Sorry for having published a draft

I've just unpublished it.

Yikes. You know what's a good metaphor for a draft? Someone's undressed self who in a less than fully awake state makes uncertain steps towards the toilet. That's a first draft of that person's publicly presentable self.

And publishing a draft? It's a bit like being photographed in this state. I mean, we all pass through that state every morning. Nothing to be ashamed of, then. And yet.

I think a lot of RSS aggregators never delete a published post, even if it then disappears from the up-to-date RSS stream of the original site. Bastards. Someone should spread their naked morning photos all over the internet and see how they like it.

Anyway, sorry, and the finished thing (10 times shorter without all the written-then-thrown-away bits) is coming up soon.

It didn't look that bad, so don't be so hard on yourself. Please make sure to publish the finished thing as a *new* post (with a new URL and a new ID), otherwise RSS readers will not notify subscribers thinking it's just an edit to the old one.

Don't worry about it. I normally read your posts start to finish, but that was so long and "unpolished", I was wondering if something was wrong.

You've probably heard the expression about how no one would eat sausage if they knew how it was made… we just got a peek into the sausage making process. If anything, it shows how much work & thought goes into your posts…

I actually find it fascinating to see the creative process in action. I know it can be embarrassing but it also gives the finished work a sense of being accomplished through hard work. I did read the draft start to finish, repeated sections and all. Can't wait for the finished thing and also can't wait to see your animated film.

You did a good job, you convinced InoReader at least that it didn't exist. Fooled one RSS reader. I'm glad you got it finished too.

#5 Yossi Kreinin on 09.14.14 at 10:37 pm

"Fooled"? I think of it more along the lines of "them RSS readers did their job of updating their databases to my up to date feed, albeit with a considerable delay in many cases".

I think the admin of this site is in fact working
hard in support of his site, since here every information is quality based information.

You could definitely see your skills within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who aren't afraid to say how they believe. All the time go after your heart. "Until you walk a mile in another man's moccasins you can't imagine the smell." by Robert Byrne.

I believe everything posted was actually very reasonable. However,
what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title?
I ain't suggesting your information isn't good, but suppose you added something to possibly grab folk's
attention? I mean Sorry for having published a draft is kinda vanilla.

You could look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people interested about everything've
got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a
little bit more interesting.

Everything published made a bunch of sense. But, think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?
I ain't suggesting your information is not good., but what
if you added a post title that grabbed a person's attention?
I mean Sorry for having published a draft is kinda boring.
You might glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post headlines to get
viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
