My last post was truly an experiment gone wrong.. Yesterday, my broadband decided to play up. I had just started my blog day – commenting and started working on a post when suddenly – no Internet connection!
Now, that never happens here.. So I assumed that there must be something wrong with the router, the laptop. Repaired the connection, tried restarting, tried switching off the router, even disconnecting it and connecting it again – but no luck at all! Even tried connecting with my husband’s laptop – to confirm that it was not a problem with mine.. But nothing.. It kept saying that it is connected – but I kept getting errors while connecting..
Finally gave up and decided to log on from my phone. Now, the phone is great – but I can’t comment on a lot of Blogger posts from my phone and I was halfway through a post too – and had never accessed the WP admin from the phone.. That had been on my to-do list – but somehow had never gotten down to trying it out yet. So decided to experiment with trying to do a post from the phone.
Now, this was one aspect that I find Blogger easier to use.. There aren’t as many options – so with blogger editing and posting using the cell phone was quite easy. With Wordpres, I was very wary.. And as I was playing around with stuff, i decided to preview my post. Now this post, I had not done any editing, spellcheck or any sorts of checks – I had just completed it and wanted to see how it looked.. As I hit preview, and just as I did that, my phone died on me – as I plugged it in to be charged, daughter decided that I had spent enough time on the phone – she wanted my exculsive attention.. I got busy with my non-blog life and forgot all about my post.
I logged in later in the night- again on my mobile – blog surfed and commented but forgot all about my post. This morning when I logged into my email – I noticed a bunch of comments for a post which I thought I had not published! Thats when it dawned on me that I had actually hit ‘Publish’ instead of ‘Preview’ 😦
And this morning, broadband has started working again- miraculously! I do wonder if the universe was conspiring against me ….
