I need help with a simple html pull quote, please

I once had a simple, simple html code for a pull quote like the one here.
Can anyone teach me how to do a pull quote like this? I don’t do a lot of code, and this code was ridiculously simple (it would have to be for me to understand how to do it :>) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Did you know . ….

Did you know . . .

Now you can display your Instagram photos directly into your WordPress blog? How cool is that?
Another feature that makes WordPress the best blogging site in the blogosphere!
I’m going to do this as soon as I get a spare moment.
Here’s a link to the video that teaches us how to do it.

Why do you blog?

Do you blog . . .

  • A. to help others?
  • B. to inform, inspire, motivate or encourage others?
  • C. to have fun?
  • D. to sell a product or service or solicit clients?
  • If you picked an answer other than C, don’t you hope your message is easy to read? Don’t you want readers to understand and benefit from your post?

    If you answered “Yes” to either question, my Write On Target Tuesday tip topics will help you do both.

    Look for my Write On Target tip topics to appear here on BloggersMeetup #DailyDiscussions real soon! I’ll be sharing knowledge and experience I gained from my more-than-three-decade career as a professional writer, editor, English and Composition teacher and blogger.

    Here are a few of the Write on Target tip topics we’ll tackle:

  • The most important words in any blog post
  • What’s the difference between affect and effect?
  • How to write a bad blog post
  • How to write a blog post readers will read
  • Ditch wimpy words
  • Who are you writing to?
  • Why adverbs stink
  • Why verbs rock

Never suffer from writer’s block again. Ever!

I read posts occasionally from writers who claim to be suffering from what they call Writer’s Block. Isn’t that goofy? They’re writing about not having anything to say. Isn’t that writing?
I’ve written about writer’s block before in this space, but today I’m offering a permanent, guaranteed cure for writer’s block.
If you’ll do these two things consistently, you’ll crush that writer’s block demon forever.
1. Use a notebook
I keep a notebook right by my mouse pad. Sometimes I’ll be writing a post or an email and get an idea for another post, or something I need to do that day. My notebook is full of reminders, lists, notes-to-self, addresses, phone numbers, Bible quotes, passwords, emails, quotes, tweets, recipes and more. I don’t feel comfortable writing at my laptop without my trusted notebook at my fingertips as well. I can’t count the number of times I was thinking and praying about writing a blog post. I thumbed through my journal pages and found just what I was looking for: the inspiration for my next blog post.


2. Keep blog post drafts
As I write this I have 211 post drafts in my draft folder. Some drafts are completed posts, some are guest posts, some are posts with content and no title, some are posts with titles and no content, some are sketchy rough drafts, some are quotes I may use in future posts, some are just notes-to-self about a topic or subject I’d like to blog about later. When I’m needing inspiration for a blog post, I merely scroll through my drafts until something jumps off the page and becomes fodder for a new blog post.

Do these two things and you’ll never suffer from writer’s block again. Guaranteed.
Editor’s Note: If you still can’t think of anything to write about after you’ve flipped through your notebook and exhausted draft topics, you may have to concede that you don’t have something to say. (Remember the first rule of all writing is: have something to say.
Do you think this will help your writing?
I’d love to get your feedback on this one.

I wrote this today for a few different prompts that I like to do. I also decided to try to figure out if my angle of the story is clear? I signed up with Blogging U for the shape your story and really have no clue what I am doing. Thanks for any feedback!
