It’s become unusable to me. It’s slow. Little “interactive” widgets keep popping up on the screen, when all I want to do is add words. I can’t even add words the way I used to, because the typing action is a split second slower than it used to be, which disrupts the human thought process.
Much of this disrupts the human process, period.
What was once a pretty decent solution to the problem of “how do I quickly and easily publish my words?” has now become a bloated “next-generation platform for content creation”.
And that’s just depressing.
But maybe it’s what I need, anyway. I need a better and more logical way to blog. I need a way that leverages my 25+ years of coding skills.
I’ve been thinking about it, too. I think I know a way.
WordPress is pushing me out by making its platform unusable in ways that are, frankly, beyond them – and no, I don’t buy the whole excuse about “well, it has some kinks, but we’ll work that out as we go along”. That way of thinking has just wrecked so much of the web and the promise of technology. I don’t care what anybody says. It’s just…. no.
And if you think it’s fine, then you’ve succumbed. Sorry, you have.
Well, enough of this ranting. I’ll let you know where you can find my writing later on.
Time to go set up my other site.
