This is one of those very common mistakes that I encounter - does it ever happen to you?

Here's the scenario - you ae working feverishly late into the night, trying to get that next post out so you could honestly check off that certification activity. You are finally finished and you press that “update” button.

But when you go to view your page…. Nothing I may nothing has happened. You go back and forth a few times. When you suddenly realize that your browser is showing you what it saw 2, 5, 10, 20.......times ago.

Depending on your settings and sometimes just plain fate – your browser is not visiting your site to upload your changes. It is showing you the page that it has stored in its cache. Browsers do this to speedup what is being presented to the viewer.

Something like..."Why go back and visit the family when I have a perfectly good memory in my head."

So, if you are not seeing the changes that you are typing your fingers to the bone to complete that Certification activity – just try reloading your browser.

All the best of success to you, looking forward to your comments.

I had to remind myself again the other day - when a page I was working on wasn't showing any changes that I was making. Hope you are having a great day.
