If you see a post here, then I clicked Publish at the time it says on the post. I was really here writing just before that. It’s as real-time as you get. If I’m not here, there will be no posts. I did test future posting once when I scheduled a “VOTE !” post for 7am on whenever the last election was. That was as much a test as anything else. But I read a post earlier from someone who I know for a fact is not in front of their machine.
Future posts … I can’t decide if they are a bad thing or not.
- They make a blog look more consistently active than it may be
- If you have ads it can drive regular traffic
but for a personal blog it seems to be a deception to me. It’s like someone wanting to talk to me later and leaving me a tape of their words – but they want me to comment, they want a ‘conversation’ and that’s a con. But does it matter ? Yes, no, I don’t know but seeing posts when I know they are not there is a con to me. It’s wrong on a personal blog. It’s putting an IMpersonal in there.
