QUICK NOTE ON WRITING A POST:
If you have written your POST content in a text editor such as Word or Works, copying and pasting into BLOGGER'S posting space will make it appear to have brought your formatting and text in, but it will actually make a supreme mess of the post. Outside programs like Microsoft Word bring in a lot of unseen and undesirable coding which adds a ton of extra spacing, wingdings, errors etc. into your posting space. To avoid this, you should either write the content directly into Blogger to begin with, or copy from your text editing program (not Word) and paste into a quick gadget like Notes or Sticky Notes. Then re-copy and paste into Blogger from there. It's crazy, but it works!


A NOTE ABOUT EMAIL SAFETY:
Linking directly to an email address will NOT protect it from spambots. To protect your email address from spambots, you'll need to avoid using the at and period signs (@ .) when sharing your email address anywhere on your blog. That's why you'll sometimes see people write their email addresses out like this: BLOGGUIDEBOOK {AT} gmail  {DOT}com. Please be aware that many spammers are using real people to spam you...just because you use Blogger's word verification does not mean you will not receive email/comment spam. Just delete it and forget it.

  17. I love the information on tips that help protect my blog because I was hacked into my accounts through wifi service that didn't have the sercuirty to protect it and it's been over a yr to fix it but even the new equipment isn't working probably so my email address is randomly working on some accounts to login and others not valid. This has opened my eyes to protect sites as well as read the policies that informs you of things people don't realize what some sites share or not protecting your account. I'm going to share my tips on my blog so subscribe to it if you would like to know all the information I've researched to show proof that it's not working because they won't listen as I went through I discovered many other things that are very important to know.

Comments are how we stay connected as bloggers. Let us know how you feel and we'll return the favor...stay calm and blog on!!! And guess what? You'll never find Word Verification on our blog...it gets kind of annoying when you can't read what WV wants you to verify right?
