I noticed that I outsmarted myself on this blog. There were three blog posts that I took a long time in writing and posting and using a neat little feature, I published them on Thursday but with their original dates and times. Therefore, they posted in the right order... with my "Checking In" post remaining at the top as if I hadn't posted the other three yet.
So, if you're like me and just look at the top post on a blog to determine if anything new is there, please scroll down to "Inbetween" which is three posts before "Checking In."
Enjoy! New posts with a surprise coming soon.
