This post only affects both the readers that use a Feed Reader to read my blog. But I hold both of them dear, so I would like to explain.
Ignore the first post, read the second post.
Sorry for the duplicate post of But What if I Fail?. I use Windows Live Writer to write all my posts offline, and then I upload them when I am finished scheduling the post to publish the next morning.
It was late, and instead of clicking Save Draft, I hit Publish. I wasn’t finished with the post, so I quickly used the WordPress Admin interface to edit the timestamp of the post for 6:00 am PST on 10/12/07. Interestingly enough, my normally slow feed reader, was a little too fast and caught the post.
The entry was posted, but when I scheduled it, it removed the the entry dated 10/11.
Now there are two entries for But What if I Fail? in the feed, but only one entry on my blog. If you are interested, this will give you a little insight into my writing process, as the posts are a little bit different. I was in the process of editing for readability, and noticed the quotes I used did not seem in the appropriate position. The second post is the ‘final’ post.
For those of you that don’t use a Feed Reader, I posted screen shots.
Unfinished first post
Finished, Scheduled second post
I have screen shots because I subscribe to my own feed. How else am I supposed to catch errors such as this one. Sorry for the confusion, and please read the second post. I think it is better.
