Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

Can you tell me?

In the course of blogging, learning the ropes, trying to get a handle on Twitter, I have discovered that I have a lot of questions about random things.

Occasionally, I'm going to pose a question to you. Something random but bloggy / social networky / techy in nature most likely. (what? those are all real words, I swear)

I'll post up answers in a few days - cause, maybe you don't know the same things I don't know...you know?

This week, I ask you:

Is there anyway to know the URL link of a post BEFORE it goes live?

If it makes a difference, I use Blogger. I often schedule posts ahead of time and when I need (or want) to share that post with someone, I wait until it is live and then click to it to get the link. Is there anyway to know what the link will be before it's actually posted?

Thanks guys!


  1. Well, I have this trick. As far as I've observed, it can't be used if you have another post with same title, or a blog post with very long titles.

    It's usually like this


    replace all spaces with a dash, remove all punctuations, remove the word 'a' and 'the'.

    BUT, every url of blog posts have this word/character limit. I don't know the limit myself. as for the same post title thing, i think if both posts are posted on the same month, the second post would have a number before .html, if they posted on different months, i THINK no numbers.

    Observe more links and you'll understand more!

  2. I have no idea... I've wondered the same thing myself as I schedule my posts WAY in advance sometimes.


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
