a Dear John Letter to Wordpress ;o)

The Wordpress blog for freebie files is just not working out.
It's over between us. ;o)

I think I have a very workable way with Flickr, instead.

So, nothing will change
in how you download files
(I hope)
but I thought I should let you know about the changes.

And after a week's worth of wasted work uploading
so many useless image files, (and my not being tech-savvy enough
to figure out the problems...) I need a wee rant:

Dear John letter to Wordpress

end rant

Thanks for letting me be a big ol' weirdo!

P.S. No disrespect meant. Wordpress blogs are perfectly lovely;
I just can't handle their bad-boy side!

This was just to funny, but i know how you feel. I have left certain web sites for their bad boy attitude. Hope things run smoother with the change.

Suzi said...

Oh, I love when you go all weirdo on us! Thanks for sharing! Truly!

Margie said...

Aah - so sorry you're having such an awful time trying to be good to us. We do really appreciate all the time you spend and your generosity - just hope things sort themselves out for you.

What a fun way to start the weekend .. this is too funny.

Sorry for your wasted time, I can so relate, twice! But I am so happy to know I am not the only one who can't Wordpress (using as a verb). Thanks!

Thanks Guys! You're THE bestest.

Dear thoughtful Katie,

Thank You so much for taking the time to tell me about dropbox. I did check it out, but it's free limit is 2G and I'd eat that up like potato chips (gone in a flash) LOL. Since I'm already paying for Flickr pro I figured I should find a way to use that. Thanks again!

Love that! I have never used a Wordpress blog but I did look at them before going with Blogger and it gave me a headache. As someone else mentioned, there is Dropbox, and there is also Google Docs. Just a couple of alternatives to keep in mind. Thank you for all of your hard work and the lovely freebies.

It's not just you - I can't crack workpress either

Kim said...

Mel, have you tried media fire? I use that for my free downloadable tutorials. And the best part is it's free.

Chris said...

Glad I am not the only one that couldn't get along with Mr. Wordpress. He did me wrong too :)
