Thanks to [Maili via] crankyreader, I discovered a whole new world of Blogger Hacks that I can install on my blog. Oh goody, one more way to suck time out of my day. But really, I’m eager to try some of these. One of them, a new comment alert, is something that I noticed on Maili’s blog yesterday. When there are new comments since the last time you visited her blog, the post comments say “(#of) new bunnies thumping”. It’s cute and I commented on it but didn’t think to ask how she did it. And now the not-so-secret is mine. Bwahahahaha. Okay, clearly I need to get out more.
But the reason I bring this up is because I also discovered Blogger’s new Microsoft Word plug-in. I downloaded it and am typing this post from my Word program. I can access all posts on all the blogs I admin, save this as a draft, or publish it from Word. I’m hoping it works…. here we go!
Update: Thanks to Jay for helping me out with the funky characters. Her suggestion did work. And I tried to implement the Blogger hack for comments (on my test blog first) and failed miserably. Soemthing isn’t working right and I’ve exhausted my patience for the moment. Clearly, Maili is brilliant and I might have to ask for her secret 😉
