You can use this editor to insert basic text and to add different media like photographs and videos. There are a couple of different ways you can format your text with size options, font styles, paragraph, block quote and bullets etc. What really makes Blogger so easy and flexible is that it gives you the option to go into the HTML side of your composition and do all sorts of things with your posts that you would do with normal HTML.

Formatting Options in Blogger Post Editor:

Blogger post editor comes with a small set of formatting options for beginners who are not familiar with how HTML tags work. Due to this, even first time bloggers can make professional looking blog posts. In later sections, we will see how to incorporate almost any kind of HTML in our posts to achieve high-end, superbly presented blog posts.

Blogger provides two types of views in its post editor. Already provided formatting options are available for the ‘Compose’ tab where user gets to see how blog text will actually appear in the post. We discuss this section for now. All we do here can be seen in HTML format by clicking on the HTML tab just next to the Compose tab. We will leave the HTML tab for advanced levels.
