Each blogger has a specific writing style but it doesn't mean every post follows the same format. But there could be scenarios where bloggers would follow a specific format in a series. Think of a blogger writing about a 30 day challenge.
Can you see? The headings can be repetitive :) Obviously, the description will be different each day. Mmm... What if headings populate automatically with relevant styles when we start to compose next post? Yeah, you just need to write the description and change the number in sub-heading instead of starting from scratch.
Can't visualize? Alright. Let's think about another simple example - A Writing Challenge. Below you can find two posts of that series and I've put the together, so you can compare what's common.
Both posts follow same formatting and you just need to change the number in main heading, and last word is never be the same through the series. You can simply take a copy of post #08 and make minor changes to reflect post #09 easily rather than writing post #09 from scratch. Got my point? ;).
Are you going through or willing to start writing a similar series of posts or articles? These are basic examples but you can use the idea behind it for posts with advanced formatting too. Let's stop doing hard work but be SMART. Shall we?
If you are on Blogger blogging platform, you can use pre-formatting for posts. The feature is called as Post Template. How does it work? Well, you need some knowledge of HTML basics if it's just not about text but application of styles. You can type in what needs to be appeared on post editor and same will be appeared when you create a new post.
What if you don't need the formatting anymore? Nothing to worry about. You can remove the pre-formatting and your post editor will be blank when you create a new post again. Are you in need of pre-formatting?
