  2. I love WordPress. The angst might be out there, but I don’t feel it. Am I oblivious or just lucky? Naive or stupid? I don’t know. I just love WordPress and the blogging friends who inspire me and visit my posts, and leave affirmative comments. What’s not to love ❀️?

    1. I love the bloggers and I’d like to spend more time with them, but WordPress has made that impossible. I’m talking about WordPress not bloggers, obviously, WordPress is the platform, I love the bloggers, so I’ll agree with your what’s not to love about the bloggers but nothing else. Today alone I had to refollow 30 bloggers, again. I’m so glad you’ve been lucky, but most haven’t been unless they’re paying Premium prices.
      I would have said the same as you a few years ago but that was before they systemically destroyed mine and others blogs.
      We’ll have to agree to disagree, you can stay and love WordPress but unless they change, by bye. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m sure every platform has its glitches and I was (mostly) suffering in silence until they started putting ads in posts (ruining them) and saying if you pay we’ll give you back your posts, it’s like inserting malware and then asking for ransom.
      Hope you have a wonder-filled week. :

  4. I don’t like the new editor either. I went back to the old one. The only gripe I have about that one is that they have taken away the “justify text” feature. I could go off topic now and say I don’t have to justify anything, but I mean the kind of justify that makes the writing pretty on each side.

    Like

    1. Me too, but it didn’t fix any of the WordPress glitches…people click Like and it vanishes, they unfollow at least 30-40 bloggers I follow a day, over and over without knowledge or consent, they’ve stolen the Reblog from some and sharing from others and the list goes on and on.
      You’re right (or left but not in the center cause no justify), you don’t have to justify anything but it is nice to have the choice and it does make the writing pretty on each side.
      Hope you have a justifiably wonderful week. πŸ™‚

  5. I do like WordPress even if it does hate my guts. As you know (or not) I lost my reblog button and WordPress fixed my blog with a sledgehammer and there in the rubble was my reblog button — (yay!) but missing was everything I posted in May and early June. Then I discovered that when WordPress smashed my blog it split in two and the story goes on, but the gist of it is, WordPress hates me. πŸ™‚

  6. I have been on the other side of the fence and it is not greener there. I don’t pay WP premium anything. I am not affiliated with WP or any sponsors of it. I do like it and have not had problems of any lasting nature. I might be the only person in the world that likes Gutenburg editor too! Then again my “traffic” is so minimal, WP doesn’t have to work hard at my URL! That’s a theory anyway. Maybe the more you got going on, the harder it is for WP to cope! And you Donna, got a lot going on, Babe! Love your posts–even this one!

    1. I don’t pay the Premium, maybe I would if they weren’t so awful, but no, bad service doesn’t deserve rewards.

  7. WordPress keeps switching me to different editors. Thank God, they haven’t forced Gutenberg on me yet, but they have just switched me back to a version I was using ages ago so I have to remember how to use it all over again. It sort of feels like being put back a year in school because your work isn’t up to standard – possibly a punishment for not using Gutenberg. Or not upgrading and having to pay.

    1. No, we’ve got a while to Gutenberg, thank goodness, maybe by then they’ll realize the error of their ways and try something easier, I won’t hold my breath. πŸ˜‰

  9. Ditto. Driving me crazy. I pay for extra space because I blah, blah, blah – but finally got tired of the multitude of stupid ads WP makes money on cluttering up my blog, so now paying more to have nothing but blog…sort of like paying to have an unlisted phone number. Over the years WP platform has morphed so much it’s hard to recognize it – and hard to deal with it. IS WP trying to scoop up those fed up with FB? So much of the adjustments and changes now is aimed at big companies. Once authors were scolded by talking too much about their new book (“advertising it”) and having a click to pay button would have caused people to faint. Now? I have a list of blogs I follow as WP seems to keep dropping them from their WP blog followed list – but it’s getting to tedious to make work arounds constantly. And all the companies (looking for traffic and emails?)/fake blogs (with 57+ blog entries of the same exact quote – who is giving them that begin your blog quote? It’s everywhere) – their “following” is just ridiculous – junk clicks.
    A good part of the WP fun is gone and somedays, yeah, showing up to read/comment/write is less than entertaining.

      2. It’s a strange sensation when you see followers drop off and people not finding your posts and going to pages you know you’ve followed for years and years and every day it says you don’t follow. This all seems so easy to fix which sadly leads me to believe WordPress doesn’t want to fix the problems. As for the comments to spam, I know and 90% of the time there’s nothing in those comments to land them there. Sigh.

  14. Dear Donna… they hate me too! Though I’m glad to have your company in general, I’m sorry you accompany me in this misery.
    I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but I’ve experienced first hand, a company intentionally driving itself out of business (as a high level financial strategy) — with no concern or consideration for the employees or customers. I can’t help wondering if they are not doing exactly that…
    Nothing could possibly be as “accidentally” broken in so very many ways as them. They’re as messed up as the government here. (eye roll)

    We love you. Keep on keeping on. Hugs on the wing.
