A Blogger’s Lament: A Note to WordPress

It feels like you’ve gone from alpha to beta,

From starting string to sideline player.

The changes you’ve made (meant to improve)

Have knocked me out of my blogging groove.

The colors, the scale, the overall tools

Feels like something designed by and for Playschool.

My posts, which I used to find with a click

Are now hidden behind walls so very thick.

My notification flag constantly glows

Even after I’ve read all that it knows.

My reader has turned from a thing of real beauty

Into a place that I visit only from duty.

The map feature that’s added refuses to load

And the blogging experience has entirely slowed.

So, please, WordPress, If you know what’s best,

Return to your roots and let us do the rest.

  1. Absolutely totally agree with you. Well said.

  2. I agree. I am finding the new reader virtually impossible to use. I seem to keep missing posts – and they seem to appear in no definite order.

    I so agree with you! I don’t like the new version at all — so not-user-friendly!

  4. Agreed.
