Learning basic HTML for blogging – with free printable

It’s been six months since I first clicked the publish button on this little blog!

When I started blogging, I had no idea how much is involved to continuously write, design, publicize, and maintain a blog.  I’ve been on a steep learning curve over the last six months, and I continue to learn more each day.  I enjoy new challenges, so it’s been a fun and rewarding experience!

One of the things I’ve had to figure out along the way is how to use HTML coding.

With WordPress.org as my blogging platform, I can do a lot without having to dive into HTML.  Thankfully, it’s easy to get started and publish simple posts.  But I’ve needed to go beyond the standard visual post editor on a few occasions, and that required learning some basic HTML.

Searching online, it’s been easy enough to find what I need to know.  I don’t use HTML often enough to memorize all the codes, though.  Along the way, I bookmarked sites and scribbled notes for myself.

Ultimately I decided that I needed a solid list of basic HTML codes for reference to speed up the process.  Since I like things that are handy and pretty, I put it together in a nice, colorful, printable list that I can keep in my blogging binder.

I’m happy to provide my list of basic HTML coding here as my first free printable!  I hope it’s helpful for other newbie bloggers like myself  who need a little cheat sheet for HTML.

Are there other handy HTML codes I haven’t included on my basic HTML printable that you use regularly?

Note:  I also had to learn how to add this basic HTML printable to my blog.  Thanks to Becca at Amuse Your Bouche for her post with simple instructions!

I shared my basic HTML printable at some of these link parties.
