Virtual Friends ๐Ÿ˜ž

Throughout the day while doing my chores and errands
I thought about this morning’s discovery on my WP app.

Previous to the discovery I was replying to comments from
my notification section.

I accessed a post written and published yesterday via a
different path and found the text one huge square void
of paragraphs, sentence following sentence.

This of course was a bit disturbing to me,ย so I checked
other pathways to the post and how it appeared when
transferred elsewhere.

Fine in the Reader, a little different on actual site but
not too bothersome so I continued with the seek ‘n find
search leaving the app on the cell phone for last.

All was fine there, and I could breathe a sigh of relief. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I don’t use the phone that much to read posts, etc. and
today I decided to peer around andย familiarize myself
more with the app.

I came across a section ‘a followers list’ with each person
who follows me listed and the date in number of days,
months ending with the year they hopped onboard this
gal’s blogging followers’ ship.

I failed to see a friend’s name on this list, a blogger
whose prompts I’ve participated in on a frequent basis.
I double-checked and ‘no’ the name was nowhere to be
found.

What a disappointment for me. I don’t know what to think
or if I should question said individual.

To hide behind a masque is something I expect on social
media apps, not on a blogging site.

As I end this post,ย I shall leave you with a quote I heard
from an Instagram reel:

“Unfortunately, some people will learn to appreciate you
by losing you. Go where you are celebrated, not tolerated.

If people treat you like an option, leave them like a choice.
You are worth being loved and valued.”

I made the decision to refrain from prompt challenges in
the future and concentrate on my own project(s).

There were numerous bloggers on the list whom I don’t
follow at this time and I shall make time to check out
those blogs to see what we may have in common.

I have no idea if this is some crazy error or a reality
check on here for me.

  1. Itโ€™s probably a WP glitch. Many times Iโ€™ve found the people I have followed for a long time have been automatically un-followed by the WP by itself and I have to find and follow them again.

      1. I can relate.
        I should do a vent post on how one’s posts change in format when synched within WP or shared elsewhere.
        Months ago I deactivated my writing page over at FB. It was disappointing to see the
        big IMO “blob of words/sentences’ void of
        paragraphs.
        I had to post a notation to read it thru my
        hyperlink.
        This, along with continually being pestered to purchase ads to gain more followers, was an
        absolute source of frustration.

        My experience connecting WP to FB and Twitter did little for me in the writers’ community.
        I did much better on both platforms with my crafts.
        Example: Each Friday over at Twitter I used to participate in a scheduled fabric chat (non-existent now).

      3. I feel that these platforms can be useful if we use them properly and invest our time and skill. I donโ€™t have the inclination to do so but I admire those who do.
