Anyone affiliated with WordPress as a company…

Dear Ut-hum, Sirs, and Madams:

microsoft

Hello, my name is Paul Schilling ESQ., and like it or not, this letter is not going to serve you well. Please just read it before you put in your hasty and rather ugly comments.

I have been with WordPress for approximately ten years now. Yeah, I remember the days when putting together a blog was as easy as Mom’s apple pie. Even back then, when I enquired a problem, most of the time I could figure it out and run-on quite easily. And oh yes! I can clearly remember the time when all of the “honcho’s” at WordPress were humble, hardworking folks – I’m guessing this was before you made it to the wealthier side of people. Better yet, it was like each one of you still cared about the author who was not the IT.  professional.

Oh well, things have indeed changed for you, eh? WordPress has become to me one of the more frightening episodes that I endeavor each day. Not quite like the old days of blogging whilst working on one’s writing skills, just preparing to produce that best-seller that was well within my grasp. Oh! How times and sites have changed! CLOUD finger-illusions

I have entered the realm of being so scared of trying to produce here that I am about to call it quits. Seriously now gang, nowadays it is waiting and a little more waiting just to see my own domain to appear. No! It is not my cache! I had that cleaned before going out and purchasing a brand-new system. However, it is a number of program changes, downloading my own blog’s C++, and worse still, having a monumental problem without the heads up for a new change in the system. Does one need to be a certified professional these days to put together less than four hundred words anymore?

Maybe not to you, who, I’d love to add, is in the business of providing platforms for the general public to use. Notwithstanding mind you, the two years of paying in advance for the unmitigated non-use of a video program. And hitting me for $99,00 per year to customize this thing? C’mon gang, customize is your wording, not mine. You see I am the type of guy who entertains and tries to make meaning visually and with words.

However, sorting out the code I’d like to use in order to put my own images into widgets has just about driven me to “Maybe you’d like to try…” what for Christ’s sake? I keep getting this message without any directions on how to find the locale of the place to find how to do it. Although, I have had voluminous amounts of time reading, “Preparing your request” in the tiny small boxes at the foot of the page that incidentally covers the WP Admin button that once gained access to between the fight between being covered by some message and wondering where this time WP is going to lead me. 

Just a couple more things and I’ll be done, thank you very much. One, I bought the access code from “Cluster-maps.com” to put in at the very least a map to show who and from where my readers were coming from. Within days, literally, gone was my map. I still do not trust the numbers from WP! Oh, they are still spinning trying to load over at my main site, The Contemplative Thinker.com. Two, same with the widget I am unsuccessfully trying to add, called The Way It Should be… on my http://www.contemplativebeing.com site, that deals with “Sanctuary Cities.”

Hat-tip

Seriously, gang, I am exhausted now trying to work out how to work your once honorable site. I will take a little credit for the likes of several “Captains” in their industry for coming over to WP. Yeah, I have answered the call for you, rather than waiting in and for the unsightliest support aspect site are I could ever hope to partake of…and to think you blokes have the bux.

That will be it for now, or until I make a complete ass out of myself allowing you to know the particulars.
