Publishing from Beyond the Internets

Hey I just found this cool feature on Blogger: Write an entry, and you can tell Blogger when to publish it automatically even if you're not there. Here's how to do it.

1. Instead of going to blogger.com when you want to publish an entry, go to http://draft.blogger.com. Sign in.

2. Create a new post just like you always do, but when you're finished writing and tagging it, click on the "post options" link that is just above the "publish post" link.

3. Change the date and time from the current date and time to when you want to publish it. Now click on the "publish post" link.

4. Your post is now scheduled, which means that it won't appear until the date and time that you specified. To check and make sure that it worked, you can go to the "edit posts" link on the top of the page and it will say "scheduled" on the line for that post.

What does this mean? It means that even though I'm going to Aspiro this week for another shift or two, that you should still keep checking Swirly Patterns and, especially, Storisbord.

For those days one just feels like blogging all day but at the same time don't want to appear to have no life.
