Confusion

It's Tuesday.  The girls from Australia have posted Words For Wednesday because it's Wednesday there.  I get Words for Wednesday on Tuesday.  One of the girls posts Using Wednesdays Words on Friday on Thursday.  My Thursday that is.  Now in February it's my turn to post Words For  Wednesday.  I pre schedule all my posts at 30 minutes past midnight.  That makes Words For Wednesday show up on my blog  on Wednesday and, hopefully, on the Australian girls blogs on Wednesday which is my Tuesday, a day earlier than I have it posted for.  I hope you're as confused as I am.

  1. Yup.
    But at least for this month the words are coming from your side of the world. March, April and May are a different matter.

    1. I actually like getting them early but I feel bad that I haven't figured out how to get the words to you on time while not being too early for everyone else.

  2. If you schedule for the words to appear on your Wednesday, we won't see them until our Thursday.
    This is the main reason I post my entries on Fridays. I like a day or two to get a story worked out.

    1. You mean, I don't manage to get to you on Wednesday by posting just 30 minutes after our midnight ...like, just barely Wednesday o'clock here? Well rats!!!! Here I thought I had it all figured out.

    2. No, you'd have to post them on your Tuesday, schedule them for about 8pm Tuesday night your time so when Wednesday morning rolls around, you'll get them posted and we'll already have them for a few hours. or just leave the system as it is, so you get them Wednesday and we get them Thursday. For me it's fine.

    3. Maybe I don't see the posts early enough because a lot of the time I don't turn on my computer until everything is done here that needs to be done.

    2. Welcome back. It's so nice to see all my old friends again. And don't apologize. I'm the one who disappeared with no warning.

  4. Wouldn't your Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. still be Wednesday (although later in the day) in Australia, as you said? If you published later on Wednesday it would be early Thursday in Australia. I think. I remember learning about the International Date Line in school but they never taught us about blogland time differences - ha ha

    1. Australia is several hours ahead of us so when they post Words for Wednesday its still Tuesday here. I really thought I had it figured out so they would get the post on the right day but apparently I\ve still managed to goof it up.

    2. Don't be so sure - as long as you post at thirty minutes into your Wednesday, it will still be Wednesday in Oz :)

  5. Haha, it CAN get confusing with all these time zones! I notice that with the IWSG posts. I start seeing them on Tuesday sometimes, even though the date is the first Wednesday of the month. It always throws me off!
