Happy Anniversary With WordPress.com! | September 25 2018

Today I got this notification from WordPress.com:

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!

You registered on WordPress.com 11 years ago.

Thanks for flying with us.

Keep up the good blogging.

Thank you WordPress.com for another year of blogging, and I hope that the future Gutenberg Editor does not mess that up because in its current form I would possibly no longer be able to blog like I want to because it lacks the things that I need to blog like I normally do and it is not better than the current editor; and I would possibly quit blogging here if the current version of the Gutenberg Editor was all that was available to make your posts in, but there is a possibility that I could adjust to the worst editor.

The end,

-John Jr

Wow, I don’t know many blogs that have been running for so long. That editor has me worried. Why do companies have to change something that works fine? I hate it whenever Facebook/Youtube/Gmail change their UI.

Hello The Otaku Judge,

Yeah, it seems that most bloggers do not make it even past the first year or so around here (so many have come and gone over the years, I guess I am old by blogger standards. 😀

Yeah, me too, I am not against positive helpful improvements but I do not like the new trends that makes things worse and removes features that I use and make things harder to use et cetera.

It seems that many programmers / developers now-a-days have a completely different mindset or something, like they are from another planet when it comes to design et cetera, it is strange and is increasingly making things more difficult for people like myself and for people even older than me.

I hate the lack of text to describe what labels et cetera represent, they assume that we somehow know what all symbols represent, and I hate the hiding and scattering of settings and menus et cetera; and I hate when they remove things that I use (which is often).

With each change of the WordPress.com Editor they have removed something that I used to use, which keeps making it harder for me, and me and others have had to complain at the forums and by email et cetera until they slightly give us a few things back but never everything.

Now I do not feel like fighting anymore, and so I am not sure what I am going to do if the Gutenberg Editor does not improve, fortunately we can still use the old one for now, but eventually they will likely force us to the new one; but maybe it will at least be usable by then.

I would have moved to Google’s Blogger years ago if it were not for the fact that I can not import my WordPress.com blog there because the import file is too big because I have so many posts, maybe that is a good thing though, because it does not seem that Google has updated Blogger much or at all and may cancel it one day like they did Google Reader (which I used to use).

Thank you for commenting,
