Okay, there are certain glitches to blogger. Can't complain since it is a free service.
Ever notice how sometimes you will leave a line in between paragraphs but it does not work? The blank line disappears? I have tried various things - that work - but the easiest thing is to space 3 times and then hit backspace once before typing. You will always get the blank line between paragraphs. I hit on that by accident.
If your picts do not load in compose mode, for whatever issue blogger is having, just publish your post. Go back in and edit. While you are in edit mode, then load your pictures and it will work. Don't know why, but blogger posted a message about this awhile back.
Just a public service announcement to blogger users.
