Quick Blogging Tip

All yesterday I was being annoyed by the need to write up my blog posts in another editor and paste them over into WordPress.  You have to do that because composing text longer than about 3 sentences in a browser window is taking your life in your hands.  But I discovered even in cutting and pasting from Wordpad you get formatting inserted that drives the TinyMCE editor crazy.  And Notepad was giving me line break problems.  (And it needs not be said that you should never ever paste from Word…)

But Robert cued me in to PureText, which is a little Windows addon that strips all formatting from text when you cut/paste it.  By default you Windows+V instead of Control+V and voila, no crap.  Yay!
