italics and bold

Okay, so Memory and Emma Margaret  asked me how to do italics and bold in comments on Blogger!
It's actually a lot more simple than I thought it would be!
So, here's an example:
Amelia Earhart used to eat purple, chocolate covered clowns.
And now you want to emphasize some of those words!
So, for the italics, you do this:
<i>chocolate covered</i>

And for the bold you do this:

If you want to do both italics and bold, you do this

All together, your comment {before you submit it} will look like this:
Amelia Earhart <b>used</b> to eat purple, <i>chocolate covered</i> <i><b>clowns</b></i>.

So, did that make sense? I hope it helped! :)


  1. Is this it? I think I got it. If it works, I'll start doing it on other blogs!


  2. That is So cool!!!!

    PS Did it work =P

  3. I am going to try it out on wordpress too.
    Is this it?

    1. That's it! :) Though I'm not sure it'll work on Wordpress blogs... might as well give it a try, though!

    2. It works on Wordpress too!!!!

    3. Oh, well that's cool!!!! :)

  4. I had no idea Amelia ate clowns! I will forever look at her in a differnt light. (; Thanks for the tutorial!


    1. Well that's because most history books and biographies leave out that one small fact... Which is really quite a shame since it was her favorite snack! ;)
      I'm glad I could help!

  5. Ooooh! That was cool of you to do that, Trinka. I had to ask one of the bloggers that I follow back when I first started because I knew there was a way to make it work. =) It can be a tad bit irritating to bracket the italics and bolds, or whatever it is you are doing, but it is still great.

    BTW: your new header font and iPod "thingy" are really cute. =)

    1. Yeah, the only reason I taught myself how to do it is because I saw you using it! :)
      And thank you!

  6. Trinka, I am soooo happy that you put the "180" movie on your sidebar! We need to share it with everyone we know!

  7. Hi Trinka.

    I love your new header. So cute!!!

  8. That's really neat! It's a great trick! And you're right- it's really easy!

  9. Hey! Thanks for the comments on my blog! :)

    And yes, I do know three languages... English, Spanish, and a little bit of French.


Hey! Thanks for stopping by this little blog of mine! :) I reeeeeally like comments and if you do, it'll make my day! If you comment, I will {most probably!} reply with a comment of my own :)
