    Do You Preview Posts?

    Do you preview your posts before publishing? Personally I think it's good form to preview posts, as you can see how everything will be laid out for the visitor and fix errors.

  2. I usually never preview my posts. Only because I usually write them in Word, and I will use spell check just to make sure I didn't do any stupid miss spelling or grammar.

    I guess I would only preview a post if I wanted to see how it looked with the template.

    No not really. I really don't see much point in doing it.

    Yeah me too. That is what I was going for. I don't think I ever use the preview button on anything. haha. Even on like an email or something important.

    If I preview something then I end up second guessing my self.

    You can see how the post looks with your template, and make sure images aren't too big, paragraphs look nice and aren't too long, elements you want centered are centered, etc. That's what I like about the preview feature.

    I like to see how it looks like on the website itself, and the preview tool isn't providing it. So I usually publish it, and directly edit it, to make sentences shorter or longer (I hate it when there are 4 sentences, and the fifth sentence is just 1 word).

    So I'm not really using it, but I'm doing it my way.

    Many, many times.

    Usually for the reason of just formatting so my site readers get the experience I plan for them. After all, your creating the content for the user so why not display correctly for them aswell :P

  8. Always. I preview it always. And read it over again.
    I preview it mostly because I want to see how the images will work with the post, sometimes they make the post more ugly instead of cool, so I have to edit the size or something.

    I can't imagine not previewing my posts!
