I logged in to WordPress, started a new post and something flashed up on the screen. Then something else, then I had lost what I started doing. In my list of posts is a page just begun with only part of the title. Odd, because something similar happened yesterday when I tried to write a post.
So I start again, this time having forgotten what I was going to write about and instead write about the distractions that WordPress itself now provides when you try to write a new post. WordPress used to be somewhere you quickly went to and wrote a thought and posted it. WordPress is now a product that wants to tell you all about WordPress. I This was the result:
WordPress had interrupted my attempt to create a post to take me to a page to tell me about WordPress. Why would I want to be told at this point, when I’m already using it to write a post? This is stupid, inconsiderate design. Why not go here when I logged in, not when I am trying to put my thoughts on the page?
Now I have lost my train of thought and so won’t be writing the blog post I wanted to write. WordPress has successfully sabotaged its own purpose – and mine – by trying to promote itself. And now I am angry with the developers.
Edit: Aaarrgghh!! I realised I had not put a title on this post, went back in to edit it, started writing the title and WordFuckingPress jumped to that elf-promotion page again. WHY? Why send me there EVERY FUCKING TIME? Why do it WHEN I AM TRYING TO EDIT A POST?
