The lights are on
Hello! I'm new to the GameInformer community, and last night I finished my first blog, which I put a lot of work into. I hit the Publish button, yet I cannot find the blog on my Profile OR with the rest of the blogs the community made. Yet on the right side of my Profile, where it tells you how many comments you've made, it says that I've made a blog post. My question is, was my blog actually published, and if so where can you find it? I thank you in advance for your response!
Oh, and by "right side of my Profile", I meant the User Stats in case that helps.
What time did you set the blog to publish? If you set it to publish in the future, it won't be posted until that time.
Edit: Listen to Supersnake.
^She's reacting to my posts!
Another way is to go to your advanced blog page.
First go to your profile and click "Post to your Blog".
Then towards the bottom of the next page click "Advanced Editor".
Next click the "Manage" tab and then the "Posts" button.
From there you can see a list of your published and unpublished blogs. If it's not listed there, you'll probably need to post it again.

You guys have been very helpful so far, I really appreciate it. I just have one final question. Under "Manage Posts", I manged to find the Blog I created. It's saved as a Draft, and hasn't been posted. I went under Edit mode and published it. However, it still hasn't published and I set it to do so immediately. Furthermore, it now says I have 0 blog posts instead of 1 under my User Stats. Any further help would be greatly appreciated!
Does the blog still show on the Manage Posts page though?
Did you copy and paste your blog from Microsoft Word? Another issue is this site has a problem with Microsoft Word. Copying and pasting straight from Word will mess things up sometimes.
Any links or pictures in the blog post? Sometimes the site will be weird on certain links or pictures.
It does still show on the Manage Posts page, and it wasn't copied and pasted from Word. However, I used to have an account on IGN (technically I still do), but I left after realizing how pretentious the community was. The blog in question is copied and pasted from there. Perhaps that is the source of the error?
Edit: I've decided that is the issue, as I recently completed another blog that I typed entirely on Game Informer. It is now published and displayed on my Profile. You were both very helpful, thank you again for your help! I wouldn't have been able to figure it out otherwise.
Awesome! Happy blogging.
