Markdown Basics

Need to put some fancy stuff in your write.as or your gmail? Markdown is the tool. Here are some shortcuts I use all the time.

Headings

# Heading one is made by starting a line with a hash and a space.
## Heading two is made by starting a line with a hash and a space.

Blockquotes

This is what it looks like if you have a block quote. A block quote is a block of text that is longer than one line in APA format, but in Markdown, it’s much simpler than that. I kept making the mistake of not skipping a space after the previous line. This does not make a block quote!

> Quoted text
