Question Posting a draft to my blog

I started a blog today and wrote a draft and saved it. I can't see how to post the saved draft to my blog. Can anyone help a blog novice?
Thanks, Tim

If you open the draft, you should be able to select the button which says 'post entry' or some such wording. Which blog site are you using?

Hi Cameron, I'm using the generic blog on this forum site. I have opened the draft but if I push the 'post to your blog' button it just sends me to a new post screen. I'm pretty computer literate, but I feel really dumb, I can't find a way to post the draft. If I hit the 'post now' button in any view of the draft, edit, preview or save changes, a dialoge box opens that tells me the message is too short; and I know that's not the case.
Any other ideas? Is there maybe a setting I could have that blocks this option, or is there something in the options that I need to check to enable the option?
Thanks, Tim

Hmmm. I'm stumped too. Maybe there's a glitch in the software. Perhaps a message to one of the moderators might be of help.

Hi Cameron, I took your advice and posed the question to the mods.
Thanks again, Tim

Tim.. I sometimes have this issue with making new posts (not on threads already opened). What I do is "copy" my post... open a new post... paste.. then it can post. CAn you try this with your blog? Copy it, open a new "blog", paste, then try it again without saving it?

It seems like it has something to do with the version of Safari I'm running... doesn't do it on my new Mac nor with Firefox.
Marc

I did a little digging and figured it out - I think..

To post your draft entry, go to your blog and edit the draft. You will find a little pencil icon in the lower right hand corner that allows you to edit.
Make your changes and then scroll down to the additional options box.
Find the box with a drop down menu that allows you to change the publishing status - change it to 'publish now' and then scroll and hit save.
