Kicking Off Spring with Great Scents: National Fragrance Day is 3/21! Check Out LA-Story.com’s Picks!

 

Last night (3/20), before I shut off my computer, this post was completely done and looked FABULOUS. I saved it and then set it to publish since I wanted to get ahead of the curve for National Fragrance Day. I double and triple-checked my post. All looked good! I saw the live version of the post and I sent a link to the PR person who provided me with images.
When I woke up in the AM, the post was no longer there. What happened to it? I have no idea! I was shocked to find that the entire post vanished except for the photos I had uploaded to my server.  I knew I had to get this post rewritten quickly and post it for the time/date that was on the original post.  Right before I had started to type the re-write of this piece, I remembered that I  had failed to check my RSS feed because I have a website that holds my content and will distribute it to various social platforms.  I checked that site and found the entire article including the photos were there.   Here is the post, less than 24 hours late, tweaked a bit for typing errors and it includes my apologies to the brands involved!
