WordPress Changes…thankyou now I have a reason to get off the computer and garden

Am I the only person who has had a craw full of waking up to find another ‘update’ has attacked my blog and made life more annoying?

I got on the computer this morning..went to check notifications..the sidebar thingie comes up..all fancy shmancy..and yep..no Archives..so all I can see are comments etc the length on my screen..go to scroll down..disappears…urghhhh

So now I have to go to the unclassic dashboard or CAC Central annoyance centre and check..of course limited in amounts as well..
So if I want to see if anyone has responded to something I have commented on THEIR blogs..do i have to go visit all these blogs again???

I have three blogs…long long day…

I know progression is good but I still believe that you need some sort of ..well useful one!

I am yet to have gotten my head around the seemingly endless roundabout of changes already..this does not make it easier to use..and has clearly not made mobile phone access easier either as on my mobile it is even worse…
Other blog platforms I follow do not seem to complain of these issues as much..note I said as much ..not never.
I have been tossing up about getting a paid WP site but have to be honest the time I spend going around in circles trying to manage the changes here has me less inclined to want to pay for the joy of frustration.

So I have given up..i had to stop all email notifications as my inbox even though emptied regularly had some 10,000 emails in there..deleted twice and still blocking it up..so I cannot rely on that as a means of checking notifications due to the email issues that also have not been rectified by the appropriate people..seems they are mystififed..

I have just about had technology and it’s mandated irritants and irks..
I need a functional prompt accurate and easy to navigate service..i have 11 acres of harsh land to deal with a house and family and not exactly time to throw to the breeze for stuffing around.

I am sick of services updating and outsmarting themselves..much like Windows 8 the greatest dud I know..if it ain’t broke don’t fix it…or at least listen to what people say when they tell you it is rubbish..if you are a new blogger then you have no expectations but some of the older bloggers and the bloggers with more than one site will say they are less than pleased..

So I apologise to those I have not replied to..and to those that disappear from my reader..i am trying really I am.

Your comments are important to me and I do love to visit your blogs..it may just be that you are somewhere in an update..hanging around ..waiting…possibly for another update…who knows, seems we are the last to find out until some nifty looking yet impractical thing pops up…so BEEP BEEP BOOP….

Yes WP you have inspired me to go outside in the fresh air..where the only update is that my tomatoes have started to change colour….
