WTH WordPress?

Published July 11, 2017 by Angela

I have noticed some changes to WordPress over the last few weeks, and the platform as a whole is starting to frustrate my life. Because I definitely need more frustration in my life, especially when I have 3 different blogs.

The first thing I noticed is that many posts have 2 different links to the blog. Meaning, at the very top of the page, instead of one link to the blog’s website, there are two different links (you will see examples below). When I post a comment on these dual blog posts, it seems to go off into cyberspace and does not show up on that blog.

Problem #2. Is there a Blog-Post Webstore somewhere that I am not aware of? I see the same exact blog post being posted by numerous different bloggers. The example I show below, of 6 identical posts, is 6 identical posts out of the 30+ of this post that I counted this morning.PAOHS 7-11-17

Do people not write their own blogs anymore? Why are there 30+ bloggers posting the same exact post? I am honestly very curious as to what is going on, because it is frustrating when I am searching for blog posts on a subject, and I have to scroll through the same post, over-and-over again.

In the example below (and this is no offense to those bloggers who did this, I am truly very curious as to the reasoning)…. I was searching for “Editor”. Hotel loyalty posts with an “editor” tag?

What gives WordPress?
