I was responding to some frustrating formatting issues being experienced by community member, Mark Hendry of C21 Pro Realty Group in Blue Ridge GA.
He was trying to import a blog article he had drafted on a desktop application, Dreamweaver, and was having problems getting it to upload onto his ActiveRain blog publisher.
During the course of our phone conversation, I asked why he was crafting his articles on Dreamweaver, rather than using the ActiveRain publisher?
He responded that whenever his blog muse would inspire him, he iiked to just go into Dreamweaver, knock out a few sentences, then save it for a later time when he could finish it up.
I asked him, "Why don't you just us the ActiveRain blog publisher and save your articles to 'Draft' mode?"
There was a short pause on the phone.
"The 'Draft' mode? What's that?
I explained that he could easily accomplish the same thing using his ActiveRain blog publisher, and simply scroll down to the 'Draft' mode in the 'Visibility' box before saving.
This 'Draft' mode is a feature that I personally use all the time. Like Mark, my blogging muse strikes at the most inopportune moments, so many times I only have a few minutes to throw something up, and hit the 'Draft' button, saving it until I have more time to complete my post.
There was a line from the Tim Allen movie "Galaxy Quest"....
"It's the simple things in life you treasure!"
