Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.

My 1000th post
Well it seems approprate that for my 1000th published post I am elaborating on my 999th post. LOL This post is being written using RocketPost as the designer sent me a fix that got the program working on my system. Life is cool.
So far so good and at the moment I have to say I really think I like this program...let me use it for a few days and I will let you know my final decision on it. At the moment it looks like it will satisfy the following requirements:
- It allows me to access both the "word processing" environment and the HTML coding. Though I'm wondering how much coding I would actually have to do using this tool. Most of the HTML I use is easily available via icons on the top bar. This program even does two forms of list - numbered and bullet - without going into the HTML. Way cool. Wonder if there is a way to set-up special icons for some of my weird coding like my picture placement string that currently is saved as an ActiveWords string.
- Categories are sorted in alphabetical order, something that WB Editor doesn't do. I like this especially since I added so many new categories in preparation for loisscheidt.com moving to blogging software.
- The speller looks very good..which is pretty important to me. Not only is it trainable but it can use the web to find spellings for words it doesn't already know by checking them out at Dictonary.com.
- Oh and I really like that I can set a variety of Properties from the entry screen including the post title, subtitle, categories...yes more than one is possible, tags, permalinks, as well as date and time for the post can all be set easily.
- Likewise since the program downloads all of your posts and saves them locally you can set links to previous posts by simply using the programs search tool. Very very cool.
- I should add that when uploading the visual cues are in the bottom bar...not a floating "always on top" iconography thingy. This is much better as I can upload and go on with my work without being interrupted by something floating in my vision.
Oh well I will play with it more and keep you posted. It is a pricey software product but since I do qualify as a serious blogger it might make sense if I do really like it after a longer test drive and if I can save the pennies to pay for it. LOL
Now on the 1000th post issue. Kinda cool for a blog I never thought would last through the first month. I remember thinking how amazing it was when I rolled over my first 100 posts, never even considered that I would make it to 1000 let alone keep going beyond that number. LOL
Well I should note there is a mismatch, of course, between the permalink post numbers and the available post count. In truth I have deleted a considerable number of mostly duplicate posts...like 36. This comes from errors I received in my blogging client, whichever one I was using at the time, that made it look like the post had not been uploaded properly when in fact everything was fine. So of course I resubmitted the post, sometimes repeatedly, and then had to remove the duplicates. LOL So while this will be permalink 1036 it is actually the 1000th available post.
