Blogger posts using email: 2nd try

Charlie as a puppy in our front yard in Aspen

This is a second try at posting a blog entry using Blogger’s built-in Mail-to-Blogger feature. The difference this time is that I am embedding HTML tags in the text to see if they will provide greater control over formatting and links.<br><br>So this new post is also an experiment, sent from my regular email account, that contains another old photo of Charlie as a puppy, this time sized at 400x300 pixels, along with a Google Maps link to the exact location where he was sitting when the photo was taken: <a href=",-106.895943&ie=UTF8&z=12&om=1">Google Maps link to Charlie</a>. Let’s see if it works any better this time…

Follow-up: In a word, no. It did not work any better. Blogger does not automatically interpret HTML tags from email postings, so I guess that means I need to stick to straight text from now on and just accept the formatting that Blogger puts into place. Lesson learned.
