Predating test post

This is a testing post to discover if Blogger can be set to publish a post I've created and predated. It is now Tuesday 3/18/08 around 4:30 pm and I am going to set the date stamp for Wednesday 3/19/08 Time 00:01. Let's see if this will post immediately, as I believe it will, or if in fact it will post 1 second after midnight tonight as some say it will.

I may need to stock up on some travel supplies and head out for a vacation after all this!

Well, I was told to use 00:01 for the time, but Blogger wouldn't allow it saying it was an 'Illegal time stamp format'. So that blows that one out of the water.

As you can see, the post says Wednesday March 19, 2008 Posted by me at 12:01 am. Well, it's still Tuesday afternoon.

I stand by what I've said in the past, there is not way to predate and auto publish with Blogger. Everything shows up immediately when you click on 'Publish' and then places it in order by date and then time.

Oh well, I'm fine with it, I've never known anything different! LOL Thanks to everyone offering help but it's no worries!

this is the way I was taught to make a sticky post. I was taught that pre-dating it will post it now and keep it posted UNTIL the date that you used.

Interesting. Sounds like blogger either has a bug or needs to clear up some confusion!
