Friday Five – Things I Forget to do When I Post

  • Catch errors – I try, I really do. I use spell check. But I read what I meant, instead of what is there. Invariably I will see a typo immediately after publishing the post. Thank goodness for the “edit” feature.
  • Save and Continue Editing vs. Publish – When I have an idea, I jot it in the post area. If I would “save and continuing editing” WordPress will save the post as a draft. Too often I wham the publish button, and my notes show up in my RSS reader sometime later.
  • Adding Plugins – I changed to WordPress.org because I have seen some neat plugins that WordPress.com wouldn’t support. So far, I have failed to install Feedburner Feedsmith and Related Posts.
  • Get the time right – I know it’s military time, so I can tell what time it is now. But it slows me down when I want to figure out what time it will be at 10 a.m. tomorrow so I can pre-publish a post.
  • Categorize – again thank goodness for the edit button. When I am fixing my typos, I can categorize too.

After I pre-published this, I previewed it. I’ll be damned if I didn’t find a typo. I read this post six times. I’m clairvoyant – I see things that aren’t there. If you want a real writer go here. If you want a word worker go here. If you want plugin advice try here.

If you want an attytood stay here.
