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.
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?
I do not do resolutions, as for myself personally, it is almost like I am intentionally setting myself up to fail. At this point in my life, I see no need to put any more pressure upon myself than I already do 🙂
I of course have some goals I hope to achieve, mostly getting healthy (healthier), appreciating each day for the gift that it truly is, being a better Mom, a better Witness to Jesus, and a better friend.
I will continue to work on keeping my 3 blogs polished, current, and fun to read, reach for some personal goals in my career, and reach for new goals in my personal life.
May your 2015 bring you health, happiness, blessings, and answers to your prayers!

I Hope This Goes Better Than I Am Expecting! Probably not what you expected either, from the title!
I am moving my blogs to a self-hosted website, so I can have more control over how my pages look, as well as what add-ins are displayed. I am hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. So, I will be absolutely devastated if my followers don’t get redirected to my new website as it states it will do.
I know several of you are following two of my blogs, and one of you is following all 3 ( J ). I do not know how long this transition may take, but I will definitely keep them open where they are at until I know I can export everything over.
So, if I disappear for a while, I apologize, I will just be sitting in front of my laptop, crying because I messed something up!
THIRD TRY on posting on this blog…….
Every time I post on this blog, it disappears when I publish it 😦 It does not happen with the 2 other blogs I run from here. I would like to say that I hope the changes WordPress made to their website would eliminate this issue, whatever it is. But since it just happened, again, I will take that as a big fat NO.
So, I am hoping these WordPress changes will not make that book I bought last year on how to use WordPress invalid. Because I was going to read it. This weekend. Really 🙂
School is winding down this week (for my girls, not me) and I hope they can behave as well as they did last year and let me sleep during the day. I also hope they do their chores and help around the house so I can lighten this load on my back a little bit.
LOL, not to that extent, but fair enough!
