Help!!, Frustrated and Confused

Anyone from the book blogging ocmmunity that uses blogger I can use your help.
Sometimes when I am using my blog I feel helpless, frustrated and confused. I see other bloggers use blogger and they are able to do what I seem not to be able to.

For example, when I am posting pictures on my blog. I want it a certain way. But the system on blogger doesn't allow me to. But, I see that other blogger users are able to have pictures on their blog at strategic sites. When I do it is only appears on the top of my blog post. I can't seem to get it to do it at certain parts of my blog when I talking about something. Many times I had to post two times one with pictures and the other with my writting post with the same topic. Sounds stupid, doesn't it.

Another thing if I am writting, then realize while I am writing that I should have used quotes I realize that I need to start over. Blogger won't allow. I have to start over my entire post. Blogger won't allow me to start over.

I hard time reading instructions when it is too technical. Help! anyone with blogger account or knows anything about blogger would be greatly appreciated.

Someone more experienced might be able to explain this better, but you can move your pictures around with cut and paste in "Edit HTML" but not "Compose." You should be able to make text bold in either one. I don't know what you mean about not being able to quote.

You will have to learn at least a little bit of HTML if you want to manipulate items in your posts.

If I'm stuck, I usually Google "html codes" to find what I need (or sometimes ask other bloggers!).

I'm sure you'll get lots of helpful responses, but maybe this can get you started. Good luck!

For the pictures when you upload them they will always show up at the top of your blog but then all you have to do is click on them and drag them down to where you want them. Make sure when you upload them you put them to the left, right or centre and they'll stay that way when you drag them down.

I'm not sure what you mean on making the quote or the bold statement and going back. Do you mean going back to plain writing? If so, then just hit enter more than once and it should let you start writing again. YOu can always fix line spacing in the edit html that's beside your compose button.

Make sense?
