In my six and a half years of blogging, I’ve had a LOT of fun, I have met amazing people, and I’ve learned more than I thought I would.
And occasionally, I’ve experienced WP’s glitches. And by glitches, I mean these unexpected, and certainly unwanted changes that always happen overnight without the slightest notice.
I remember complaining because on my world map, the color of the visiting countries had switched from orange to pink. Apparently a big deal for the back then newbie that I was. Now, after fighting aside many other bloggers against the end of the ”Classic Editor”, I do realize that the change of colors was not even worth mentionning.
But why am I bringing this up tonight, you might wonder?
About ten days ago, after a couple of months of ”glitch-free” blogging, something happened.
I had been naive enough to think that WP’s Happy Engineers had forgotten me, and that I was blogging under the radar.
I was happy.
But as you’ll learn, if you haven’t already, WP NEVER forgets about you.
So, the last ten days or so, it seems like some passive aggressive WP (not so) Happy Engineer decided that I didn’t deserve to have a lovely quiet time in the Bloggosphere. So what they did is turn the ”Get an instant email notification when a new post is released” for all of the blogs I currently follow.
All 512 of them.
So you can imagine what my inbox looks like. Ughhhhh! Just so you know, at the moment, if I follow you and you are so much as thinking about a post, I get and email. I am in the process to deactivate the option, and to delete all the unwanted messages.
Thank God some of the bloggers I follow don’t post anymore (I take that back… It is a shame, because if I follow them, they were interesting). But the reason of this post is, if you’ve tried to get in touch with me in the past two weeks and I didn’t respond… It is not because I don’t care.
I’d blame it on WP, but according to current events, I’d rather blame Putin.
Not the Russians. Putin.
Then again, it might just be WP. But one way or the other, I’m trying to catch up, and I’ll get back to you soon if you’re in the flood of emails I’m trying to sort out.
Please, tell me I’m not the only one in that situation…
