    This is a test of the Emergency Blogging System. This is only a test.

    If there were an actual emergency in the barefooted blogging area, you would not be reading this message.

    This concludes this test of the Emergency Blogging System.


    Everything working ok for you, barefoot?

    No, but since I'm apparently the only one with the problem I doubt it's the site. Thanks for asking!

    I apologize for wasting your time. "Preview" has decided to evade me, so drastic measures were called for. Rather than an emergency, my area appears to be experiencing a prolonged state of irritation. Blogging soley on a smartphone is ... interesting, doing it without proofreading might be deadly. (At least to readers.)

    Wasting our time? No No No, this is a great post! Kinda like the famous boy scout admonition, Be Prepared.

    Well, I was certainly prepared for nothing but the title to show up!

    Oh jeez.

    I thought I was going off line again!

    Oh, we're all alittle off-line now and then. No computer required!

    If this had been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed to turn your radio dials to the Blogger Defense Play-Station in your area and listen for reports from the Department of Blog-land Sincerity ... This has been a test, but they are marking on a curve, so don't sweat it.


    You are listening to an emergency alert broadcast from the Department of Blog-Land Sincerity Network. This is only a test, but we are sincerely impressed by your ability to follow directions. Since there is no actual emergency in the listening blogosphere, we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

    Aaaand .... Cue the Beacon!
