Things Seem To Be Back To Normal

“Things seem to be back to normal,” she said, skeptically waiting for the next WordPress glitch to ruin her posting schedule.

Yesterday, I talked about how my site was glitching on the Reader. And after radio silence from WordPress, it seems that things are officially back to normal. For now, until the next glitch happens.

You know, I’m not mad about the glitch itself. No platform is perfect. And WordPress is the poison I’ve chosen. I don’t expect it to be perfect. What pisses me off every single time more than the glitches is how they react. They instantly get super defensive and instead of being like “sorry about the inconvenience and thanks for your patience” they’re just like “what glitch? everything is totally fine…”

I love WordPress. And I really recently thought they were on a path towards improvement. But my experience with this glitch made me realise that this is still the same WP that everyone is mad at. And it’s such a shame because a lot of us love this platform, we’ve built so many friendships here. We put so much time and energy into this platform but get nothing back. Not even basic courtesy. It just sucks and at some point it starts feeling like you’re stuck in a bad marriage. Not that I would know what that’s like but I imagine it’s a lot like this.

Anyway, things seem to be back to normal and I’m grateful that they eventually fixed it even if they were hoity-toity about it. I hope everyones site is okay now, let me know if it is.

  1. It happened all the time, Pooja!! But we can not do anything. They should fix the problems. But your way of explanation is good on the wordpress😊🥰🤗👏👏

    1. Yes, it’s just the way it is. Thanks so much! 😊

      1. My pleasure, Pooja😊🥰🤗🤗🙏

  2. Just a note: there is no “Like” button before you actually click to read more of the post.

    1. On the Reader or when you receive it via email?

  3. I think it’s because there’s not enough ‘6 Word Stories’ 😉

    1. Lol, that may be it 😅

  4. Pooja, my words exactly. My problem was resolved and I was able to like fellow bloggers posts for two days without problems. I spoke too soon and the glitch, problem or issue has return; frustrating.

    1. This is exactly the issue, nothing is permanently fixed. I really hope your issue is resolved soon and it sucks that you have to go through this again.

  5. I was so busy to understand all this until yesterday

    When I shared something and I saw no like or comment option. I was pissed, sad and devastated overall.
    I felt powerless, because interaction is the best power over here.
    I love talking about stuff and who doesn’t love getting comments. I was sad.
    I even had a backache because I wrote that post in 1 sitting, and I was annoyed when I see there was no like option 😡

    I texted to so called happiness Engineer. First he wasn’t understanding what I was telling him. Then I shared 3-4 screenshots and then he got convinced that there’s something wrong.
    He searched my site and saw it himself 🤷🏻‍♂️

    The problem is , I use the jetpack app and don’t know such problems immediately 😫
    However this issue is happening from 4-5 days as I saw cindy ma’am’s post and saw this error.

    I whined a lot yesterday 😅
    It’s bad when the experience is ruined.
    I’ve spent time on LinkedIn and Instagram. LinkedIn have bunch of robots who post and disappear and Instagram have many scumbags.
    There’s no better interface than this.
    But I despise when wp takes that away from us 😩😮‍💨😠

    1. This was a sad read and could’ve been a great article.

      1. My article is out already

    2. didn’t see your post on reader, Devang.
      will check through your site. 🤍

      1. You need to check my site yes…..

        This one is ruined

    3. I’m so sorry to hear that. That’s exactly why I decided not to post until he issue was resolved. It’s frustrating to put out something you put so much effort into and get so few likes/comments.

      They did that to me too and I think they were playing dumb in order to pretend like everything is okay.

      I think WP needs to stop trying to fix things that aren’t broken. WP is fine, there’s no need to make so many changes.

      1. It’s annoying at times

        I am not a great blogger as you
        But a post takes a lot of time. It’s sad to see it getting ruined

        Do you suggest I should repost my latest post??

        1. Yeah, no matter what we all put effort into our post and it sucks when it’s ruined due to a glitch- something out of your control.

          Yes, you should repost it again.

  6. I’ve been hearing from a number of bloggers who are having problems with WordPress, problems like yours as well as other frustrations. I hope everyone might be enjoying decent response (if not polite) and that at least, like you, things are or get back to normal, such as that is. I hope things work all right (if not better) for you and everyone for a long while. Sigh. I hope you have a much less stressed Friday and weekend.

    1. Yes, this issue and others have effected others a lot recently. It’s been tough. I hope things are back to normal now too and that they stay that way but I have little hope when it comes to WP. Thanks so much and have a great weekend too.

  7. I’m so glad it’s fixed and hope you don’t have anymore issues!

    1. Thanks and I hope so too!

  8. seems some posts are not appearing on reader.

    glad everything else is back to normal.
    you handled this well, Pooja
    (knowing your temper etc etc 😋)
    kept us calm too 😁


    1. Yeah, that issue has been happening for years so don’t expect it to be fixed 😞

      Thanks, lol yeah I was surprised I didn’t lose my temper with them 😅

      1. 😁

        welcome and thank you 🤍

        1. Very welcome 😀

  9. Yes I noticed that things are normal now.

    1. Let’s just hope it stays that way 😳

      1. I hope so too

  10. Yeah it’s been very glitchy.. could not even find you in my feed or when I searched for your site. But when I typed in your name it worked. Pretty annoying.

    1. Wow, that really sucks. But yeah, that’s been happening for years and WP refuses to help.

  11. Glad to hear it’s back to normal! It stinks to deal with a glitch and then to have unsatisfactory customer service.

    1. Thanks so much! It definitely sucked but just glad everything is okay again (for now lol).

  12. I didn’t think that wordpress had a normal. I’ve lost my reblogging button. Been gone for years. My content is now nearing max so I won’t be able to post. Looks like I’ll be looking for a different platform soon. Any suggestions?

    1. Yeah, the traffic isn’t what it once was and now they have limits for everything. I would recommend Vocal or self-hosting.

  13. as you say… until the next one…

    1. Exactly, there’s always a next one…

  14. Glad it seems to be back to normal. But it really does make you wonder what they were doing under the hood to break it in the first place. They are always tinkering, for no good reason I might add, and always breaking stuff. If it works, leave it alone! How stupid does a company have to be to not understand that?

    1. Thanks and yeah I’m with you there. They are never transparent about the changes they’re making and always end up breaking something. If something doesn’t need fixing why try to fix it? Especially when there are actual issues that need fixing that they ignore.

  15. It’s status quo for now, Pooj!

    1. Yeah, I think so too!

  16. black pearl

    great eh gudka?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Great indeed!

      1. is it? i got so caught up in meself that i was late for mass. fr erik looked at me and smiled. oops good thing God has a sense of humour Gudka!

        1. He sure does, my entire life is a joke 🙃

          1. not at all my friend. you are alive and i hope well. as for pain and aches and doin the do each and every day well you re like all of us. one third in line, on third asleep. cool huh?

  17. cool cool beans gudka!

  18. Things are normal until the next time is the way I feel, Pooja. Every time WP releases a new version, which they just did, things go wonky. And, I can understand their glitches but I don’t like their attitude when they do.

    1. Exactly, this is the issue with WP. And the way the gaslight us each time into believing there is no glitch. That makes it so much worse.

  19. Good 👍🏾👍🏾!

    1. 😊😊😊

  20. oh man oh man.. thank goodness. frustrating is right Pooja. Thanks for keeping them accountable.. I tried. 💕

    1. Thanks, we all tried and I think that’s what got them to fix it faster!

  21. It’s frustrating when glitches happen, but the lack of acknowledgment adds to the disappointment. Hoping for smoother sailing ahead for all bloggers.

    1. Yes, the lack of acknowledgment and proper help just make sit so much worse. Thanks, hoping for the same.

  22. I’m glad things are back to normal for your site!

    1. Thanks so much, so am I lol!

  23. My sites seems to be working fine for now, but there have been times when I couldn’t get something to post, or something wouldn’t update and I had to log out and log back in only to find my articles gone as if nothing was ever written. That really irritated me. I haven’t noticed anything different lately, but I will be watching for glitches and the like. I am glad everything is back to normal for you. Thanks for sharing. Have a great coming week.

    1. Glad it’s back to normal and sorry you were having issues too. There’s always some glitch or the other and it can definitely be irritating. Thanks and you too.

  24. Yayyyy! Fingers crossed it stays fixed!

    1. Fingers crossed!

  25. I had noticed that on a few people I followed site

    1. Yes, I think it effected everyone on the Business Plan.
