I was at a meeting today where the guest speaker was giving strategies to effectively writing blogs. As a person who juggles four (yes, four) blogs, I was an interested participant. I learned something I never knew…

When I copy and paste my post that I wrote in a Word document into this template, if I don’t save that document into a plain text or notebook format, I can pick up some crazy characters on my blog post. You may have noticed some either here or on my newsletters. I never knew how that happened.

My instructor gave me the solution, which I detailed above. Here it is again. If you type out your blog first on a Word document, when you save it, make sure instead of saving it as a word document, you save it as plain text or notebook format. There is a drop down button at the bottom of the “Save As” box. This will keep you crazy character free. A big thanks to her for that useful information.
