How To Copy From Microsoft Word to Blogger

Ms Word of Microsoft Office is one of the most popular typing softwares. Lots of people use it; some of them are bloggers using Blogspot as their publishing platform. In blogging, it is considered more effective to write a post offline first, and after it is ready to be published, internet connection is plugged / used. Related to Blogger, copying posts from Ms Word to Blogger directly can be tricky without the right methods.

I you have experienced it; you will know that when you copy some text from Ms Word directly to Blogger, a lot of complicated tags / codes in the HTML section are created to handle the transfer. They will cause some problems in setting the article, such as in changing font size, color, etc.

There is a very easy method to overcome this matter. When we copy some texts from Ms Word directly to Blogger, don’t paste it on “compose” but instead, on “edit HTML”. Therefore, Blogger will not create special tags for the texts transferred from Ms Word. Your text will be considered the same as if you write it on “write” section.

In case you need more systematic guide, here they are:
  • Select the text that you want to publish in Blogger from your Ms Word document / file.
  • Right click, choose “copy”, or press ctrl + c in your keyboard.
  • Go to Blogger >> create new post.
  • Click “edit HTML”.
  • Right click on the blank space; choose “paste”, or press ctrl + v on your keyboard.
  • Click “compose”, and you are free to continue from here, no funny tags will be added.
When I started blogging (still fresh newbie), I wrote my posts on Ms Word documents first before publishing them. I copied and pasted directly to “write” section on Blogger. As I have mentioned above, the added funny tags caused the posts to behave strangely, mostly, not responding to some font editing. This is a simple matter, but if we don’t know it, problems arise.
