    Is it possible to copy and paste from Microsoft word to make a blog post? I have an essay in word that would be so much easier to copy and paste rather than re-typing it. Thanks for the help.

    The blog I need help with is teeveebee.wordpress.com.

    Yes but here’s what to do first. Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”
    Please see here so you know how to do this correctly http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text
    Best wishes with your blog. :)

    I’d like to suggest that you consider using Windows Live Writer in the future.

    Windows Live Wrtiter will create a backup on your own computer of every post and page you create in it and publish to your blog from it. You’re welcome and happy blogging.
