What on earth has wordpress done to the way we compose our posts… I am sorry but I hate change! I really, really do not like change on my wordpress page! Why do they do this, why do they change formats …I did not ask them to do this, honestly I did not!
So what do they think they are playing at? Is this a cunning plan to unhinge my tenuous grip on sanity. Are they trying to prize the last vestiges of me being in command away from me so they can toss me into the void and watch me sink into the sloth of despair.
NO, NO I am exaggerating, I loved the way that the page for composing posts was set out I felt at home I felt safe! I knew what I was doing , I was in charge and in command .
Now it resembles what I have to cope with on my mobile ….WHY WHY?? It is not fair. I know exactly what will happen it will take me time but I will begrudgingly get used to this format and then just when I feel safe again the powers that be at wordpress will, without a by your leave or a tip of the hat in my direction, change the format again. I WANT CLASSIC BACK!
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

I like this post and can relate.. I have linked Windows Live Writer to my blog and compose my posts there. I find it easier and faster.
Hi Suzanne I may well have to check out Windows live writer thanks for the tip. 🙂 xx
WordPress does weird things to one’s commenting as well! Lots of mysterious stuff they do. Lovely write!
I know, it is like entering a magic zone at times but they know we will endeavour to navigate it!! Glad you liked the post!
I don’t even realise anymore when they change things. Just go with the flow… Or at least I try 🙂
Wish I was that relaxed about it!
Ugh. Something to look forward to next time I write a post. Why indeed. 😦 GRRRR!
Good point; innovation can be carried too far, too easily…. This is exactly WHAT WordPress needs to hear….
I hate change sir I really do!!
It has taken me a while to get used to the new format for new posts as well. I switch back to the old way on the WP Administration link and then click on Posts. I noticed it is easier to post videos from You Tube though. 🙂
Well I always use note pad to post YouTube videos but if it is easier that will be good. Trouble with me is I hate change. xxxx
Me too. I always say I am technologically impaired. So if something does not seem user friendly I resist. At first, I really did not like the new post format because I thought it discouraged people from checking out my whole blog site. I think all of us humans hate change. xo
You nailed this right on the head! The last time I was away for a few weeks, I came back and felt like I was in a foreign land.
I know Deborah I hate it when they do that!!
I agree Willow… these changes are driving me crazy here at WordPress too. I get tired of learning new formats because of these changes. Grrrr… why do they always have to tinker with things that are not broken? Great post!
I really don’t know, I was happy and confident as I was. Maybe they get bored and play with us!!
Now that wouldn’t surprise me… over the years with a lot of these websites, especially Yahoo back in the late 90s and early 2000s, I’ve often felt like a mouse in a maze being toyed with. Great insight!
Yes these tech monkeys must enjoy stressing us mere motals!!
Indeed, Willow 😀
I think that “new” editor is ugly and it’s hard to find stuff. I still use the old editor that you can get to thru the wp-admin page. No idea how long that will be around, tho… There’s a way to write your post in Evernote and use IFTTT to post it; if push comes to shove, I’ll do that, or I’ll bite the bullet, lease space somewhere, and install WordPress.org, which I’m pretty sure they haven’t messed with. It’d be a pain to move everything off WordPress.com, but worth it if it means not having to mess with so-called technical improvement…
Yes John I have so called improvements!! I had stubbornly clung to the classic editing but sadly I no longer have that option open to me! I am afraid I find it easier to keep everything in one place but might have a word with my lads ( both programmers to see if they have any advice) DOH! I don’t like change!
