Blog and Fall Break

 The Smith Family in June 2010 at Linville Falls

Right now, I am camping in the beautiful NC mountains again with my family so I am taking a much needed blog and Fall break.  The last time we visited here, it was in June 2010, so we are excited to spend some time this Fall season enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery.
I wrote this post a week prior to our camping trip and scheduled it to be published for today.

If you use Blogger for your blog, did you know you can schedule posts to be published on a certain date and time?  This can save some time.   If you didn't know this, all you do is click on "Post Options" at the bottom of your post box.

Then click on "Scheduled at" under "Post date and time". (This will be on the far right side of your screen and looks like this:) 

Post and

You can then specify the date and time of day you want any future posts to be published.  Since I will be away from a computer this weekend, I was able to schedule this post prior to our camping trip.

OK enough Blogging 101 from me, who is stilling learning new things every day about blogging.

I hope everyone is having a happy and blessed Fall!  I'll be back to visit the blogosphere soon!

I didn't know about that scheduled post thing. Thanks for sharing that info. Enjoy your weekend. I voted for you today.


Hi Jen!
Just got back home this evening and catching up on laundry, emails, and of course my blog :)
Sickness hit 2 of our family members while camping (my hubby and littlest one). I hope to post soon about our wild adventure! It was a great weekend, despite the sickness :)

Hi Lynda!
We had a great weekend and my "break" is over so I am catching up with everything, including my blog :)
Thanks for the votes! I will voting for you for today soon!

Hi Marie,
I hope the scheduled post option is helpful to you and saves you some time! Glad this info was helpful :) Thanks for the votes :)

Sorry to hear your family was sick:( I voted for you today

Hi Anna-Marie!
Yeah, it was no fun, but we got through it! It made for a memorable vacation to say the least :)
We are just so thankful that hubby's parents had their camper that we stayed in because he did not feel like setting up our 8 person tent as he was vomiting! (more details than you wanted, I'm sure..sorry!) Then the next day, our soon to be 3 year old was throwing up :( But, we made it home with no one else getting it :)
Thanks for the vote :)
