This is the mysterious Post #45. It’s been sitting at the top of my blog Admin panel blowing raspberries at me for some time. It’s time something was done about it!
Sometimes, I start some amazingly witty blog post, don’t finish it, and save it as a draft. When I come back to it, it seems somehow less amazingly witty. So I just leave it there to fester. But I really can’t stand the unfinished posts just sitting up there. So I’m overwriting said unwittiness with this post, and sending Post #45 out there into the world to fend for itself.
You know what’s going to bug me though? The post list is going to be all out of order now. Instead of going 60, 61, 62, 63, 64…, my post list will read 60, 61, 62, 62, 45, 64, 59! Fifty-nine! Yep, that’s the other of my malingering drafts. I’ll recycle it the day after tomorrow (or thereabouts) to get rid of it. I can’t recycle it for tomorrow, because 64 is already written, and timestamped for tomorrow. After 59, I’ll have a clean slate again, and numbering can progress as normal. I wish WordPress didn’t assign post numbers until actual publication, but since I’m not going to go developing a way around that, I guess I can’t complain about it.
Oh. I just did? Well, whatever.
In other bloggity-news, I finally realised my pinging problem was not going to solve itself, so I added BlogRolling to my auto-notify list. (The WP default is to notify ping-o-matic, which is supposed to notify everything else, but evidently it wasn’t). Fingers crossed in the hope this will actually work, and you won’t need to waste your time coming over here when I haven’t updated in a week 🙂
