9 Year Anniversary On Word Press
I received this last month. Nine years! It seems like yesterday, but it also seems like 9 years ago. I’m 9 years older now and just had the third year anniversary of being a breast cancer survivor. I’ve not consistently blogged since 2018. With each month, I intend to get back to a schedule so I can read blogs I follow; so I can comment on them; so I can continue making new blogging friends. Each month goes by and rather than finding more time to spend on Word Press, there is less time. However, I’ve not given up hope.
Currently, I’m working on something that if resolved, should help thousands of senior citizens in the State of Illinois. Since May, it has taken up much of my time. More and more, I lose faith in the powers that be. They are only as good as their gatekeepers. We have come to a time when those holding positions with government agencies, including agencies headed by an elected official, do not provide email addresses to anyone specific in their office. It’s a general email account and if you do get a reply, it’s from someone who is anonymous.
At times I’ve considered they don’t want to give their name because if the elected official runs for re-election and the matter they disregarded is made public, they can deny having any knowledge.
Don’t worry. After I’ve exhausted all options, I will write a post about it naming names, giving credit where it is deserved, and those who failed to do their jobs.
I think that I have PTSD after four years of Trump’s lies. There are also times when I know I feel too deeply and try too hard to understand people who disrespect the lives of others. Yes – I’m talking about people who rebelled against Executive Orders by Governors to wear masks in public. They argue with store clerks, (and even killed at least one), and get in the faces of those wearing masks. I hurt for nurses, doctors, and hospital staff overall. They need a break and not only that, but people who need surgery and treatment for serious health matters have waited over a year, while hospital beds fill-up with people who won’t wear masks in public and won’t get vaccinated..
Getting off that soap box and back on the subject of blogging, it hasn’t helped that Word Press changed to a block editor. I really wish that Word Press would have given us a choice to keep the classic editor without having to work-around the block editor. Much of my hesitation to write a blog post is because of getting around the block editor.
I do not know if the block editor is the reason I also have problems reblogging others. Most times, I have to go to the reader, search for the post, and click to reblog from there because the button doesn’t work on the actual blog post.
Overall, I’ve had a wonderful time blogging and I miss communicating with so many of you. Here’s looking forward to having more time to spend with you.
