Scribfire!

Once again — I started at one place on the web — and before I knew it I had spent the day making new discoveries! :) Yesterday I signed up for twitter — and linked my phone — haven’t made proper updates — will get there, I suppose. But that led to —

Foxmarks — a fantistic way of keeping bookmarks available online — and synced with my favorite browser — Firefox — which I have configured with a kitty theme — makes me smile each time I use it! :) which led to —

Scribfire — a way of posting to blog from within my Firefox browser — how cool is this ;) Will have to see if the posts post immediately (like Word Doc), or in 4 hours (like Google Doc).

Update: posted immediately!!! Now if I can figure out how to add categories and tags… Or will just have to edit from website like I do with the others :) Oops — just looked around — I can add categories and tags directly from within Scribfire prior to publishing!!! This is great!!!!! Well, it *would* be great if I could remember to add categories and tags *before* I hit the publish button ;)

p.s. there was a question about posting to Twitter from Scribfire — that involves configuring Ping.fm — which allows you to publish to Twitter using various sources — including your blog.

If one finagles the “settings” for date/time — and puts time and date together on the date line — depending on the theme, it will print out!  I spent too much time figuring this out, and then trying out all the different themes to see if I could find the *one* for me — never found *it* but I changed the colours on this standard heading so it suits me a bit more.  Will have to experiment more later.  Blogging takes way too much time if you take it too seriously, I’m thinking.  “Just do it!” would be a better plan!

I’ve found out how to change text colour –  but not how to change the font.  what am I missing??  maybe I can’t. Okay – well, here goes… I have never liked writing… when I was assigned “journaling” in high school — I reported the facts, just the facts.  My grandfather’s journals contained things like the weather, buying a new furnace, my birth – but no feelings.  He died ages ago — I found the journal with my birthday — and all it said was “Kitten’s baby was born today” (Kitten was my mother’s nickname – she hated it – but it stuck, unfortunately.)  I wish he had shared more — I can barely remember him…

How do I add the time to the posting header? it shows the date but not the time… hmmm….
