I'm having a problem with the geekzone blog, I am working on a new post and as I write it I have put the publishing date a few days from now, this will give me time to check the writing/formating is correct.
But as soon as I clicked 'create new blog entry' I lost the ability to access that post for editing.

Is there a way I can access this post and preview it before the publishing date?

The "Create new blog entry" link is just a blank space... Once you type in you click the "Submit" button. If you select and existing blog post you instead get an "Update" button.

Alternatively use our Metaweblog API. Windows Live Writer will retrieve your blog CSS and show you how the blog post will appear.
