading off of the computer screen and printed copious amounts of reading material off of the computer. But this blog reading (had forty-seven to read this afternoon) that I have been doing has really changed that. I read a lot off of the computer screen, I don't even think about printing off what I want to read any more.

There are those sites that I find I choose not to read, rather subconsciously I just go right on by. And it is all in presentation. Just like food. Presentation is ninty percent of the meal, food or written sustenence. And just like food, what appeals to one may not appeal to another, that's why one restaurant does not suffice for everyone. Or one table setting. Or one paragraph format.

I just wish that when I see my paragraphs on my "create" page just like I like them, the pictures too, that everything would stay put when it gets published. Arrghghgh.

But in the grand scheme of things, dear reader, it really isn't that big of a deal. I just knew that you would understand, the cat doesn't, and I sorta felt a little complainy tonight.

Dear reader, I hope that your first week of Advent is starting off well, just like you like it or need it to.

I like to cook and write as well so when you taled about presentation - I knew exactly what you meant. I also completely agreed.

i like breaks in the copy. it just breaks it down into easier pieces to chew.

I don't think it matters what anyone else thinks. It is your blog and you should present it however you want!

yeah, why do you suppose that is???

smiles, bee

I don't understand why the breaks don't occur where I put them sometimes either, Lanny. It drives me nuts though, so I can sympathize with you even if the cat doesn't care. ;)

Yea... blogger burps from time to time - but for the most part my stuff goes where I want it. What I really wish is that they would just make our PAGE the same size as the page we create on -- or vice verse! Then it wouldn't even be an issue! They'd both look the same...
