...why are you doing this to me??
i realised that if i write a post and save it for later publishing, then it will be published on the date that it was written. which means, far beneath the ones that i've been posting after saving it, in betweens lots of old posts, so that no one will see it. not even me (i don't know exactly how many times i pushed the 'refresh' button yesterday, but it was quite a lot, until i realised the post was there - far down on the page i was watching). now there's two of them, disappearing ino the great blog mess.
that's just plain stupid.
