I blog a little and as a newbie I was so excited by the "posting" or publishing of my ideas . To think somebody wanted to read my thoughts was kind of thrilling. I love to share so putting my thoughts out there was very gratifying. As a Realtor I feel it is part of my job to help first time home buyers learn the process. I loved that I was helping others be more prepared to buy or sell a home.
The thing is sometimes I would slave over writing the blog in AR format and include some pictures and spell check etc. Then the big moment of hitting "post"! Most of the time I was greeted with my blog post, oh JOY! However sometimes I would get the proverbial "Boink?!?" message stating "Proxy Error". This made me crazy, because the blog I had just spent so much time on was just gone, vanished into thin air. Oh the horror!! After having this happen about a half a dozen times, I got smart. I began to write my blogs in MS Word and then simply copy and paste into AR Blog format and insert my photos. So now when I get the dreaded "Proxy Error" message it does not send me into a panic induced heart attack! Because I know that I can simply copy and paste my work back into the AR format and try again later when the dreaded Proxy is finished wreaking havoc with the AR site.
When I logged on yesterday to enter a couple of pre-written blogs, I saw something new. It was a little orange line above my blog that read "Draft auto-saved at 10:18am". WOW! Now the AR IT Gods have always impressed me by their diligence to keep us happy and productive. But this was over the top! You send in a suggestion and they really listen! Better than listening they really act on your suggestions, if they are as good as this one. The AR IT gods are always working to make our experience on ActiveRain smarter, faster, better. Which is something I can totally relate to. They keep us humming along smoothly. Thank you AR IT Gods. We appreciate you and we all love what you do for us everyday!! Kudos to YOU!!
