Getting no joy

Well after a few days playing around with Blogger, including this morning. I am getting no joy with it. So I deleted the blog.

So if ever WordPress get rid of Classic Editor down the line. I am gone for good, as I will have no where else to blog.

Thank you WordPress for putting a damper on this month. You like to time things right don’t you?

What was the whole point plauing around with the current editor, only to get rid in the end for block editor? You are about as good as our Government. Get paid for wasting time and, not being productive and not thinking how it affects the users long term.

I’m so glad I am not on a paid version of the blog.

Can’t you tell I hate WordPress big time now.

Setting up a blog at Blogger. Just in case.

Even though I said I wouldn’t be even going back to Blogger, to blog, if WordPress get rid of the Classic Editor in years to come, I have set up one and playing about with it, just in case WordPress do and just in case I change my mind and blog at Blogger again.

I won’t share the link with it not being public and with me still currently blogging here. But if I do choose to blog there, lets hope I can create a very short post to let you know before I close it, if Classic Editor disappears in years to come here.

Some posts are going over there that I already written here and are in draft. But not all will be moved across. It’s so I can have a feel of their dashboard again, although I see nothing has changed.

WordPress Happiness Engineers, don’t ever plan on getting rid of classic editor while block editor is in use.

Dear WordPress. Your title ‘Happiness Engineers’ these past few months is a title I don’t agree with anymore. I think that title is about as funny as, ‘pigs can fly.’

You have really proven now how unhappy you can make a majority of WordPress users unhappy, whether they pay for their blog, or use a free one by throwing the Block Editor in our face from 1st June, whether we like it or not. Yet all I read from you is how a majority supposedly like it. Well from where I am sitting and reading, it’s not what I am seeing. So I don’t belive you.

But thank you for keeping the Classic Editor going, cos that is what I will be using and while Block Editor continues to be used, I do hope that you continue to keep Classic Editor going long after 2022. Please don’t ever get rid.

It’s obvious to me that I need to keep writing as part of my wellbeing. But if you ever get rid of Classic Editor means I will just have to disappear altogether off WordPress.

Not having anywhere else to go, or the idea of not writing on WordPress, bears not thinking about. But I am not able to use Block Editor on my phone. There is just not enough screen space for that editor, for me.
My phone is only where I have internet. I cannot afford internet via other means to use a computer and do it that way. The editor is also visually to busy for me and using a computer will not mske it visually any better.
A lot of things I have to sift through that don’t apply to me, making posting hours, not minutes on posts that are short in length. It makes the whole thing  confusing.

I have seen how others explain how they have struggled to use it, but have shared steps to try and make the process easier for everyone else. It doesn’t make a difference. I still see the same images for the layouts of how to find what you want to create a post and as I have said, this is visually too busy for me.

So to WordPress and my readers, the day Classic Editor is ever removed, which wouldn’t surprise me in years to come WordPress Happiness Engineers doing this, I will disappear without any warning, because I won’t be able to write my post and I will be so heart broken if I have to do that, if I still feel about blogging, as I do now.

But just remember WordPress. I am not the only one that has spoken that will do this, so just think, even for a free blog, that means as I would remove my blog and not post no more, that’s one blog less you can’t put adverts on. Just how many more would you lose, whether paid or free and what affect will it have on your income, ‘Happiness Engineers?’ (What a joke that name.)

Did you know WordPress is going to change their WordPress editor on 1st June?

I noticed via my WordPress dashboard that WordPress are going to change their WordPress editor on 1st June. Are you aware? If not, then see the link below.

I for one is not going to like this change and I won’t be using it.
Thankfully, as they explain in the post below, you can stick with a classic version.

I have looked at other people’s comments about this change and it’s mixed reviews as you can guess. But seems to be a majority not happy with this change.
I am in aggreements as one has already commented about, that it takes longer in creating their post.
Also someone else raised that it was not working with their reader that they rely on as a blind person.
One from WordPress commented on that it should be workable with their readers and so they said they would email to sort that issue out.

As I have said, I will continue with classic. But you know what WordPress is like, they get rid of things after a while, so how long before they choose to do that?
If they do and I am forced to use the new editor that is complicated for me, then my blog will come to an end and I will remove it.

So what are your views on WordPress making these changes? 

For anything technical you are not sure about when it comes to this, then please don’t ask me. I don’t have a clue. If you can’t find your answers in post link below, then you will have to contact those happiness engineers at WordPress. *Cough. Cough.*

Blog update

Please note that past posts that were still open, I have now closed to further comments during my blogging break. 

I have also changed the comment settings on my blog: future posts I write from today will automatically close to further comments when the post is older than 28 days, with exception of the odd posts, depending on what I write, or share, some may not be open to comments at all, or closed earlier, like I have done in the past.
‘It’s the weekend,’ post is one example that will close earlier. I will close them by the night before, or on the day the latest, ‘It’s the weekend’ post airs. 

Thank you and see you Tuesday, when back to posting.

Blog post re-share: We Are Not In The Same Boat by Lilly Eves World

This is so true. “We are in the same storm, but not the same boat.”

Lilly Eves World

I often hear “we are all in the same boat”, but that’s not exactly accurate. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked and mine might not be. Or vice versa.

For some, quarantine is optimal. A moment of reflection, of re-connection, easy in flip flops, with a cocktail or coffee. For others, this is a desperate financial & family crisis.

For some that live alone they’re facing endless loneliness. While for others it is peace, rest & time with their mother, father, sons & daughters.

With the increase in unemployment some are bringing in more money to their households than they were working. Others are working more hours for less money due to pay cuts or loss in sales.

Some were concerned about getting a certain chocolate for Easter while others were concerned if there would be enough bread, milk…

Blog post re-share: Quarantine Tips: A Night At The Theatre! By The Grief Reality

Excellent post here, of further ideas to help you get through lock down, or for staycation.

The Grief Reality

I try to keep in mind that this quarantine is a marathon, not a sprint. Except, with a marathon, you are aware of the distance you need to run and you have been training for months. In February I never predicted that we’d not be able to leave our houses within a couple of months’ time, yet here we are. And we don’t really know how long this will last for, after the government’s recent extension. 

So, how do we make this quarantine bearable? 

Well, Evee has mentioned how she has made her room a cosy environment to live and suggested ways you can too. But what do we do with our time now, particularly now the weather is brighter and we have longer evenings to enjoy? 

We are getting creative, and actually, one Saturday we all got dressed up, had a 3 course meal and went to the theatre!…
