Some strange things are happening on WordPress

Some strange things are happening on WordPress.

The first one I spotted was just before I finished my blog maintenance and decided to do some blog reading. I was looking for a particular blog I follow and just thought she had been quiet, but when I looked at my reading list more closely, I noticed she wasn’t there and so I had to re-follow and caught up with her posts, (which I did not miss many) letting her know.
How can you unfollow someone when you didn’t unfollow and they did nothing there end either?

The latest, I can’t seem to comment on one blog I follow. It’s the only blog I am so far aware of that I can’t seem to comment on, which has only happened as of today, because I was commenting yesterday ok. I see the comment has successfully posted, but when I come back to read later, it’s not there.
There is nothing to say it’s in moderation, waiting to be approved, or to say I have commented already, if I try and comment again.
I have heard of this issue before from other bloggers when reading about it a few months ago. But it’s a first for me experiencing it.
I sent the blogger a private message via her contact form. It says the message as gone, but with the weirdness of WordPress, can I really be sure? I also tried leaving a message in the last post I commented on, but again it’s not there. I thought of an attempt to contact blogger via what I thought was my post she commented on, but it wasn’t my post as I thought.

The only issue I have had, which I can’t remember which blog, was when I apologised for looking like I posted a comment twice.
This was because it did not look like it had gone. I got the blogger to remove the first comment and keep the second up, where I added a bit more, if the blogger did not mind doing so. Which this blogger did not mind.
I have had this issue on other blogs too, but luckily, I opened another window to look at the post in question first, to see if my comment was there, which it was, so it wouldn’t look like I was repeatedly posting.

What WordPress weirdness have you experienced?

Chit-chat catch up

So I have done everything I need to do that was needed with my blog and I am back to posting earlier than expected. So it did not take as long as expected.

I would like to thank all my readers for their support and hello to new followers that have joined, for the short time I was away.

Everything is still going fine with my electric and gas supplier. They use meter readings every time compared to the previous. So whenever I move home, I shall take them with me. (Unless I find them there already.)

My previous supplier who I left some months back, surprisingly sent me a cheque for credit I was in, as well as compensation. I was very surprised to see for a rip-off company and so I wasn’t expecting a penny. I would still not recommend them and I will avoid.

Me and my mum won’t be living together. I have now removed her off the council list. I won’t go into too much detail, otherwise it would make this post a protected post. But I am going my own way and mum can go hers, should she choose to take it. My mum’s nurse will advise and guide her should she choose to and if she does choose to, it means she can still move to Mansfield.

In the meantime, because of the situation and my health, which is now high blood pressure, (and I still have asthma issues,) I refuse to do those unexpected stop overs sleeping on the floor at night in a sleeping bag. Mum will have to use that 24 hour phone number she has, should she need it.

Work has been very supportive, as they always are, in these difficult recent times and I took their offer to have a week off work this week, so I could rest.

I will continue to live where I currently live, as I can’t afford to move in another private property, unless I am in a second job. But I shall hold out anyway, to see what happens with bids I make on any council properties.

I will walk away from arguments

As I have said in the past to my mum and now I am actually having to do it to my own mum, is that I won’t continue talking in a heated conservation. I will walk away.
Heated conversations don’t get you anywhere and don’t do anymore any good. I will and I have done, will walk away.

I have gone back to my old volunteer place, with not yet securing a cleaning job in the morning. They were happy to see me back. I do the same day and hours, each week as before.

My other volunteer role in my local area, I go bird watching this week. This is my second time with my local conservation group, since joining this year.

I decluttered. Yes. I managed to fill a carrier bag full of things, ready to donate to charity.

Blog update

I am still on a blogging break, but I would like to leave you with an update.

As you know from earlier posts, I have mentioned about protecting some of my blog posts with a password from now on.

Currently, I am still doing maintenance on my blog, which I am near to finishing.

I have just aired a new page on my blog that will mention how to get a password for my protected posts. I am ready to receive these requests, but due to my own personal health at the moment, there may be a delay getting back to you. But I will get back to you and let you know either way, whether you were allowed a password, or not.

Please see page: Protected Post’s for further details on this and read carefully. Thank you.

I hope to start blogging again from September.

Blog post re-share: We Did It! — Maybe? — This, That, and The Other

As you know, I had an issue with Tygpress.com, like many other WordPress bloggers.
I just discovered from Fandango’s blog that us bloggers may have just done it, as the website was found to be down. See blog link below for more details on this.

I have certainly checked myself to see if Tygpress.com was down and it is. Temporarily. I also discovered they had the decency to apologise, as I seen the following displayed there when I went to their website.

“Tygpress.com is temporarily out of service due to technical issues. will be back soon…
Tygpress.com was created with an intention to create a blog search site , but due to some techical issues, full contents of respective sites were being displayed instead of just excerpts as intended. We thank the complainants for bringing this issue to our notice and We are extremely sorry to the content owners.”

 

I just went to tygpress.com to see if Carol Anne’s (Therapy Bits) posts we’re still showing up. In her post she asked, “If you can check on tygpress for therapy bits and let me know, I’d appreciate it!” So I did. I typed “tygpress.com” in my browser and this is what came up: Wow! Tygpress.com […]

Last chance for your say in how you would like to read my blog

This is your last chance to have your say in how you would like to read my blog. Even if you have had your say before, then please have it here again. (No just clicking on the ‘like’ button.)

Do you want to carry on reading my blog on WordPress? Which if you do, you will accept that not all posts are going to be public, as most will be password protected.

I also get to mingle with the WordPress community, because I will still be here

Or would you follow me via a new blog link, which would be on Blogger and public?

This would mean that if I move blogs to a different platform, then I won’t be here on WordPress at all. Moving to blogger means you would be leaving comments using your Google account, as that is how I would set up my blog there, if I went this way.

Please leave your say here, or by email. It doesn’t matter how you follow me, your views are important.

I was hoping a lot more of my readers would have their say here in a past post, but only a few did, that I could count on one hand, so it brings me to this post.

This post will remain open for only a month and I will decide on from after this.

Blog post re-share: Feel Free to Use this Badge — This, That, and The Other

Well done for Fandango of “This, That, and The Other” for coming up with this.

Please let everyone know about this.

Go and visit Fandango’s blog for more details and to get this image below.

With all of the unauthorized harvesting of our posts that is going on at tygpress.com and seemingly not much that can be done to stop it, I created this badge that I will attach to all of my blog posts going forward.Please feel free to grab this image and post it on your blog. By […]

Having a break from blogging, while doing some blog maintenance.

I have started today going through my posts accordingly, to password protect some of my posts.
This is still work in progress and I thought as I am working on adding my copyright notice to every blog post now, that I may as well do altogether at the same time.

I can’t say how long this will take me, especially with other things going on in my life. But until I have sorted my blog accordingly, my posts will be delayed from being aired.

When I have done the above, I will create a new page regarding how you are to go about obtaining a password, as well as a new post to show I am back to blogging.

So until then and when I say I am ready, please do not request the password to these protected posts, because I will ignore and trash the email.

I do not write at https://tygpress.com so please do not read my blog posts there

Tygpress.com is not authorized to post content from this blog on it's site

Do not read my blog posts at https://tygpress.com

I don’t know them and they have never been given  permission to share my blog content in full, on their website.

They are not, allowed to post my blog content in full, or anyone else for that matter. You are breaking the law if you do.

Do not support https//:tygpress.com and if you want to see my written work, then only visit my blog directly https//:mywellbeingandlearningjourney.wordpress.com where my original content is.

Please observe my copyright, as now added on each individual post now, because of it being ignored on my site as a whole.

Scheduled posts I had planned…

I have decided to cancel my scheduled posts planned for the time being, until I decide what to do about my blog.

I have been playing about with a post, to see what happens at the site that is gathering my posts as well as others there, displaying mine fully, rather than a snippet, to see what happens.

If I password protect my post, it disappears from the harbouring website.

For readers that do use  password protect some of their blog posts, I would love to hear from you. Please leave your comments in my earlier post; I am seriously thinking password protected sooner, than later.

Thank you.

I will be having a clear out here

I will be looking at the list of readers that follow me via the reader, over the next few days.

So if you follow me this way, I would suggest your profile is up-to-date with your blog link.

I shall be removing followers that:

  • I don’t know, or that I don’t remember ever commenting on my blog.
  • That don’t have a blog on WordPress, displayed in their profile.
  • That don’t have an up-to-date blog link in their profile.
  • Who’s blog I find on their profile that isn’t up-to-date because they don’t post anymore.

Even if  you fit the description of the above, but I feel I cannot relate to you, because of your blog, I could possibly remove you for that reason too. Especially when you have never once commented.

When I have sifted through this list, I will be also going through my email list.

If anyone I delete from list turns out they really want to follow me and are upset, then please don’t take this personally. If you are a genuine follower and have been reading my blog posts, then you would totally understand why I am doing this and you are welcome to rejoin.

This is the first time I have taken this move and I see I have many genuine bloggers that won’t get deleted. But there are also plenty that don’t fall in the above criteria.

I am also considering whether later down the line, to password protect some of my blog posts. So I would like to hear from you, my readers how you feel about that.

Post Update!

I will be password protecting a majority of my posts. See later posts after this one for more details. Thank you.
