Today's something new I learned...

Something new I learned today is how to blog stuff in italics. While blogging stuff in italics may seem like no big deal to most, I am what my siblings refer to as the "technically challenged" one in the family, as they all do fancy stuff like "photoshop" and use digital camera's with like 16 megapixels and otherwise I wouldn't even know these things actually exist. My camera has four megapixels and feels rather inferior to my siblings Leica's and 16 megapixel camera's which is why I am glad it is so small so that it can easily hideout whenever my siblings cameras are around. Tomorrow I might try other fancy-schmancy stuff, like changing font sizes, but today, I am quite satisfied to have learned how to blog in italics.

Can links be far behind?!?!?

You're only two behind me.

put "strong" and "/strong" inside the little greater-than/less than thingies to bold in between.

For a link, the first set of thingies say "a href="http://(URL)" and at the end of the link you put "/a" again in the thingies.

If you figure out colors and stuff, let me know.

I'm a somewhat repressed technogeek but good writing speaks for itself, italics, boldface, links regardless!

I have been learning as I go. I was shocked with myself when I learned how to link. Blogger gives some helpful hints. My friends think I am so cool. Little do they know!

Taking small steps works best.

Unlike Kristina, I'm an unrepressed, through and through, no hiding it, technogeek.

I've never used Blogger but this page seems to define what tags can be used on Blogger.

You are likely not as "technically challenged" as I am. Can anyone tell me how to make links from text (i.e; actual words that link to another site) within my blog?
