Basic HTML Tutorial – Learn To Change and Adapt HTML Codes

HTML stands for Hyper Link Markup Language. It’s necessary a blogger knows how to use HTML as a lot of the customization for the blog is done in HTML. You don’t have to be a genius to learn basic HTML, its very simple and could be effective in making and maintaining anything that uses HTML. It’s a skill you will keep for life.


HTML does look confusing but its actually very simple. Let’s start of with a few translations that you will see in your blogger blog HTML:

  • <H1> stands for your header of your paragraph/post.
  • <TITLE> is the title of your page.
  • <BODY> is the main body of your blog such as posts.
  • <p> stands for a paragraph. The text in-between <p> and </p> is the paragraph.

HTML works on a rule that ‘if it starts, it has to finish by placing a ‘/’. They come in pairs where the first pair starts whatever it is and the last pair finishes it. For example, if I wanted something to be bold, I would put <b> and then I would put </b> so the HTML knows I’ve ended the bold.


For different types of fonts:

  • <b> and </b> make text bold.
  • <i> and </i> make text italic.
  • <strike> and </strike> make text strike through.
  • <font size=”x”. x is a number that makes the font big or small.
  • face=”x”. x is a word that represents the font such as Times New Roman.
