I find blogging platforms enigmatic.  I'm going to shamelessly plug my guest post on the A-Z Challenge blog here.  (They picked 10 people from those who completed their survey after the last challenge finished to do a guest post.)

I was excited.  I've never done a guest post before.   But then I started thinking about the logistics of it.  How would I get my content on their blog.  Of course they gave helpful advice.  Something about a direct Tweet was mentioned.  Hmm.  I do have a Twitter account but it's rather dormant.  No problem.  There were alternatives.  E-mail an HTML version of the post.

Great I thought.  I know that Blogger lets you toggle between composing and HTML.  Prepare the post.  Tottle to the HTML version, copy it and e-mail to the A-Z team!  Easy.  Right?


For some reason, despite the preview having paragraphs, when it was posted the paragraphs disappeared.  Thank goodness I've included some photos which break the text up otherwise it would just be one long diatrible.  I know I tend to waffle but I do like to punctuate and present my posts.

Why did it happen?  No idea.  It's an enigma to me.


  1. LOL I was confused about how to get my guest post over as well. I don't do twitter either. Congrats on winning the spot!

  2. It's pretty cool that you were chosen for a guest spot!! Way to go!! You are so good at these writing challenges!

  3. Blogger HTML isn't exactly standard HTML. Still, if you did it in Blogger, you would think you could take the HTML it generated, send it to another Blogger user, and they could paste it in and have it look the same. Very strange... anyway, good guest post!
