Center Alignment in Blog Posts

Why is it that when I tried to center (align) the paragraphs in my blog (as opposed to aligning them to the left), the entire blog post expanded and stretched out to fill the whole page?

There is the link... I center aligned both paragraphs, a separate line, and a photograph (in a blog post) and it ends up stretching beyond the given parameters every time I try to submit a post. I'm sorry for the hassle, I've just never had a problem with this.

It's my latest blog post titled "Purses/clutches for the modern aesthetic...", you will see what I mean when I say I'm having problem with alignment... I hope.

Hello,
I have taken a look at your latest blog post and centered the picture in the post, how do you want the text to be aligned? If you can let me know I will give it a try.

Thanks,
Emmy

I would like the text to be centered, not aligned to the left... I took another look and my text stretches out so far that I need to use the bottom scroll and move it all the way to the right in order to see it... I would just like it to be centered over the picture, please. Thank you.

Hello Colin,
I am sorry I did not respond to you sooner, I was out of the office for a few days. When I look at your blog post it appears to be centered over the image in the post, this is what I am seeing:

Hey Emmy, it's quite alright. That's strange because, for some reason, the way it appears on my screen is this:

Hi Colin
 

Thanks for posting the screen shot of how your blog page displays on your screen.  I've checked in mine, and it displays the same as Emmy's.  However, when I checked the HTML code of your blog, it looks as though you might have pasted from an external source directly into your blog.  When you do this, it can cause problems with display and formatting.  It might not show up right away and not in every browser.  It looks like this is what we are seeing now.

We have fixed the code on your latest blog post, but in future, you may want to keep this in mind.  Here is a link to a tutorial which explains it in more detail: My site won't load in the Sitebuilder.

Thank you
Nazlie
