I am not a fan of WordPress at the moment. I just typed out a post, only to have WP erase it from existence. Ironically, it was going to be the next installment of my Why Does This Exist? series in which I advocate wiping things from existence. While I can appreciate irony as much as anyone, it’s still rather annoying.
That would be frustrating enough on its own, but the sports blog I write for is also powered by a WP engine, and that been having issues today as well. I had a bunch of edits disappear on me this morning, and due to a couple of site crashes, it took me way too long to finish a post.
I realize I should get out of the habit of composing my posts in WordPress, but because I often start and finish my posts on a different computer, it’s much easier to do it that way rather than writing them in a Word document and then copying and pasting. (Or at least it’s easier provided that the post isn’t completely erased!)
So bad news for anyone who was anxiously awaiting my next Why Does this Exist? post. It will just have to wait until next month.
Thankfully, I decided to save the draft of this post immediately before adding that above link, because after doing so, WordPress unexpectedly closed the post editor. Had I not saved the draft, this post would have disappeared as well.
As a result, you will get no images and no fun links with this post! If you want to complain about that, take it up with WordPress!
I guess that’s a bit too harsh. So here’s a video clip where Jar Jar Binks dies in the opening hour of Star Wars: Episode I. Enjoy!
