Testing, Testing

We're taking a day or two off for Jan to rest. We have no idea what that has to do with us, but she says after 5 days of staring at the monitor and having a dozen tabs and programs open at a time from mid-morning to early morning ... well, never mind the rest. It was kind of incoherent.

The short version is we have to say good-night, see you soon while she looks for her memory. She is sure she left it somewhere safe but she has forgotten where. We would put Buddy on its trail but his nose is out of joint. Something about Jan taking Sam for a walk two days in a row before him.

So why is this post titled "Testing?" Because we're going to set this to auto post at 6 am tomorrow, Thursday. We're hoping the third time this new blogger in draft will actually work.

:Well, we now know auto post in Blogger in Draft dashboard does NOT work! This did not auto post this am either. And the blog takes longer for us to load. Does it take longer for you also? After all this, we might end up with our original template back again.

We notice google is taking forever to transfer data with this new template and the new dashboard -- which we got from Blogger (owned by Gooogle). Whatever is going on, we don't like it. So don't be surprised if the new blog suddenly looks surprisingly like the old one.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.

  1. We love your new look and had no difficulties with it loading.......bummer though if the auto posting doesn't work. We will be missing you and looking forward to your return in a few days. xxxxxxxxx

  2. The schedule function in Blogger Draft is working for me -- but yesterday and today I've noticed issues with uploading photos from the draft version of the Dashboard!

  3. Well, the site loaded fine for me. But it is always much slower for me to load my own stuff then it is for everyone else. We don't use the Blogger in Draft because it never works right - we just use the regular dashboard. I have noticed that blogger sends out scheduled posts to my reader for some blogs, but I don't have that happen with mine usually. I wonder if it is because those were done in Blogger in Draft.

  4. i do not know why these mommehs think they are entitled to such breaks. do they not know that we kittehs are THE most important things in their lives? they should be running to satisfy our every whim, not wandering off searching for memories.

  5. Nope, no difficulties with loading.

    Sorry you've had so many difficulties with the new format. The auto load problems are a bummer. I dipped my toe into Blogger Draft a while back and pulled it right out again.

    Enjoy the rest, Jan!

  6. We'll be here when you get back. Hope your mom finds her mind. And we love the look of your page!

  7. The site looks great!!! Don't work yourself too hard!

  8. The new design looks GREAT! It loaded for us without problems...

    Sorry we can't be of any help with the Blogger in Draft thingy, since we do not use it (we just load up our posts from the "regular" dashboard).

    We hope Jan gets some good rest. We'll be waiting here for all of you when you get back! :)

  9. what you've done to the place :)

    I've seen comments about the auto post not working before over the past year....must be a buggy thing.

  10. Well, I think the whole blog looks really nice!

  11. Me again....I gave you an award (I think you might have received it before). Please stop by my blog to pick it up :)

  12. Hi Cotton, Merci, Cyndi, Percy, Cameron, Buddy, Rusty & Sam & Jan!

    Awww you at Jan's Funny Farm are the smartest animals to understand all that Jan is doing to your blog!

    Me and Charlie-pup are most impressed!


    Whatever it is that Jan has done - it looks utterly fab!!! yay to Jan!

    Take care

  13. Looks good and loaded fine for us.. Hugs GJ xx

  14. It looks fine to us, but whatever you do just don't get lost in cyberspace, okay? Its hard to get our friends back when they get lost out there and we don't want to lose you

  15. One thing about the auto post. Mom says if she works on a post and "saves" it and then tries to schedule it to post at a certain time, it doesn't work right. But if she doesn't save it but just puts in the autopost info, then it works. No idea why.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  16. Hmmmm....

    Now I KNOW I ain't letting my mom put her paws on my blog....

    I will tell woo the furst thing I have her do when we start working on our post each day is put the next day and 12:00AM in -

    That way when we are working on it and inadvertently publish it, it really didn't! I've learned the hard way!

    I khan't say I've had any issues with pre-skhheduling posts -

    Good lukhk with all the things on the chore list!


  17. Auto post does not work for me either. It makes Mom say some words under her breath. I think they are words I am not supposed to hear.

    Your site opened just fine for me tonight.

    Thank you for thinking of my Grandpa!

  18. I did not have problem to see your blog. It loaded normally!
    Be nice with Jan and let her rest as much as she wants... or needs!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. That just stinks. I've not played with draft in a while - I need my auto posts!

  20. It loaded well for us too # and looks fab!

  21. We are having problems as well We can no longer put a header picture up!! grrr.....Love A+A

  22. we love your new template and have no issues loading it. if Jan finds her memory somewhere have her tell our the mom where it was - maybe our the mom's memory is there too


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
