I will try out this idea here. What if I post the things I do searches on or come upon and find interesting or useful as I go about my online business? I'm sure many blogs have been done this way. I want to see how hard it is to do. If it is easy enough, it might be a better way for me to do my bookmarking. I suppose that is what Deli-ci-os ? is for. My computer went down recently. After a long repair time, it has been restored to me but missing all my emails, addressbook contacts, and bookmarks. My thought is that putting my bookmarks online would help me somehow. Probably the stuff would get just as buried here. How can one ever really keep up with this stuff? Of course it is thoughts like this that keep me from going through with such ideas. I'll try this as an experiment for now. I'm not even going to link to this blog anywhere, so for now it is a dead end. As I look at this, with the first link below, it seems a foolish idea. We'll see...And now it seems like far more trouble than it's worth.
The object of this test was
a) to illustrate what blog builder does in my browser Safari
b) to illustrate the various 'target' settings for links, ie. 'self, top, parent, blank.
It's been so long since I made this test I can't remember the results of (a). I was using the link button on this blogbuilder window and everytime I clicked it to insert the link, it copied everything that had gone before (all codes and text) to the end of the entry. By the time I'd gotten to the last link example the additions had grown exponentially to a rather long list of code inserts. I wrote down somewhere the number of times each cycle appeared, and then deleted all the excess stuff. So I don't know if the problem can be seen from the source code. This is how I've been working around this problem. I insert with the buttons and then rewrite and delete to the best of my ability. So far I've been lucky.
As for the results of the various targets, I can't remember what they all mean now. Self means the link opens in a new window, blank means it opens in the same window. Top and parent, I don't remember. They don't apply here.
And - this test may not be valid because I did it in another blog, as a draft, couldn't figure out how to move it to a test blog, so dragged as a text clipping to my desktop and then dragged into the new blogs text edit box.
PS - In this case 'blank target' doesn't work because I haven't changed the default link settings for the blog (I assume)
