Yesterday I thought I’d write about Consequences by Penelope Lively. Then I had a good idea (not!) – I'd write it as an expandable post, as I’ve seen this feature on other blogs. The idea is that you display a small amount of the post at the beginning and then users who want to read the rest of the post can click on a link like "Read More" to see the full text. I looked in Blogger Help and there is an article explaining how to do this.
Well, I can’t get it to work and I’ve wasted most of yesterday afternoon, and a big chunk out of today trying to get it to work and it just won’t. I’m getting quite frustrated with Blogger. It puts spaces in my posts where I don’t want them or moves paragraphs together when I want them apart. I write the post in Word first, but inserting photos in the post is a nightmare – it’s so difficult to make them go where I want them and then the spacing has gone wild again.
So the Consequence is that there is no post on Consequences today. Maybe another day.
