WordPress, seriously ?

00000003

Okay, this is my 4th attempt to post today.  First one was fail. The second one went through , because I did something…..  3rd one just disappeared as I was putting a category and tag on my post. ( that post didn’t get automatically saved ….. for some reason, there was no ” draft saved ” I could fall back on ) . This one is my fourth .  I swear I’m going to leave WordPress  if this doesn’t  get published. ! !

 

So, wassup, Wordpre$$  ? ?  You okay ?

 

Here’s the sleazy story.

 

(._.”)

 

I posted about my email problem and WordPress a while back.  I found out it was my email server’s problem.  Microsoft doesn’t support @live.com anymore, and I guess live.com doesn’t have the capability to accept new posts from WordPress anymore…. although I still get email notifications of LIKES and FOLLOWS form WP and from other sources.  I’m supposed to get a new email provider, like gmail, but , I haven’t done that. I ‘m too lazy to notify my credit card companies, bank, etc.  My fault, my bad.

 

I’m using READER now to read blogs.

 

Here’s the problem.

 

I tried posting pictures of  our Christmas Day dinner the day after Christmas as per my own tradition…… WordPress failed to publish it, and worse,  while I was writing,  I kept on getting a notification that ” saving the post failed.”  I ignored it, and tried to publish my post immediately without saving.  Epic Fail ! !   I spent hours to write that post, darn it.  ( posting pics on WordPress sucks , by the way . )

 

I tried reading blogs , too, but guess what,  NO posts on READER ! Completely blank !  That was 2 weeks ago and to date.

 

Here’s the thing .

 

(o_O)

 

I’ve been getting notification from WordPress that my annual  Premium Plan is expiring.

 

And guess what the date of expiration is…. Jan.8, 2018.  Today !

 

Apparently,  American Express had declined my payment of  US $99.00 to WordPress.  WP notified me it was American Express ‘ anti-fraud  action on WP.  ” Please use another card ” . So I used another card…. and my transaction was successful.  ( apparently , American Express does not trust WP’s security system ).  I use American Express all the time, and only use the other card on stores that don’t accept American Express.

 

Then,

 

Lo and behold !

 

The short post got published !  ( minutes after paying …. ) And the Reader appears again !

 

So, what’s up, Wordpre$$$$$$ ?  Is that a new policy now ? Pay up , or else ????

 

Wordpre$$, seriously ?

 

That’s all.
