Having an Editing blog - Idea by Eiyiyi

I tend to make lots of mistakes while typing , apart from the missing letters which my laptop causes. I am so impulsive that I just type and post before I forget to put down the idea which popped up in my brain. 
Only after I post and view it published full page in the blog do I realize the mistakes I made and of course I have to correct. 
Well I am kind of - let's say different - to be polite :). To this day I can only add after you give me a paper and a writing tool. I have to write it down and then I am fast computing .
So there was a lot of editing going on.  When I mentioned this in another post one of the sweet MB member eiyiyi commented and advised and I quote - "I was doing my editing on the fly as well. Then, I created another blog just for editing. I create my post, add my pictures do all my fiddling, publish, look at it again and fix it then "select all", copy and paste it to a new post in my regular blog. The key to it is to make sure when you set up the editing blog you click the box that says no one can see it but you!. "
What a gem this is. Of course I followed. If any of you read my blog you should thank her too for saving you all from reading either my atrocious mistakes in the future or making you read all my re- edits :).
I am still a crazy impulsive person who still may some time type directly in the blog but hopefully it will be just one or two posts.

I've done this, too. It's also a great way to check out new blog background designs before you go live with them :)

Okay I am feeling blog challenged today. I tried this and when I go into the post on my test blog I select all then copy - when I paste it on my regular blog none of the pictures or links show up - what am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help
