What is it about……. My take

Rory AKA, Bloke has asked;

What is it about … our community here in WordPress that you like or dislike?

There is nothing to dislike in the WordPress community.

The blogs I follow are amazing. They provide support, entertainment, life lessons, beautiful poetry and wonderful advice. This community has become like a family to me.

When I started to blog, there was just one blog that I followed, that of Dr Tanya of Salted Caramel. She gave me the links of a few blogs that she was following and that’s how I started my journey of discovery in this world. As I started to write and interact with other bloggers, I grew in confidence. My writing improved with time and practice. My ability to interact with others grew with the increased confidence. Basically a shy person in real life, I have overcome this instinct in blogging world and am now at ease with my friends here.

On the other hand, I think we all have complaints regarding WordPress itself! There are a lot of glitches in the app and on the site. The app crashes with regularity and sometimes it doesn’t upload the content, specially if you have a gif in your post. The disappearance of content from the reader results in missing out on posts from our favorite bloggers. The spam issue is another annoying problem, but to be fair , I think that the site cannot do much about it!

These are my thoughts on Rory’s Question. If you want to answer his question, either head over to his post on A Guy Called Bloke or make your own post and answer this question.

  1. Yep, really love the WP community ~ and I have to add that, for me, it all seemed to gel after the demise of the Daily Prompt when the smaller bloggers decided to do their own. That’s when we really began to interact and follow each other.

  2. Glad you are enjoying the community and overcoming your shyness … that explains the brief cryptic messages at first … definitely you are more relaxed and opening up, so nice to see!
    WP is essentially a free services although I pay to have their ads removed … so it does well. I miss their daily prompts and missing material in the reader does stink 🙂
