ANGRYImage by Akbar Simonse (busy and tired) via Flickr

I have a question for those of you who follow this blog.
I have been working on the last post about Gen. Cadwalader for ever. Every time I would think I had corrected the problem and would publish it the text would not be in the right place. I check the preview and it is fine but then BAM!!! it moves when published. I won't even go into how many times I tried to get it to the "read more" stage.
Here is my question:
When you see on your site that I have published a post do you get another notification every time I edit that same post and hit publish again. If you do I am sorry because you probably got 20 notifications for that one post alone.
So let me know please.
Thanks for your help.

Hey Lori

Usually only the first time a post is published will the alert go out to blog aggregators, blog readers and email. This doesn't happen for every little edit and reposting (or I'd be in trouble too!)

I often get frustrated with Blogger in that it isn't tryly WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get"). Here's what I do: I start out working in the HTML tab and enter my text. Then I switch to the Compose tab and do my formatting. I then hit Preview to get a better picture of how the post might look then I hit Publish.

I do not think that I get more than one notification about your posts. I always edit my posts after publishing, so I really hope people don't get several notifications. So I think you are okay, though I totally understand your frustration.

Thanks so much. Whew. That is a relief.
I do check the preview but the text looks like it should be normal there and then when I post it the


I do know how to use html elements and still this wasn't working. I have also done the "read more" in my other posts yet couldn't get it to work this time hence the loooong post.

I have only received one post. Thanks for coming by and posting. BTW I love your using signatures. I love anything that shows parts if the personalities. Have you looked at reading signatures and personalites?
