a quickie. Really.

I know I've said before that I was going to post a quickie and then it turned into a long-y.  But this one really will be quick.

Can somebody that uses RSS fill me in on how it works?  There are typos in each of my last two posts, which drives me crazy.  (the perfectionist strikes again).  If I fix them, does it pop them back up to the top of your RSS feed?  Does that bother you?

And secondly.  I was complaining about how there weren't enough hours in the day to do all the reading have to do (which is true), and DH kindly pointed out how much time I've spent in the last 3-4 days writing posts and reading my friends' blogs.  dangit.  I hate it when he's right.  I don't know why it takes me so long to write a blog post-- usually a couple of hours for each one.  and I also have one in the wings that hasn't been posted yet (which adds up to 6-7 hours i spent writing blog posts in the last few days).  So I'm signing off for a week or so.  Last spring I made it six weeks into the semester before things got this busy.

Later gators.


  1. Yes, I believe that if you make changes to the blog and then repost that it will put it in the RSS feed again. But it doesn't bother me.

    And who ever said that blogging was quick and easy.....isn't a blogger.

    HAHAHA my word verification word is "flair". I am just going to make that my word for the day.

  2. Ha, I didn't even know I had word verification! Yes, today would be a good day for flair. Thanks for the info.

  3. I was hoping someone else would chime in, I don't know how those thingies work, but I do know that if I go back to fix something in an old post it shows the original post day but it comes up anew. Very confusing for me, so it grates on every single one of my OCD nerves. And yes, it takes me hours to get mine done as well.

    I must disagree with your Beloved though... staying current on other people's blogs is SO important to our well balanced mental health!

  4. sorry, Julie! I edited both of them so they probably popped right back up there. I will try not to do it in the future, but I am really bad about editing my posts after their posted. As you probably know.

    Yes, staying up with friends' blogs is important. I will probably do some-- unless we go out of internet range, I never manage to completely wean myself off!

  5. after THEY ARE posted, that would be THEY'RE. i do know the difference even if I'm a spacehead.
