Frustration – Classic Editor

Is anyone else absolutely frustrated?

OK, COVID-19 and the election are more important and annoying – but the WordPress switch to the new editor is infuriating.

Many people blog for pleasure. They are not looking for the newest, hottest technology. If that was the case, they would have moved to Instagram ages ago. Or follow whatever trend rolls through~

dievca – the blog, doesn’t translate to YouTube, Instagram, or Twitter well.    The risqué content limits the audience reached through the WordPress search options. Yet, the blog format works with dievca’s content and has drawn an audience via Google/search engines – not WordPress.

Why does dievca know this? she bought a Business Plan to use Classic Editor plug-in. Yes – she could create on the plug-in, but her blog posts were stored in a staging area and then pushed to WordPress. she lost access to her audience except for people who receive the blog via email or will look for her directly on WordPress. No more search engines, Pinterest or photos connections, etc. she had a drop of about 200-300 views.

dievca explained the numbers to the lovely “Happiness Engineer” and got her money back.  The blog numbers are recovering.

So, now she is on the new editor and tried to load a number of photos… Think of her multiple photos of Sophia Loren in lingerie – not easily done in the new editor. Or maybe it is, but it will take dievca 3 hours to figure it out! Not a pleasure to blog.

Alright – dievca apologises – she is whinging.
But is anyone else frustrated?


Enter my coccon~


Entangled in the sheets.
Enmired in the depths.
Soft fabrics, cozy temperatures,
I won’t emerge soon.

10.5 hours and I’m still reading in bed….my coffee craving will kick me out.

dievca always cries. (Olympics)

Sigh, dievca always cries during the Olympics. Winter or Summer.
Having been an elite Athlete for the USA,
she know how much pain and joy the athletes have known.
Emotions overwhelm her.

dievca is so happy to see the work done to achieve the honor of attending the Olympics.
she hopes every athlete competes well and brings their best.
It is a lifetime of work, presented to the World.

Here’s a photo mix of past inspirational athletes and gold medal winners from Rio.
Amazing.

Sport is one area where the World comes together in Peace.

Tell dievca that you only root for your country, tell her that you are not inspired from a great Road Cycling Race, Football Match, amazing Synchronized Diving skills, a fabulous High Jump — that you are not wiggling in your seat from a catchy Women’s Gymnastic Floor event. If you tell her that…she will make you sit next to her and watch with her eyes.

(BTW, another area of Peace is Science — but that is something for another post.)

PS. dievca mutters and asks questions through each event, analyzing the body mechanics, rules, performance, tactics.  Master is patient with her and is humored.

dievca will cry, again, on August 21st with the closing Ceremonies.
When the time to share the dreams of others comes to an end.
Dreams fulfilled or crushed.
A reflection of Life.
