Sometimes, I wonder

I am a well-organised blogger. I work hard at it, I enjoy my main hobby, and I love the community.

But recently, I have started to wonder if WordPress is actually worth our custom and our dedication.

Too many glitches. Too much rubbish about the Block Editor and business customers. Too many comments gone to Spam, or found in Spam.

There are days when I just think about bowing out, saying farewell, and finding something else to occupy my time. And with every glitch and annoyance, that feeling becomes stronger, believe me.

Today is one of ‘those’ days.

How hard can it be for WordPress to just run our blogs easily? If they spent less time pandering to business customers and phone users, I am certain that we would have less problems as bloggers.

As I approach my tenth year of blogging, I am growing weary of paying for a Premium service that they cannot be bothered to provide, just because I am a private, ‘hobby’ blogger. I feel close to breaking point, I really do. After a happy week, WordPress has pissed me off completely this Sunday.

Anyone else as fed up as I am?

Keyboard annoyance

I have recently started to use the new keyboard I got for Christmas. It is identical to the old one that stopped being ‘recognised’ by my PC, for some reason.

However, it has developed an aversion to the letter ‘W’. Every word I type that includes that letter appears with the ‘W’ missing. Then I have to go back over everything I have typed, and insert the ‘W’ with great care.

This is very annoying, and it has also made me realise just how many words and names include a ‘W’.

It is also one of the reasons why my serial episode did not appear yesterday, as I got too frustrated to continue typing. Naturally, it is past the time when I could return it. I could raise a fault complaint with Amazon, but then I would have to send it back, and wait for a replacement or repair. I could just order another new one, but I don’t want to spend £30 on that at the moment.

In the current crisis, it is not a big deal. So please bear with me while I summon up the enthusiasm to struggle with that annoying ‘W’!
