Blog Edits Gone Wrong

Friday evening seemed to be going well. Busy Dad was getting things done, spending time with the family, preparing for work, doing a little self development time, and a quick stop by the blog for an update. (Think of the sound of a needle scratching across a record; for the chronologically unadvanced, similar to the CD not playing correctly) It is like the universe skipped a beat.

First the post didn't really save. Then the movement of blog elements when horribly wrong. The blogs I like to read went bye-bye. Of course I didn't discover this immediately. Trying to multi-task I had a couple things going on at the same time. (This is a recipe for disaster!)

Second, the spell check isn’t working on Blogspot.com. Well, I have a long list of current and former teachers who can already attest to my lack of skill with the written and spoken English language. Not having spell check exposes my faulty keyboard to ridicule. You know. Because it must be the keyboard spelling all those words wrong, not really, it is the loose nut behind it.

Finally, maybe I wasn’t on top of my game posting while trying to edit the blog. Back to the multi-tasking thing! Anyway, I will fix the blog over the weekend, check in with my fellow bloggers that I enjoy reading and work to discover some new blogging horizons.

Hi, I've seen your name on a few blogrolls and finally decided it was time to pay you a visit.

Don't you love the collective stomach roll and heart sink when you realise something's went terribly wrong? It's a bad, bad feeling. I hope you can get it back and it's better than you hoped!

Think about Wordpress. Much more stable and many more creative options...

I'm glad it's not just me that Blogger won't spell-check! (I have perfect spelling, of course; it's my typing that's dodgy!)
