Anyone who hasn't done this (blogging), but is thinking about it, should be warned. It's harder than it looks. I had a long comment with link references all typed up this morning, ready to go. But, when I clicked on publish, the page went blank and I realized that blogger was down. Now I can't even remember what it was I had typed or what links I had referenced.
I'll have to consider creating off-line so that I can minimize the chances of that happening again in future.
