It feels I am the only one experiencing technical difficulties. I do not want to complain in every post but the blogging experience nowadays leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

I once believed, still will, that modern technology would give the layman the power to compute without ever thinking of the myriad algorithms in programs used. Picking up information in the Net like picking fruits in trees could be a reality if Β the rosy promises of connectivity work seamlessly. At the moment though, it’s far from satisfactory.

We are given free services, which we take advantage to the fullest. In some way, we should be much grateful for them.

However, that’s what commercialism is all about: get your audience attention in any way possible. Companies would not prosper if they stay inactive, waiting for customers to come. They need the come-on to be noticed.

I am a patient person, who is being taught to be impatient. I just thought that it is more logical to let a working system remain as it is. Updates and improvements should wait when things bog down or when the system looks old enough for repairs.

Please listen to the users. If they ask for new additions, you can unveil your innovations. If they are satisfied with the old one, you should be grateful they do not complain. If you mess up with their online experience, sadly many of them will look elsewhere and leave.

This is but my two-cents worth of opinion. I am still satisfied where I am. πŸ™‚

  1. Just spoke to someone also having technical difficulties on wordpress, it’s not just you belsbror! I recently saw the movie Transcendence, where (it’s said in the beginning, not spoiling the movie) that they killed the internet, trying to save the world. I sometimes wish something like that would happen, for in person social reasons, but it also has done so much, and allowed me to be in creative online community, so at the same time, I’d had to see it go. Silly paradox, I know lol

    1. You are right about connectivity being helpful to us. That’s what I like about the Internet. πŸ™‚
      As to its demise, I don’t think it will ever happen, unless no one is left standing. That means it is the THE END.

  2. You could always send up your own satellite into orbit?
    Then, lay your own millions of miles of fiber optic cables along the surface of the worlds great oceans and seas. Remember to protect them cables from bitey bitey fish though!
    Then, you would be able to provide your own internet service and connection. Maybe even plug yourself right in? Pick an eye. I’d choose the one you like the least, then, proceed to remove that eye as safely as possible. Remember to wash your hands before AND after the proceedure. Then, install an ethernet connection directly into your optic nerve. Connect up your fiber optics straight into your own optic and hey presto! Plugged in…easy as that.
    Would do you say belsbrother?

    1. I was thinking along the same lines before. πŸ™‚
      I am simple person with simple wants. When I started blogging on WP, everything is a breeze. With the improvements, some of the easiest tasks are becoming difficult to accomplish. Okay, I should swim with the flow. I am learning everyday. It’s just too fast for me. 😦
      Your comment could pass as a science fiction story. Great imagination. The imagery is fascinating. πŸ˜€

  3. I agree 100%, all the chances are making me sick. It changes more than its needed. Its a pain in the butt, but like you I am still satisfied and wont be looking for a new home for awhile.

    1. You see whenever I write a post about this, in minutes all is back to normal. I wonder why? πŸ˜€
      I am very satisfied with WordPress because it’s the easiest platform to use, just like an ordinary word processor with the ability to publish at once. With this simple trick, blogging is a breeze.
      Like you I am stumped when improvements mix things up. It’s not fair to contented users who do no complain of the old system.
      Thank you for sharing your opinion about this. πŸ™‚

    1. Their motivations are laudable. But since not everyone blogging is an expert, any improvements should be gradually introduced so as not to upset users’ routines.

  4. I’m with you! i get so frustrated because I feel i am the only person left who doesn’t understand computer’s and or the language… i did manage to write a whole book..lord knows I just knew enough to type it up and hit save and get it in a file…I am still on XP(whatever that means) and we know its over…I am told the new one is less user friendly…i feel lost already!

  5. “I am a patient person, who is being taught to be impatient.” I love this sentence. Slightly off topic, but it reminds me of a thought I had the other day about how annoyed I get when I am not getting my “instant access!” It’s like being fed the most delectable food on a daily basis and then every once in awhile, you’re served cat food. I feel like a spoiled brat over the feelings I get when things don’t work proper! Deep breaths! πŸ˜‰

    1. I know the feeling. πŸ™‚
      I have a broadband connection so I am at the mercy of different factors that spoil smooth surfing. Perhaps, if I have instant access, I could stay online a lot longer.

  6. I have to keep my anger in check, there are a lot of glitches in wordpress. I am amazed that I still don’t have everyone I follow in my Reader. It annoys me to have to check my emails to know someone’s new blog came out!

    1. I share your problems, at least as similar to many others I know. 😦
      I simply endure the repetitions of clicking like several times, not knowing if it registered at all. Sometimes my comments in blogs could not be posted by some technical glitch I could not understand.
      But I am still satisfied at WP even with the problems. I hope they will lessen our headaches one of these days.
