How to effectively compose in Word?
The most important thing to notice is when you try to copy and paste your blog post content from Word to WordPress then if it would copy exactly the same way it was written by you then you have composed content in the latest version of doc called docx (the x means – XML).
So, the docx format helps in preserving the content format the way you have done it in Word because some of us have a habit of saving Word document in 97-2003 format which isn’t effective as it increases our burden as we have to format content twice.
Avoid Content styling twice (Once in Word and then again in WordPress)
Not using MS word?
If you aren’t using the paid version of MS word instead of using Word by other vendors like Google or Kingsoft who offer free Office tools (at least with basic features). Then, one simple idea is, don’t do any formatting when you are writing you content itself instead you compose your content first with some basic rules like headings in a new line and highlight them with bold and if quotes and other special content need special highlighting then position them in a new line so that you can easily style after copying to WordPress.
So, you can compose your content with some basic style (or) format and once you complete copying content to WordPress you can do advanced styling like Headings, Quotations etc. ( as some basic styling like bold, new line, italic etc are retained even while copying doc format content as well)
Hence, by following above tips you can help you in copying your blog’s content from Word to WordPress swiftly with reduced burden because smart work pays more dividends than plain hard work.
Compose your content smartly in your Word and Copy it swiftly to WordPress after which you can do both Styling and Proof-reading.
