Confessions of a Lazy Blogger
October 16, 2006
I realize it is not done to manipulate one’s posts. I know it is fogeyish to overconstruct one’s supposedly casual rants and raves. I dig that it’s all about the immediate.
But still. Sometimes I compose a post in another application, you know, like Word or a textpad or even an e-mail. And then, sometimes, when I’ve been sitting there too long and my fingers have grown icy…. it’s just too much to actually take whatever heartfelt thingamajig I’ve composed and copy it over into the clicks and boxes of WordPress. It’s not that this interface is particularly onerous either. I’m just particularly lazy. And then, that poor post, not feeling so urgent once it’s written, gets filed for the next (next, next) day.
So my confession to you, imaginary reader, is that I’m gonna backdate some posts to the time I actually wrote them. If the machinery allows me such deception. I haven’t actually tried it yet. Such a revelation of disorganization or inertia or fiddling with dates may prevent me from running for public office one day, but I hope you won’t hold it against me. Thanks.
