And Another One... Or Four...

Exploring things a little, I have stumbled upon the Apostle to Suburbia, aka Leeann Balbirona. It appears that she is a very busy lady... looks like she's into homeschooling, and she has not one, but FOUR blogs, all current! The other three are Catholic Mother, Lake Stevens Catholic and Holy Cross Building Committee...

...boy, do I feel inadequate! I have problems keeping up with just one blog...

Yikes I think my brain would melt if I had FOUR blogs!

I really enjoyed your blog. How do you get your pictures to stagger so nicely through your posts?

GOD BLESS!!

Why thank you, Michelle...

The answer to your question is "by trial and error..."

Well, ok, there is a little more planning involved: If I want to have a post with more than one photo, I upload them separately so that I can vary the size and/or the location.

I tend to use large photos centred. I use left and right for my small and medium photos, depending on the size of the paragraph (that's the trial and error bit)

The photo is uploaded to the top of the post, so I go to the HTML view tab and then cut the photo code (remembering to delete the extra space that results, so that the first paragraph doesn't start a line or two down) and paste it at the beginning of the relevant paragraph.

The important thing is not to consider the whole thing over once its published. I always look at the blog, and edit if necessary to move the picture to a different paragraph, to remove (or add) extra spaces, or to change the size of the photo...

It's easy once you get used to it. But it requires patience.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Strong Woman! About the four blogs...to be fair, I only created three of them. I only contribute (and very irregularly) to my friend Melissa's blog "Catholic Mother." "Apostle to Suburbia" is my main blog. "Lake Stevens Catholic" is just a warehouse for the 400-word column I write for our local weekly newspaper once a month. And "Holy Cross Building Committee" is really a bulletin board for my parish building project.

Now, how many days left in May that the MP can possibly come out??? Back to your regularly scheduled countdown. :)
