Blogging Tips...


This post is for those of you that have asked
me how to make hearts ♥♥♥...

To make hearts: press the ALT {hold it down} and
then push the 3 on your number pad. The 3 at the
top of your keyboard will not work.If you are on
a laptop then FN+ALT+L = ♥

To make the copyright symbol: ALT+0169 (using the
numeric keypad) for the PC Option+G for the MAC.

There are tons of helpful sites to learn from. I
search often to find new tips. I am still learning
and have found everyday there are new tools available.

Please leave tips for blogging in your comments on this
post not only for me but for my readers to benefit from!
Thank You very much, let us all spread some blogging ♥!

I wondered how you do ♥ THAT! Hmmm. What happens if I do alt + 4? Opps! nothing good. What about Alt 1? ☺ Cool! Alt + 1 makes a smilie face! ☻ or use alt 2 for that one. Fun. Thanks for sharing.

What a cute picture! Thank you for this post! Here is a tip with lots of ♥. To have your signature pop up for every post: Go to dashboard, Click on settings then click on formatting, then scroll to bottom where it reads POST template insert your signature HTML there and click save.

That's great. I'm going to try it now...hmmm, didn't work for me. Wah! I'll have to try it on my home keyboard.

Lara said...

My best tip is to post pictures under the html tab and never the compose tab. It just works better that way! :)

Thanks for the ♥ trick! Exciting to know! And look at that! 4, 5 and 6 make the rest of the suits. ♦ ♣ ♠

There is a way to do it on the LAPTOP!!!!!!!

You just do the blue Fn key AND the Alt key ....then the BLUE number 3....not the normal 3...it is on the key of L or J I think...(not using my laptop right now) anywho....it will do the ♥ for you!!!!

SPREAD THE ♥♥♥!!!
