    For some reason, I can’t break the bottom text into paragraphs. They don’t show.
    It’s my first post I have published. I removed a portion of the text and tweaked a few sentences.

    I’m so glad to see you here is the title of that blog post. If you read down. The bottom paragraphs are scooped together even though when I edit, they show me they are seperated.
    HELP!

    The blog I need help with is annalabno.com.

    I recommend using the classic editor at Dashboard > Posts > Add New

    If you are copying and pasting from a word processing document like Microsoft WORD please read this https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/the-paste-as-word-button-has-been-removed-from-the-visual-editor?replies=3

    Blog editors and word processors are not the same and do not work the same way. The web standard is one blank line only, so you cannot add more blank lines by pressing return repeatedly like you would do with a typewriter or in a word processing application. If you want to learn how to format and space your posts and pages see:

    P.S. When you create a new post, always make sure the Format tool is set to Paragraph before you start typing. It’s in the Visual editor Row 2 first position “style”. See the illustration here http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#row-2 If you forget to do that then edit the post, highlight all in the Visual editor, select Paragraph from the Format tool, switch editor to Text then switch back to Visual and click Update.

    What helped me was to change it to text view. Then I took out extra spaces that I didn’t place. And I took out codes for italics. Yay. I didn’t put them there, but somehow they showed up. This was the easiest fix for me. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner.

    I didn’t copy wording from wordperfect documents. I was using Paragraph format as well. So I don’t know what happened. But I’m glad it’s fixed now.

    I’m writing how I fixed these issues, so others don’t have to go through pain trying to fix it using a long and more complicated process.

    Blessings! And thank you!
