Apparently the good folks at Blogger thought it would be a good idea to make a quick and easy way to publish your post without having to go into that huge hassle of having to actually click on the “publish post” button and thought, “Oh, we’ll just make it so you can publish by pushing Ctrl + S” (wow, long sentence). Not a bad idea.
Unless you are a college student with Microsoft Word. Those of us who are used to writing papers and who have ever experienced the searing loss of data in the wee hours of the morning know that Ctrl + S is the savior to everything typed. It’s a quick and easy way to save your work in Word. And since I am so proud of my work and don’t want to lose any precious thought that I have penned for an assignment, I have gotten into the habit of pressing the Ctrl + S keys after literally every sentence I type. It’s to the point that I don’t even think about it. It’s just second nature. It’s served me well, because I can’t tell you the last time I lost any of my work for school because of a power failure or computer freeze. I’m a saving madman.
However, this habit gets me in trouble when I am blogging, because I am constantly pressing Ctrl + S as I blog out of habit, which publishes a post on blogger. As I have attempted to write this post, I have pressed Ctrl + S inadvertently at least twice. Maybe thrice. I’m not even joking. It’s a lil’ frustrating sometimes. Many times I’ll compose my blog post in Word to avoid this problem, but other times I don’t feel like messing with it. Like now.
What this just accomplished, I don’t know. Maybe others out there share my frustration.
