Helene, it’s been a while since I’ve been in the blogger interface but I do believe in the post editor you have the choice between Compose or HTML. If you use the HTML window you can manually add h tags. If you’re in the compose menu, I think there’s a drop down box you can use that lets you choose between “normal, heading, sub heading, etc”. Normal would be a regular paragrahp and heading is probably h2, subheading is probably h3 etc. I hope that helps!
