blogger made some pretty visible changes recently.
One of the undesirable changes is that if you edit a past post, it springs to the most recent spot ! It had happened with a previous post - an October post gatecrashed into December (fall in winter!!!), and now again. my troll is hiding behind my maple leaf !
Note that nothing else changes - the date of posting, the url, etc. everything remains unchanged except the recency. The blog/reading list in other's blogs continue to show the troll pic, but if they visit my blog or click on Home, then they will see the maple leaf first, causing some confusion.
Well, I can see the logic - once a post is published, it is in public domain and readers have a right to know when and what changes are made to the content.
What I wish, though, was that we had the Option of having the post spring up as latest or simply informing readers that changes have been made .... Circumstances permitting, I often go back to earlier posts to include related links, etc. for future readers. Guess I won't be doing that any more !
I tried to bring the troll back in line by editing the post. BUT it wouldn't return :-((( Hence this new trick ...
Once I publish this message, Then maybe I can coax the troll to fall in line ;-P
Let me give a try .... please don't be confused if you see a switcheroo - desirable this time.
Of course, it can also be desirable if one wants to revive an old, forgotten post !!! Always 2 sides to everything ☺
BTW, blogger has a range of emojis to choose from - or so they would have us believe. But only the smiling face emoji works ☺
keep ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺ !
Hope you are all enjoying your holiday tatting and partying ☺
