November 4th….

I’m still not feeling great.  So this won’t be a long post, I thought I’d look at the prompt from National Health Bloggers Posting Month, and try to go from there.

Today’s Prompt: What happens after you press “publish”.  Write about your post-blog-writing process.  Do you immediately tweet a link?  Email it to everyone? Re-read it for spelling errors?

This is pretty easy for me.  I try to read over my post and look at a preview of it before I hit “publish” so I don’t need to review it for errors.  Sometimes, I don’t.  Sometimes, I’ve spilled so much of me that I can’t bear to read it again at that moment.  I need to just get it out, let me and my readers digest it together.  If you are a regular reader of mine, you know I’m not the best at catching grammatical errors any way…no matter how many times I read it over.

So, sometimes, I just hit publish and let it ride.  Do I immediately tweet it?  I used to, but I realized I never look at Twitter, so I felt kind of silly doing it.  I used to post it on Facebook.  Finally, I decided, that everyone I know knows I have a blog, if they want to read it, they can, if they don’t, that’s OK too.  There have been days when I wished that my family and friends didn’t know about my blog.  They don’t have a chronic illness, and I don’t want them to only think of me as someone with this or that disease.

So what do I do after I hit Publish?  Usually, I view it on my blog to see if it really published.  I often have to edit it, because I’ve forgotten to add tags.  (I do that a lot.)

Usually, after I publish my post, I try to go through my reader and look at what my friends have posted.

Then I just wait on comments.  : )
