Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Good Monday (I hope) Morning to you if you are in my neck of the woods or afternoon or evening wherever this finds you on the globe.

I love to love!

I hate to hate.

I love our country

I hate what’s happening in the world right now.

But I’m not taking this worldwide today, I’m keeping this real and local with my very own Love Hate relationship I have with WordPress.

It’s very similar to my Love Hate relationship I have with Apple but again I’m keeping the focus on WP.

And I Hate that I am so inept and or they are in troubleshooting problems.

I so love that you were ALL here for me this weekend and I can’t begin to thank you, as I know how busy you all are, and I hated to bother you.

Wait! What weekend?!
I kid you not I spent All of
Fun Fri-Yay and Saturday and a lot of Sunday trying to troubleshoot problems on my last post and still haven’t gotten to the bottom of it with WP.

You’ve got to know if you mess with my Fun Fri-Yay, I’m not a happy camper. Alrighty, so on a scale of what’s happening in the world, this is peanuts I know, but it’s a waste of precious time all the way around but necessary when you are trying to get your word out in the world.

If you missed my post I’ve love for you to have a look Fun on Fri-Yay, The Catch, an Update and a Talk/ Meditation. Check out the video for the day on my last post and feel free to scroll through to the talk and meditation!

Yes my Love-Hate relationship with the “Happiness Engineers” continues.

I’ll just say this isn’t Disneyland and WP is usually my happy place because I get to see all of you which is one of my highlights but when you turn my Fun- Fri-Yay into a technological nightmare and Monopolize by weekend, I’ve got a problem.

YES, I’m complaining which I rarely do here, but I’m heated.

First off, I want to just say Thank you to all of you for taking time to check my Friday post and respond. I could tell my post wasn’t showing up in reader and I contacted WP pronto who said “everything was fine” and asked me for each person who said they couldn’t see me, which seemed like most of you. That’s when I started to connect with you all, to ask for help.

A resounding amount of you did NOT see me in Reader on Friday.

When we are active on our blog, we know what we know and who our friends/followers are, and they are often there just about as soon as we write for the most part.

Of course everyone has a schedule and comes when they can read, but it’s fishy, when you aren’t seeing any of them.

Let me be clear that WP is very kind and warm putting on there happy smile, but I pay you to get a job done and when the answers I get don’t match the comments I receive, we have a problem. Let’s just say, I trust you all, more than I do them. They made a point to tell me “many of the comments that say they are following you, aren’t and of course, I can divulge who they are.” I responded, Of course not, I wouldn’t expect that”.

Here are some of the comments
I got from them.

Here were my responses.

Here were some of yours which I appreciate. I’ve taken out names to keep this anonymous for everyone’s sake and I’m taking the heat.

Coming out and saying all of this, is a little bit like going to a restaurant and complaining at the risk of them spitting in your food. But one thing you can count on me for, is I Won’t Be Silenced which is one of my poems in Wounds I’ve Healed: Poetry of Strong Woman.

I wish I didn’t care about my blog this much but I do. Anything I choose to put my stamp on and work on in my life, is important to me and I do 100% and I expect people I am paying to do a job for me, to do the same thing.

To be clear, I do NOT get paid to blog. I do it for the love of it. I truly love our community and connection. But when it starts eroding at my time and chips away at my happy place, it’s time to reevaluate.

This wasn’t going to be a post about blogging, but I suppose it is somewhat and besides, I know that so many of you are having a lot of the same problems, so I’m speaking up for all of us.

We know to get followers it is important that you engage with your followers and read their work. It’s all about being reciprocal and finding people that you enjoy interacting with and learning from. This DOES increase your blog followers it’s true, and is important for newbies starting out to know.

You get out of it what you put into it, but that is NOT why I comment and share insights etc. I comment because I am genuinely interested in what you have to say. I don’t take for granted every like or comment someone gives me, as I know how much time it takes and I truly am grateful.

What I’ve learned:

You know what you know, if something is off with your post.

A few things you could try is to unfollow and follow people and they may show up in your reader or not but it’s worth a try.

Put on a notification if you want to make sure you get someone’s blog post.

Follow who you want to read regularly.

You can add them to your favorites.

If you can, I would appreciate you doing the above for me. Thank you so much.

If you are following a lot of people you may not see them right away.

Refresh Refresh Refresh!

Comment Comment Comment!

If you missed Priorhouse Post on Diana’s New Book coming soon read it as they have a good line about the importance of commenting. Besides, her new book looks amazing and you can put it in the queue to buy.

The reason commenting and relationships are so important is because if people don’t see you in reader they will see you commenting on their post or others and remember to look you up.

Here is a comment I received that speaks to this:

Hi Cindy
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment!
I must share that I NEVER see your posts in my reader and I have unfollowed and re-followed.
And the reason I get your posts is because you usually drop by to say hi on my blog!
And that ties in here because as Diana was offering tips – and the topic of commenting came up – Cindy – you also model the commitment to commenting and I want to mention that because it keeps you present!
“Out of sight – out of mind”
But
“Leaving a comment and it makes your presence known”-


You can’t tell me that WordPress like google, doesn’t have speed issues like this follower says
below.


Thank you and no- I don’t recall seeing you in my
stream yesterday on WP. Seems WP has issues
like Google. Sometimes my mail shows up read or
delayed half a day. They need to stop fixing what


No. I didn’t see your post
yesterday. I am familiar with it. Not very often, but
sometimes it happened to me too. I believe there
is some sort of software issue with WordPress.


Here too actually! Not just you!


Another:

You are not in my reader today.


BTW WordPress has been driving me crazy.
It doesn’t help that I’ve had a couple of weird weeks.


Technology doesn’t like you much, I guess….I got
archived, or comments gone In spam or WP
misses you from reader@
You replied to this comment.

Here is an email and tip I just received from WP:

In reviewing the post, I see you are frustrated with your experience with our support. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do specifically right now to make your WordPress.com experience better! As we mentioned before, while we can’t share details about your individual followers, we do recommend asking any followers who are not seeing your posts in the feed to navigate to their notification settings and making sure the updates are turned on from your site.

This guide has instructions on how they can turn on notifications:

Whew, now that I have that off my chest, may all of your problems be as small as this and resolved.

Take time for a reset and listen to my video from my last post if you have a chance. Again, no need to listen to the update just scroll through. If I can upload the short version later I will.

Have a wonderful Monday.
Thank goodness work starts today which is my sanity.

Take care of you, speak your mind, let it go but don’t let people off the hook. Stay your ground and do have a happy day.

Thank you WordPress for putting on your happy smile and please make us happy by getting the job done and the bugs worked out. We do appreciate your efforts but want results.

Stay Blessed and When in doubt blame WP or your mother or father… 😂😂😂. After all that’s what our kids do!

💖😂

I’m so sorry you’re still having trouble with WP. Believe me, I have had my share of them and it is not fun. Sometimes it feels like pulling teeth to get something fixed. Now that I have officially blacklisted myself with this comments and really made sure they never help me again, I wanted to wish you good luck- I hope everything gets resolved very soon! 💕

I have never loved WordPress, and I hate it quite often. WordPress got so unusable in 2015, I switched to my photo site blog for three years until it got unusable and forced me to switch back to WP. I started working on self-hosting my WP site, but that opened up a can of worms I didn’t want to deal with. I just put up with WP, but there are times I get so fed up that I consider not blogging.

You are back in my reader and I got an email notification for this post, so all is good for the moment. I love your Love/Hate poem.

WP is far from perfect. They have helped me with a few issues but the process is maddening. I even identified a problem for them they didn’t know existed. I can’t recall the specifics.😄 Here’s to not having to deal with the WP folks who say they are there to help. Cheers! 🎉

Hi Cindy! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had this problem through the years! On this site and others here on wordpress (the others are inactive. Ironically it was a problem when I hit the publish button live! When I “scheduled” a post ahead of time it never happened that I can remember. So I always schedule my posts now hours ahead of time. I needed at least 10 minutes ahead in order for it to go successfully. It really works to schedule them.

If you already schedule them, then I don’t know what to say!

Dear Cindy, while this is frustrating to deal with, I am sp glad that your problem is resolved and love your child like insistence on things be what they are supposed to be – I love how you are fully where you are and truly own the process of what it takes to be on this platform – the connections built here are priceless and they get built with true and deep sincere dedication to being present with time and comments. I hope to return to this space again, soon Godwilling, for now allowing life to carry me, grateful for the np-rush pause phase I am in. Just dropped in to say I truly value you and your words.

from personal experience over the past days make sure your theme doesn’t “retire”…
I received this response today as I don’t look at my dashboard…and no emails are sent to inform you😞
…”I understand how upsetting surprises like this can be. Paying for hosting here at WordPress.com doesn’t guarantee that your site will stay the same forever”…

I always liked the stodgy formal feeling of my WP blog…not today though.😞

but new things always emerge…this I know. ~ sending you blogging joy Cindy ~ hugs hedy

Owww this is the first post in a while to reach me in my reader! Yes I check daily in the morning and I didn’t see any on those posts. I usually like yours, sometimes I’m brave enough to comment. You also visit my blog with likes and comments so WP can “know” were mutuals!
Im sorry I missed so many of your posts. Will definitely look them up. Sorry you have been struggling so much.
I had issues with writing posts on my (free) site for a while. Their support was indeed kind but unfortunately didn’t help me in any way until a. Ew update of the app came. I still struggle on my old tablet but my new phone is working better now.

Aww, seems like a hell-ish weekend. I actually reach out to all my blogger friends whose posts I don’t see on my reader to let them know because WP be doing crazy things! I haven’t seen your Friday post but that’s also because I was on a short hiatus but I’ll go check it out now. Are you on Instagram? I’d love to follow you there to keep updated with all your posts.

As you and I have disused many times over the years, WP is so amazing and so terribly difficult at times. I’m sorry this keeps happening, and I hope that it stops soon. You’ve given out a wealth of information for our community, and we appreciate you greatly for it. Thank you, Cindy! 🙏💖

Anything that you brave and serves as an extension of yourself makes you duty bound to see that its treated with the utmost respect by all, imo. After all, are we not the greatest models for those who cherish and admire us?

I can’t really help with the Reader issue as I tend to read posts by clicking through from the email notification and rarely use the Reader. For me, it is a last resort for adding a comment to a post I’ve already read but which for some reason WP won’t let me comment on. I hope they sort out your frustrations soon!

I really appreciated your honesty in this post and you provided substantial information. Being new to WP and really trying to get myself out there I have experienced some technical issues as well. It is definitely time consuming but if you’re an individual that writes from inspiration you have to be sure to not lose that motivation. I can say within this short time I’ve used WP I was being to think I developed a love / hate relationship. I truly hope the glitches are resolved soon. Best of luck to you!

Oh wow. Definitely not surprised with all the craziness surrounding WP. I’m going to remain vigilant and watch out for the scammers. 🙄 I’m not a quitter so I’m going to stay calm and be patient through the process. Hopefully I won’t experience anymore headaches with the site, but I’m guessing it wouldn’t be normal if the site doesn’t give me any issues. Lol Take care ❤️

😂 That’s the funniest saying I’ve ever heard. It’s always good to make the best out of a frustrating situation. Technology is definitely not what it once was. It lacks in many areas and since it’s supposed to be so smart and cutting-edge why can’t it fix itself?! 🤦🏽‍♀️

Humor is great medicine. There’s always some truth to a joke, but I think the “HE’s” will probably not unless they have a good sense of humor.

Cindy such a lovely and uplifting post. WordPress has really given all of us a great problem.

Pass the peanuts, Cindy! I think I speak for most of us when I say “I feel your pain!” I, too, have a love-hate relationship with WordPress and the Happiness Engineers (as they call themselves) who work there. No need to go into detail; this is, after all, your page. It’s a strong love-hate relationship not unlike my love-hate relationships with Optimum and Verizon. And don’t even get me started with the government! Mess with Fun-Fri-Yay and there will be hell to pay! 🤣 ☄️ 🤣 🔥 🤣

It seems like, ever since WP did some sort of upgrade, the service has not been as professional. I don’t know if they not hiring the right IT or simply don’t care. But the difference is noticeable.

Perhaps WP should consider upgrading the back end…it can be very frustrating…I had my share in 2020…I had to take a drastic decision & had to start all over…I had to tell myself that there was a deeper meaning in whatever was happening…it was like cleaning my slate…then only I was at peace…I agree, things should simply work…that’s what we feel n say…but everything has glitches…WP, IG, Windows, different operating systems, softwares etc etc…but things can work with updates now & then…that’s why I wrote, perhaps they should consider updating their tool…thx for your sharing, Cindy…this will make them see that so many people have faced problems…so they better do something abt such glitches…instead of playing ping-pong…fortunately, their support people are polite & they to respond unlike some other companies…

I feel the same way about this blogging site sister!! That’s a part of why I limit my time on here because it causes unnecessary frustrations 🤯 As far as the state of our country, I stand firmly ,hand in hand with my fellow women. I chose to have an abortion the year before my first son Ty was born. It was the hardest thing I had to do yet I am completely satisfied with my decision. I am happy I had the freedom to do what I needed to do with my body and for my life! All we have control over is to be kind and loving towards one another, no matter their opinions or our circumstances. Period. That is what I intend to do and what my heart continues to do, every day. We are the wayshowers and the vibration raisers. Like I always close my posts and my healing sessions, In light and in shadow, always with love ❤️ Namaste 🙏

It is happening with me as well. Many times I don’t see latest posts by people I am following in the reader. They also told me the same thing about my blogs. While, I keep wondering why they are not reading my stuff. Also, wp identifies me as a spammer. Most of my comments, goes into the spam (on other’s site).
I also have issue when I publish a blog and it shows date of 2 days old.

I appreciate you, Cindy and your concerns for your followers. All of us should learn from you. WP glitches are not new. Almost all of us get frustrated at some point. There are a number of my followers, whose posts don’t show up my reader despite unfollowing and following exercise. When I visit their sites, I get access to their posts. I think WP is also facing traffic problem. Anyway, have a nice time and enjoy this fun too. 😊🤗💐💖
