THIS IS MY FOURTH TRY TODAY

I've now written three blog posts this morning with nothing to show for it.  I wrote one at the office only to have it melt away when I hit "publish post".  I wrote a second...different topic....hit "publish post" and it too melted before my eyes. 

I dropped the effort.

Later I came home to try from this computer and had a terrific post going about God being the Holy Houdini.  I could hardly believe it, but as I was wrapping it up a window popped up to tell me windows would be shutting down and restarting...without my permission.

Sooooo....this post says nothing.  NOTHING!  I merely want to see if it will make it as a survivor when I hit "you-know-what".

Do you need any further reasons to get a Mac?

You talked about "powerlessness" on 16 April, maybe God is sending you a message to talk about "nothinglessness! Just a though!!!

Hello,

I suggest writing your blog posts in Word first and saving the file every so often or turn on autosave. That way if the computer turns off or something. You will it at least have some if not all of what you wrote.

I LOVE this post!!! I am behind on my blog because of the same thing! I finally gave it a rest, forgot my original post and started over a few days later...it flowed like melted butter onto the page and out into blog world! Guess God sometimes hits our 'reset' buttons on creativity until we get HIS idea across! Love love love you!!!!

I always write my posts in Word first then cut and paste. I learned the hard way with those disappearing posts. :)
