This post is just a way for me to test if my post would appear on the WordPress Reader.
More than an hour earlier, I published a blog party post (where you can share your blog with us), but unfortunately, the post didn’t appear on the WordPress reader. I suspected that there was something wrong when after an hour of publishing it, the post only received 6 likes and 13 views. While I am not pretentious enough to assume that many people would “like” my post everytime I publish one, I still find it strange for this type of post to have a low stat since it’s always popular. So, I had a look at my WP Reader to see what on earth’s going on. It turned out that my blog post didn’t show up on the Reader (Yup, I follow my own blog).
This is not the first time it happened. When I encountered this glitch for the first time, the problem solved itself when my post appeared on the Reader an hour later. However, in this case, there’s no sign that the post would pop up on the Reader anytime soon. So, if you want to join the blog party and promote your blog, just click here to view the post.
For this week, this isn’t the only bug that I experienced. On Tuesday, when I posted the quote, the text didn’t show up even though it was there the whole time. I had to click “Update” for the text to appear.
Also, while compiling my Gleanings post yesterday, the post mysteriously vanished when I hit “Publish”. Even the WordPress Support staff that I contacted was baffled and can’t figure out what happened. Probably, it went to the “Internet Blackhole”, whererever that is. Luckily, the post was in a Word document. Hence, I only had to paste it.
In fairness to the WordPress Support, they’re very patient and helpful, and they tried hard enough. I had seen many types of “customer service” before and few of them live up to their name. I am glad that the WordPress Support is indeed supportive.
How about you? Did you experience any difficulties during the last few days while using WordPress? Or is it just an isolated case wherein I am one of the few unlucky fellows who encountered the bugs? Let’s hear your thoughts.
