Is it possible to find a little piece of Heaven on earth with technology? Yeah, well I think so too.
But I’m in heaven anyway,
Given that I am a great writer of true and humorous stories, and given that I have the memory of a Florida gnat, I’ll be taking my pieces of heaven where I can get them.
Thanks to a little contest I recently had with my good writer friend Dawn Weber, I have discovered the scheduled post feature of the blog I use. I put my writings in their program. I tell it on what date, in what year and at what time + or – some calculated hours, and it does the rest.
I can now write about Christmas in February, put it into the scheduler on my blog, tell it what time and date I want it posted and voila’ or some other French word – it gets posted on time.
No more will I be in shame for posting pieces about Ground Hog’s Day on July 7th, which actually isn’t a holiday at all and has nothing to do with furry critters. No one wants fur around when the temperatures are hovering just below “it’s too damn hot for man and beast”.
My stories about the holidays will actually make it to my blog during the proper holidays as they were intended. Christmas won’t appear on October 31.
My son won’t be blowing up his pants with firecrackers during the Thanksgiving dinner. Well, he might actually do that for fun, but the story about the 4th of July will appear on the 4th of July.
Back to school will once again be in August and not March.
Leprechauns will be dancing with me in March when we will be expected to get good and drunk. And the drunkenness won’t be a cause of posting the New Year’s story on Leprechaun Day.
I can write at my muse’s schedule, and at some very odd times. I can then take these stories and put them into this miracle of technology and then not think about it anymore. WOW! WHOOPEE! Add some other excited words here! One less thing I have to be responsible for.
