Firstly, I will start saying, that I am not seeking an answer from anyone here regarding, the will I stay, or will I go? question. Only I can make this decision and a decision I can make for myself, thank you.
As you know, I have not been happy for some time with WordPress. The biggest upset that I have not felt any differently about since, was when they introduced their new editor for writing posts on our dashboard.
I am still using the one they plan to scrap, so I have not had to go back to the one they say they will keep going, when my current one is gone. Which by the way they haven’t said forever. There still is the question after the deadline, whether they will keep that one, or not. So there is still that question whether I would end up leaving anyway.
So, with that and the other stuff that WordPress will not do to make life easier for a blogger, which doesn’t matter if you pay for your blog, or not, it would still affect me, I am planning on sitting back and observing. Especially with some go slow times I have been having here I have noticed, which at first I blamed my internet for. But I don’t think it was always my internet, because if I went away and visited somewhere else, it was fine. But when I came back to WordPress, it wasn’t. So are they restricting things when it comes to the bloggers using a free blog? You will never know with WordPress. But WordPress are playing with things that as you say, ‘don’t fix what isn’t broken’
Now although I will be sitting back and observing, I will still be posting as planned. So not completely sitting back. But I will be observing my blog.
Between now and end of this year, posts will go ahead as planned, with exception when I have some blogging break time. But by next year, I will have made the decision whether I continue writing here, or writing elsewhere.
I plan to go back to Blogger and play about there soon. This time, setting up a new blog (and title), just in case I do.
I asked a couple of long standing readers and friends a while ago, their view of title I had chosen, should I write a new blog elsewhere. Now these two long standing readers and friends go way back, to my first ever blog I written. So thank you, Sarah and Ruth for your opinions.
Between now and end of the year, I won’t be saying anything more about this. It will be in the New Year, before I next do.
And should I go, then before I do, I would of course post one, or two more posts, before the blog ends. One being the announcement of new blog. If this does happen.
If nothing happens. Either way, I will update accordingly in the New Year.
Thank you for following and thank you for reading. Until next post.
POST UPDATE! on 19th August 2020
I more likely will be going since creating this post yesterday.
