I need to apologise to you my dear Readers, I don’t profess any technical proficiency in anything at all, and often when I’m posting I get rather tied up in knots.
I started making posts in “Draft” format, but if you edit stuff and then just want to quickly update I found to my dismay that it was all to easy to forget to press “draft” again, and it would publish, Ready or not!. (Grrr)
Then I switched to using the “Publish On” scheduling feature that allows me to queue ready-made completed posts and publish them at the time and date I want. I find it better than “draft” but not perfect … one aspect I constantly have troubles with is the date layout in the dashboard : it’s Month, Day , Year method in the style that North Americans will be well used to but which confuses the hector out of me since I’m used to Day-Month-Year.
Since I’m trying to schedule posts I often have to look twice or three time at the, and even then, it happens semi regularly that I think I’m setting up a draft post in for 6 August (06-08-10) and instead it’s on 08-06-10 and worse, it posts immediately!!! (ouch!)
Today I did it again!!!… Yes, I quickly removed it when I saw it later, but my humble apologies for posting these little blips of posts that I really wasn’t intending the world to see (before they are ready at least).
Aggggh, I WILL try and get better at (not) doing this I promise.
… back to Blogging!
