I follow well over two hundred people. I read every post and comment on many of them. There are times when I’m really busy and I fall several days behind but fortunately I usually can catch up in a few weeks at worst.
So I look at my Reader often over the course of the day. If I have 5-10 minutes I may try and catch up on a post. I believe that’s what you should try and do if you’re following someone. Now I’m not trying to tell you to do the same. There is no right nor wrong way to follow someone–it’s just the way I do it. It works for me.
However here’s the rub. I’m missing some people’s posts. They are not appearing in my reader. Or at least that’s the perception. But long ago I discovered something about my own posts–they weren’t always showing in my reader either! I couldn’t figure it out. They were showing on my blog but not in my reader. I follow myself just to ensure my posts are showing properly and I have no issues with them, so why weren’t they showing in my reader?? Here’s the answer.
When you start a post, the day and time is recorded. Now many of us will start a post and perhaps take several days or longer to finish it. This isn’t an issue, as we don’t have deadlines or other considerations with most of our writing. So we take our time and when it’s finished we hit “Post”. The draft disappears and turns up in our feed. We look and it’s all good. After all it shows in our feed.
However I don’t think most of us follow ourselves. So we may not notice that our posts don’t appear to enter our reader.
The truth is that our posts always would enter our stream but they won’t appear when we hit publish necessarily. Instead they will enter our reader at the time and date where we started them. Thus if you start a post on February 1st, but don’t finish it until February 10th and then hit “Publish” it will show up in everyone’s streams back at February 1st. For me that could be 60 or more posts earlier. And once I’ve read all the posts I follow, I don’t go back days later to see if any new posts have turned up.
The secret then is to change the date written before you publish. I usually use my phone to make posts. The last thing I do before publishing is to go into post settings. Once there I go to the publish section. It tells you when you published the post (or rather when you started the post and the date of record for it). Simply adjust this to the current day and time before publishing and it shows up in your stream where you want it. Now no one who follows you will miss your post as it will show up as the most recent post in their streams.
So the point of this post–adjust your date and time before hitting “publish!” And your followers will never have to hunt for your posts!
For those of you following my incredibly high orgasm totals, I am now at 288 days since my last orgasm. My Queen and I were playing a couple of days ago and she told me she wanted me to cum on her ass and then lick it off. But she wanted me to wait until she told me. So here I was dangling on the edge waiting while she asked how long since I had cum. I’m telling her it’s over 9 months and she changes her mind and tells me I may have to wait till my birthday! Still, she wanted me to be as close to cumming as possible. So more teasing of me happened before we stopped but no orgasm for me. We did try the BestVibe toy again. Review to come as soon as we have come to a conclusion about it.
