Jane Eyre is not my recent post, it’s my first ever post in this blog!

Everything in my life has gone a bit pear-shaped, awry these days. Started the weekend with my son’s illness, tagging a comment to the wrong blogger (I am sorry Geosi) and then this. Except this isn’t my fault, it’s wordpress, but I don’t know why wordpress behaves this way.

It is close to my blog anniversary (hold that well wishes people, wait for my BIG announcements!) and I decided to check back my first blog post. Review of Jane Eyre was the first and found two spelling errors in the post. I fixed the mistake, click “Update” and it became my latest post and feeds into google reader subscription!

How can a blog post be the latest if it is dated 30 November 2008??!!! All I did was update it. Here’s the proof:

I am known to go back to my old posts and make a few tweaks to get some more information that I missed the first time, in. It usually stays where it is suppose to be when udpate them, in order of the sequence when I first published them.

WordPress must be working on some sort of a window or lead time to introduce old posts to new audience. I really like to know what lead time they are operating on. Do you know? Anyone have other funny encounters with wordpress or blogger?

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
