Really, I am blogging

Yesterday morning, I wrote this HUGE funny post about not writing. I dragged all kinds of friends in - I quoted Eileen and Heidi, I made fun of my rampant neurosis, I romped all over the page.

And then I thought, You know, people are always complaining about how Blogger eats their posts. They don't seem to know how to CTRL+A to select all, and then CTRL+C to copy, just so if they lose a post they can get it back, lickety split.

And then, like the trusting fool I am, I CTRL+A'd, and on my way to hit CTRL+C to copy? The entire thing disappeared.

Let me rephrase that: the entire fucking thing fucking DISAPPEARED on me. No amount of "Recover post"ing helped, either.

So you'll just have to make do with this.

I promise I'm coming back. It's just my process.

AND INCIDENTALLY. Apparently hitting CTRL+C and then hitting one of the arrow keys is exactly what deletes posts. Not that it works that way in any other application. Thank you, Blogger. Thanks. No really.

In Firefox, if you hit the back button, it will take you back to the page where that post still exists. Sometimes, anyway. Worth a try!

I'm on Joomla, and it works okay, but sucks because it doesn't provide hyperlinks to commenter's sites. My web designer is working on getting me on Blogger. I guess every application has it's ups and downs. Do you recommend Blogger? The application Eileen uses seems to always work. So many questions.

I always pre-write my stuff in word or a text editor and then copy it over. I just don't trust the pesky internet to actually hold onto my thoughts longer than I do...
