    Oh this news just pissed me off. I don’t usually do the Daily Prompt, but when I first came to WordPress, I did them every day. Of course, THEN they had a whole sentence to put the word into some kind of context. Last year or so, that changed to the whole one word business. Now they’re doing away with the idea altogether. Marilyn of Serendipity, postulated that it’s because WP is more interested in garnering ‘big bucks’ from companies, than it is in maintaining the personal touch. I’m leaning toward believing that actually. I wonder how long now until personal blogs are shoved out. Even though some of us pay too…

      I’ve seen the writing on the wall about this for quite some time. It was inevitable. I read Marilyn’s blog, and she’s probably right. But WordPress is, bottom line, a business and they’re in the business of making money. They’ve been pushing the personal blog people further and further down the list for a *long* time now. It sucks, but like any other business, they’re looking to the bottom line.

      Like, I don’t agree with the move, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. They haven’t been a great blog service since I signed up six years ago, but they’re the best out there that I can find, so I just sigh, shake my head and keep on keeping on. It’s either that or go with someone even worse. Like… blogger. bleh.
