Yes, yesterday’s post did run twice. I’m not in a canned post mode, but I am tending to write a day ahead of time and using the scheduling feature. However, that only works if one gets the date right. My wordpress is set to something like greenwich time instead of my local time (something I could fix but am too lazy to) so it can get confusing. Still, I should have noticed that I had two posts scheduled for the same day. September 29th and September 29th are still both pretty clearly the same, no matter if it was September 28th that both would go. I didn’t notice though, and both posts went live at the same time.
What good is that?
So, what was I going to do? One had already been liked on Facebook and the other on Twitter. Leave both up? That wasn’t going to work. I wasn’t going to write an extra post to cover the day the second one was supposed to cover. No, I just decided to unpublish one and reschedule despite the fact that at least one person had already seen it. Why not? I figured not that many people had seen it yet. I caught the error pretty quickly.
Anyway, I’m lazy. So there.
