Screw delayed gratification

For those of you that regularly visit this blog (insofar as there are any that fit this description), the plethora of posts might come as a surprise. Since I refuse to blame myself for anything other than global warming, I blame Blogger.

Here's what happened: I had a whole bunch of little snippets written down for my Freeze Frame series, and instead of leaving them on my comp, I decided to leave them as drafts on Blogger. Yesterday evening, I spent a fair bit of time uploading them. The plan was to post them one a day, so as to create the illusion of being a regular blogger.

Trouble is, Blogger apparently indexes posts based on the creation date, not posting date. Which means that, even if I held off on posting any of these for the next 20 days, they'd still appear online dated 18 July 2007. Which I find damned inconvenient. So I decided to screw the whole plan and post them all. I might go back and edit a few here and there, but there it is.

The downside, of course, is that I might be all blogged out. Which may or may not be a good thing from your point of view.

You could have used "Post Options" to change Publish date/time and achieved your purpose without fornicating delayed gratification.
But try it the next time you get your mojo back :)

Ah well, too late to change things, I guess. Thanks for the tip anyway. Will keep it in mind next time around. If there is one, that is.

U can change the date while posting. I had the same issue when i was posting some of my earlier articles. And then i discovered this.
