A Cautionary Tale

I know, I know, it's not quite time yet for another wordy post from me.

So I'll keep it short instead.

Did you know that in Blogger, if you happen to hit Enter on your keyboard when you are typing in the Title box, the post you are working on will publish  THAT VERY MOMENT??

Yes. Yes, it will.

If you've seen a weirdly titled post show up in your feed today, just before this one, you'll know how I discovered that little nugget of knowledge.

Thanks for the warning.

Joanne Noragon sent a comment which didn't publish for some reason (all heck is breaking loose here, it appears!). I had mistakenly published two posts, one with the weird title and one that was blank.

Joanne commented on the blank post:
"Blankety, blankety, blank, blank, blank!"

Thanks for the laugh, Joanne :)

I had no idea! Forewarned is forearmed :)

Love Joanne's comment. And some of the words which leap to my mind after mishaps like that should be blanked out too.

Blogger does some pretty weird things if you ask me.

I'll make it a point to remember this as my typing skills are blankety-blank!

oh my goodness! Thanks for letting me learn from your mistake :)

My mother used to say "blankety blank blank" in place of swear words when us kids were around.

Now I wonder how many times I've done that?

That's funny. I love Joanne.
