Post2Blog Part One

Time to try something new. I told you about HTTrack, with which I was able to save an entire year of blogging on my harddrive (and on CD) . I’ve been looking for something with the opposite effect: a means by which I could prepare posts offline. Have you ever posted about something, then wish you could have had a little more time to investigate your topic further or embellish your post? Most bloggers don’t like to change something once it’s already been posted. There was a program called W.Bloggar which I tried.. LiveJournal has it’s own Semagic program, but recently I decided to try Bytescout Post2Blog.

This is DejaVu for me: I wrote a similar post last night, but it wouldn’t upload to blogger. Later that same night, I tried a couple of test posts, and they worked fine!?!?! So this Post2Blog thing is going to be trial and error, a learn as I go process. Welcome along! Each Post2Blog post will be named Part One, Part Two, etc. and since Post2Blog Ice Rocket Tags: is multi-platform, I’m going to attempt to post the series on my LiveJournal blog as well as on Blogger.

P2B has it’s own spell-checker, which I like better than Blogger’s, ’cos Blogger’s will screw up the formatting of my post if I use it.I’m a good speller, but an overanxious typists, who wants to get the words on the screen faster than his fingers can peck, which often results in things like "sumemr" instead of "summer" --- P2B is also suppose to be able to insert technorati and icerocket tags as well as Blogger categories.

The biggest benefit I see using P2B is when creating a series of posts I can check back and forth between them without having to be online. Number two is being able to have a working file that I don’t need to connect to Blogger to in order to expand on. So, let’s give it a go!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
