Testing, Testing... 1 2 3

Does everyone hear me? Can you hear me in the back?

Test... test...

Good. I think we're all able to hear me talk now.

Does everyone here have a blog? Raise your hand. High, so I can see it.

Hmm, ok. Yes, interesting. Most of you have blogs. Good! Then what I have to say will be very helpful! I know, because I was once like you. When I first started writing my blog, someone suggested something to me and it has changed my life. Changed. My. Life. People, you need to get yourselves a test blog.

Nothing fancy! Nothing over-the-top. Just a plain old blogger free blog. It will be your salvation!

On your test blog, you can post the pictures you want in your sidebars. Without posting them on your main blog. You can also play around with your template without fear of ruining the good thing you've got going.

You're going to wonder why you didn't think of this before, and I'll tell you why: You do not have the brain of a Bruce. I am here to act as liaison. The Bruce brain is a powerful operation, but also humble.

I never thought to tell you about this genius idea because, frankly, I thought I was the only one who didn't know. And that was almost two years ago! How little I actually knew! For all of us with not-Bruce brains are wandering in The Dark, and I see that now. I have gone into The Light, and The Light is good! It is Enlightening Light, folks! And I have come back into The Dark to lead you with me.

So come with me now! Step into The Light! Get thee a test blog! Flourish!

I've been thinking recently about doing exactly that. Mostly because Hello can be kind of a bitch sometimes and uploads pictures without letting them show up in my "Edit Posts" tab, so I can't immediately hide them until I'm ready to continue editing the posts into which they will be placed. Also, I have been considering starting a second blog under a different name just for the sake of having some anonymnity, thus allowing me to write about work and other things I wouldn't want my parents/grandparents reading. ;)

The Bruce Brain is a wonderous thing. It makes total sense. And I totally need to get one because saving to my blog and then putting it in my sidebar and then deleting it from my main blog is such a hassle. I could just have two tabs open, it would save so much time and effort.

Oh Glory Be!

Yeah. When I first complained about not being able to test things out on my template without potentially messing things up (I think this was fall of '04), the Bruce-brain said, "Oh, get a test-blog." All casual-like. As if it was the most intuitive thing in the world.

I'm only just now realizing that not everyone thinks of these things. I'm pretty sure it would have taken me aproximately a century to come up with it on my own. So I thought I'd share :).
