For some reason, Blogger has begun to insert huge line breaks between paragraphs. I press Enter once to create a break between paragraphs but Blogger inserts code for two empty lines instead of one between paragraphs. Then I have to remove these extra empty lines manually which is an incredible drag. I'd rather be writing something interesting instead of struggling with these line breaks. It doesn't happen always, though, and I haven't been able to understand Blogger's logic in inserting empty lines between paragraphs.
You'd say it doesn't matter but it does matter to me. I don't like messy looking texts. I always persecute students with demands that all essays should be written in the MLA format: no cover pages, no cutesy fonts, no smiley faces in the text, no bold type for titles, consistency in the font and letter size, consistent margins, no line breaks between paragraphs, a well-organized bibliography. A messy looking text betrays an incoherence of thinking that informed it.
This is why I'm so annoyed with the lack of control that Blogger offers me over the way the text of my posts looks.
