This video will be helpful to anyone who is new to blogging, or who is used to editing documents in programs like Microsoft Word. Writing for the web is different from print, but there are a lot of great things to learn from print formatting.

Things to avoid when styling your posts like a problogger
A problem can arise if you hard code the formatting into your blog posts. Say you were writing a post and wanted to highlight certain text in pink colors, because your blog design was pink and white. What if you decided to change your blog’s theme or color scheme down the line… would you want to go back to each blog post to change the colors you used? Of course not.
So that’s why I’m going to show you how to make changes that work with your blog’s theme, and if you want to make changes to the theme itself… that’s totally doable. If you’re interested in learning that, let me know in the comments and it might turn into a future video!
