May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Would you be so kind to explain something to me....

Hi Friends,
I'm trying to create a blog post of my task/cleaning schedule that I wrote about a few days ago. I have it typed out in 3 columns in Microsoft word. When I try and place it in the post here, it just makes it one long list that looks like a mess. So....I tried saving it as a PDF file because I've seen bloggers have tutorials and things in a PDF format. I still cannot get it to post here or I should say, I cannot copy and paste it in its PDF format.

Would one or more of you kind, KIND readers explain to me how to get something I've written in Microsoft Word to appear on my blog post without it distorting my columns. It doesn't have to be a PDF file, just whatever will work to get it posted.

Please tell me this made sense what I'm asking. I sure hope someone can help me. Anybody???
With warm blessings,

The best was I can think to make three columns in your blog is to use an HTML table. Of course if you don't know HTML then it won't be as easy. Have you ever used Google Docs? We use that at work to format email messages at work and use tables to format memos and such.

I don't know technology enough to answer well. I know that blogger moves stuff around to fit, so it might turn out wonky anyway. Google it?

Morgan suggests that you upload an attachment that others could download. She says the width of your post is probably the reason it won't post in the three column form. Maybe this will help.

You might try copying and pasting the Word document into Notepad. Then copy it out of Notepad and into the Blogger editor. Maybe that will work better, because Word messes with the HTML coding and does strange things to it and is not a good place to transfer from. Hope this helps and works!
