You don't have to understand HTML to be able to use it. Example code for image

link icon Many beginning bloggers have problems with the uploading of images in Blogger. This is because Blogger always upload the image to the top of the post irrespective of where the position of the mouse cursor is. Now if you use the COMPOSE mode, you will have to use the clumsy process of drag and drop to get the image to where you want it to be. I find this very cumbersome especially if you have to drag it very far down the post.

I would advise you to use the EDIT HTML mode instead. Sure in this mode you cannot see the image. However, it is very easy to copy-paste or cut-paste the image to anywhere you want it. You may have noticed that tiny screen shot of the photo upload icon right at the beginning of this post (used the NONE option for position). The script for the image is:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImage();}
catch(e) {}" href="
link+icon.jpg"><img style="cursor:pointer;
cursor:hand;" src="
border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5218132242"

Now that looks like a bunch of gibberish doesn't it? However, no fear as you don't have to understand what is all that gibberish as you can just copy-paste it anywhere you want. For example, I am going to copy-paste it here: link icon. Done. Very simple. Imagine trying to successively having to drag it down the page. Copy-pasting is so much simpler. I can easily add another link icon here by just left-clicking on the mouse and selecting PASTE. So what if you don't know what all that gibberish is all about. You should be able to paste the script anywhere you want, even in another blog post or sidebar or even in the blog Header.
