Simple HTML…Creating more space between paragraphs

Posted on February 1, 2008. Filed under: HTML Basics | Tags: |

I have yet to perfect and be able to use HTML coding to it’s full capacity. However, I am going to share some of the basic ways you can customize your work. It’s amazing how much the little things matter when you finally start to figure them out.

So, one of the most common codes that I use is the <br/> This little piece of code will add some extra room between each of your paragraphs for example. Let’s assume that you are typing up an article, whether it be for your own blog or whatever. You type it all in, you have space between the paragraphs, and all seems fine. You save and post then take a look at the site.

Now everything seems to look just a little bit too close. I personally like to have enough spacing between my paragraphs so that they sort of set themselves apart. Most people don’t read through every single word that you have written, especially if your post looks long and is hard to read. By having that extra separation between each paragraph, creating smaller blocks for the reader, I feel it just makes it better all around.

Anyhow, if you want to create an extra “gap” or “line” between your paragraphs, all you have to do is add the <br/> code after each paragraph. If one doesn’t do the trick for you, then add another. Like this…


It is such a simple, easy to use concept. It’s kind of funny now because you have no idea how much time I spent wondering how in the world people could get their stuff so nicely laid out and how mine always ran together. It’s the little things.
