testing M2B

test post from via Mail-To-Blogger

Saturday, June 04, 2005

my inquiry to the dudes at Blogger...

I am following the instructions on this page:
I leave "Publish" unchecked so it is required I publish the entry upon receipt on next log in.
I verify the new entry is under Posting->Edit Posts.
I do not see an option to publish my latest entry to my blog.
I've verified the entry does not show up:
Am I misunderstanding this use case?

yet another attempt (YAA)

i think it's kinda silly that if you know someone's Mail-To-Blogger email address, that you can post to their blog!   why not have a list of emails that a permitted to post?
In any case, I thought the last post would be subject to review and published when I next log in - apparently it just got published!
something seems buggy or there's somethnig I don't understand!
ho hum...

a shout out from my new email interface to this blog!

i took the time to browse the new admin (aka "dashboard") interface of my blogger...they've done a lot of work since opening up this blog in 2002!   go Google! (btw, there BETA search history feature really really ROCKS!)
anyhoo..this is just a test...who knows if it really works.
the new URL of this blogspot is now:
ta ha!'s been a loooooooooooooooooooooong time since posting to this blog - this is like the hidden blog the hidden me - the closet chin! i just read my last blog from before i made my trip to thailand (and before my last burn) and whoa...I can hardly recognize myself! :-o

i'm sooooooooooooo freakin bored right now - wondering what to do in seemingly the middle of nowhere (i'm quite far removed from central bangkok) ... yes...i suppose reading that last post made me realize how hyperactive i am - it's a total breakthrough to just be in this apt for the last 3 days - yes, i haven't gone anywhere! i live in this house happy as i can be - doing what i can to make myself happy...i share this new home with my partner and she's a really wonderful woman and the mother of my future child! yes - you heard me right, i haven't quite announced this on my "official" journal...i consider my LiveJournal to be my professional journal - whatever that means - what's the point of having two journals? what's the point of not sharing as freely as one would like?

ok..i don't have any more to write for now - i want a freakin good chair god dammit! (excuse my french!)
