My posts are turning into one big paragraph. My line spacing is gone!

My method of posting is to write using Word, then copy and paste into blogger. It copies in correctly, but at some point it turns into one paragraph.

Can any of you tell me what's going on? Thank you.

I'm back. Interesting...it didn't happen this time. Is it because I typed everything directly into blogger?

I'm no expert but you can try this...

Paste your text into blogger, then click the tab at the top of the post box that says HTML. Once you are in the screen, you can make sure that everything is formatted correctly. You don't need to know HTML, you can just put in "carriage returns" (archaic term from the 20th century) when you want a line break. This has worked for me.

Thank you Tracey.

I gave up and typed the whole post directly in, and now I have extra spacing. "sigh*

I'm afraid to touch it again.

I'll try your suggestion if it happens again. My next post will be a couple weeks from now (at least) because spring break is coming!

I've never had this problem. I wish I knew if it's something I've done or if it is in the software.

Glad the fix has worked for you!

Hello Anita
I've had this happen before and from someone scared stiff of HTML I'd suggest just go through the pasted text manually spacing the sentence beginnings and paragraphs the way you want them.
Take care

Nice to hear from you Cathy!
Thanks for your solution, too.

By the way, my latest post has too many spaces between lines. Too scared to try to fix it...that it may go back to the one paragraph. :)

ohh le sigh...my favorite blog slang word. I type write into blogger. Word's vast amount of white open space scares me. Hope you fixed everything.

I have no idea, but saying hi!! I write on blogger, I never thought about writing on word and c&p, that would work well, as I find editing on blogger difficult. I do think adding pictures on blogger is a breeze!

I kept hearing about this problem but never encountered it. It does seem that every once in while though Blogger (and other websites) sometime develop weird quirky problems that eventually get worked out. Site maintenance issues perhaps?
