Problem in chair – not in computer (picnic)?

Bad hair day!

These last few weeks I’ve found the WordPress blogs a bit challenging. Today I set some time aside to explore whether it was me (picnic ūüôā ) or whether I wasn’t getting updates or if there is some other problem. It¬†feels like the¬†rate of change this year has been exponential. Until recently I felt like I was on top of it all.

So I went to the WordPress¬†Forums to see what I could find out. I wanted to know if¬†I really have to log on everytime I want to ‘like’ or leave a comment. I don’t mind doing that if I have plenty of time but when time is short I decide not to and that’s a shame.¬†I followed a link that recommended I update my¬† browser – why, I don’t know! I am not a technical person.

OK – ¬†I downloaded Internet Explorer 9. Easy! Then I get a message that my¬†printer is not compatible with IE9¬†and was directed to the Canon Website to update the driver for my printer. I couldn’t find the driver for my model. At this point I decided to bail out before I dug myself a hole too big to get out of. I decided to do my first ever system restore (it worked!)¬†and returned to where I started out.

I think WordPress is one of the best things I found on the internet but I really do miss the daily post suggestions and easy access to a lot of blogs. It all had something of a rhythm about it Рit was predictable and easily followed.

My other grumble is about the screen going haywire when I am about to upload my post. I had trouble with the layout of the “related posts” and haven’t been able to include them lately. I am also having problems with suggested photos to include – there aren’t any ūüė¶

So, the big question – is it me who is the problem or is it WordPress spinning out of control (well, maybe that is a bit dramatic ūüôā ) Has anyone else encountered problems lately?

Cheers
