Friday Soapbox: Pardon My Mess….

 

Well I just received notice that WordPress.com has decided to retire my theme and I need to pick out a new one asap. How nice of them to make these decisions without consulting me, it is my blog after all. I like my theme and it does not need to be retired. I spent a lot of my time personalizing it and long hours and a few brain cells, not to mention the eye strain learning css so I could customize it. So, what the hell WordPress.com!

Now I have to not only find a new theme but I have to learn css for that theme too. Your really pissing me off WordPress.com and I am not the only one. I stood by you when everyone was talking about Blogger.com and it’s ease of use and compatibility with customizing, as well as all the extras that you still don’t have. Many blogs jumped ship and went to Blogger.com but not me, no I stayed loyal. So this stab in the back hurts and if I hadn’t already paid your fee for using css I would now leave too. Seriously WordPress.com, how would you feel if someone came by your home and said it was outdated and they were going to tear it down, but not to worry because now you could build a new one.

I don’t have as much time as I use to since K came to live with us so this may be a long process folks, please bear with me while I learn and experiment with css and the other themes in WordPress.com. In other words……

    How horrid of them. I know how time intensive it is to start from scratch. When I *won* a year of self-hosting, I thought “Oh $#!%!” But once it was finished, I like it so much better. I still find new plug ins to add and can do so much more than what I could do on .com. Whatever you choose, I’m sure it will be fabulous.
