Going Into HTML Mode

Previously I used to use Blogger to write blog posts using Compose mode. I just typed in my text. The output was a sort of WYSIWYG feedback. The resulting posts looked good. I especially liked the ability to put some space between my paragraphs. Then I started to notice that the paragraphs would be bunched up next to each other. Must have been some sort of Blogger update for the worse.

I had invested a lot in my blogs. It would be a chore to rehost them somewhere other than Blogger. So I changed the way I worked with Blogger. I dropped down to using the HTML view to enter my blog posts. I know enough HTML to ensure the paragraphs have space in between them.

I should not have to know HTML to make this happen. Does anyone else notice the spacing problem between paragraphs. Surely someone other than me is experiencing this fail. Good thing Blogger has me tied down to the platform.
