The Miracle of Blogging

I am amazed at myself for all I have self taught myself on this wonderful programme.

I was always a self taught computer person from the beginning and now I have successfully taught myself loads of stuff about Blogger.
I am sure there are still other little things that I could do to give my blog more pinaze and flare, or some special little button that does some simple wonderful effect, I will find them one day.

In my time I have learnt to log on, create a blog, change the template and even change the colour of the font.
I can make the font small or large, pink or blue.
I can make it bold, make it look pretty in Italics.

I can centre it
I can move it to the right
And even back again to the left.
I have learnt to write a list
  1. eggs
  2. bananas
  3. bread
And even how to add a photo of someone special

A picture that deplicts what I am writing about







Or a special video of something interesting






I have even managed to change the background on my page with the wonderful stuff from over at The Cutest Blog on the Block, which reminds me, I have even managed to create hyperlinks to places!

But in all my blogging time, I have yet to work out how to write some text and place strikethrough on a word???

There is no button for it in the create a post screen and I am at a lose as to how to do it?
Maybe one day Google will create the button for us or some kind person will give me a tutorial on what to do??

Till then, I will do what I have learnt and keep trying new things to find out what they do.
Happy Blogging

to do a strikethrough--you'll have to get into the html of the post. Surround the word 'del' with carrots in front and back,like this < del > but without the spaces. Place that in front of the word that you want to strikethrough. Then after the word you put carrots around '/del' like this- < / del > but again without the spaces. Apparently this html is not allowed in comments, however!
