Yesterday I came across a post about breaking through writer’s block – something that’s been happening to me frequently lately.
The article contained a link to some printable blogging calendars (who knew those existed?) and I was happily working away, planning out articles.
One of the articles on my ‘to-be-written’ list was about men and dancing in SL. Feeling inspired, I wrote the post and then set it to publish today.
Or so I thought.
Twice now in the last week, when scheduling my posts, I have hit the ‘0’ key instead of the ‘1’ when entering the date to publish. I, of course, am unaware of my mistake, until I see the post and think, “Why did that publish now?”
I did it yesterday with the ‘Men Don’t Dance’ post. I was going to just reschedule it (in effect, removing the post and publishing it again on the correct date), but someone had already commented on it. So – yay! that someone had already read it and commented, and boo! to me for not noticing it posting early/incorrectly.
Hopefully with my shiny new blogging calendar, I can avoid this happening in the future.
Wish me luck!
