Once upon a time, there was just ONE consequence to ‘tagging the living life’ out of your posts, NO CHANCE to get on tut ‘Freshly Pressed’…
Well; let’s be honest I’m never gonna be featured there with the tripe I produce. Soooo off I went, I made many categories that are necessary to organise the plethora of topics I write about, and these categories belonged to me and my page only (back in the day)
THEN, the other night, I happened to be browsing through some tags, looking for a suitable post to ignite my reader within… and I noticed that my highly important ‘Change the World’ post was missing from tut BLOGGUS-SPHERE!
Well, I tried copy and pasting and re-posting and again…NO-WHERE to be seen
So, I had a little wander round the support pages and it would seem at least HALF of my posts have never made it past my eyes, EVER!
(I’m broken ;0)
1st – MY categories have been re-classified by word-press, as actual categories that other people use to search…
Now what are the odds of someone typing ‘Dirty Politicians and the Like’ into the tag search bar?
Slim is what they are
Then! THEN! I read on and find out that categories and tags now all count as tags in some strange order of words fashion. AND apparently, if you add too many, your posts shows up to YOU and only you
I was shocked and appalled in equal measure
I think this major alteration in the PUBLISH element of blogging, could have done with a bit more advertising!
For Bettys Sake! I could have been famous by now ;)… and everything!
I knew things were quiet for a reason… nothing to do with my poop writing (A good writer always blames the publisher)
(unrelated – BUT LOOK how many spammy comments I have in the 3rd month of my 33rd year
Bless you spam….
NO Bless for Word-Press today, naughty little withholder’s of very important information
