WHAT’S THE ANSWER? – MADDENING

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/maddening/

***

This was the WP Daily Post topic yesterday. As usual I’m a day behind. The thing is, I have questions, and they are maddening, to me.

I really enjoy blogging on Word Press. I’ve been here for around 3 years, so far, and have been happy with it all. However, I have some questions.

Most of my questions are about how things work on Word Press. I try to find out some information by using the help/support/forums sections on here, but can never find an answer. Sometimes, I’ve writtten my question for someone to answer, but almost never get a reply. I’ve spent hours searching for answers, only to get no results.

Here’s what I’m dealing with this time. Maybe someone out there in the world of WP and blogging can help?

  1. I keep getting a notice on here that my storage for photos (I think) is almost used up. I just have the ‘free’ dot com kind of blog, so now do I have to pay money to continue my blog? What happens if I can’t/don’t want to do this?
  2. Do I have to quit blogging if I run out of space?
  3. Do I just have to stop adding photos to my posts? I thought we were encouraged to add them to all posts, and I do like doing that.
  4. Do I have to start a ‘new’ blog to continue blogging, with more space?
  5. I don’t understand the whole explanations of upgrade for money thing. It mentions domains, premiums, and name changes and I just don’t get it. I don’t want to change anything…just want more space to add photos!
  6. If I delete a bunch of my photos from the WP media library, does that make them disappear from the posts I put them on? I wouldn’t want that to happen. If I delete a bunch of photos, will that free up some space? I just don’t know.
  7. I don’t really know how to start another blog, even though I thought we could have more than one. How does that work? I tried one time, and it wouldn’t let me do it. I don’t want to start another one, though. I like mine just the way it is.

So, you see why all this is so maddening to me? I need some answers and don’t know what to do. Have you ran into this problem, and if so, what did you do? I have lots of blogging to do in 2017, and need to find out soon. 🙂

Thanks for listening/reading! Any help will be appreciated.

MAKE-UP MADNESS

Dear Make-up Companies,

I love to wear make-up. There, I’ve said it, and lots of women would agree with me, I’m sure.

This letter is just a general observation for you all. I’m not singling any specific one of you out, as for myself, I use make-up products from several companies, every day.

My question is…why do you feel you need to discontinue parts of your product line, from time to time? Let’s take, for example, eye-liners. You develop an awesome eye-liner. It sells all across the U.S. and possibly more countries, around the globe. It has sold very well for years. There is loyalty from the consumers of this particular eye-liner.

Then, one day, it is nowhere to be found; no stores have it for sale, anymore.

Why would you cancel a very popular product? Why would you not even give a warning, that it soon would be gone? Is that any way to treat your customers?

We then have to go through a process of finding another eye-liner that we like. We already know whatever we find, won’t be as good as the old one was. What we do, is buy another one from your product line. We try it…reject it. Then, we buy one from another company…try it, reject it. On and on it goes, until we finally settle for one, because, hey…we ‘need’ some eye-liner.

Then, maybe years later, the original company advertises that they have their awesome eye-liner, again. We get all excited that, yay, our old favorite is back. But, we look at the package. It says ‘new and improved formula’. It promises to be everything the old one was, and more.

So, we buy it, try it, and…what a letdown. It’s not that it’s bad, just different, and not in a good way. It has not been improved at all, and it isn’t the old stand-by, either.

I’m sure there will be plenty of buyers of this ‘new’ one, and possibly will become their favorite. They never used the first one, though.

Meanwhile, we are left disappointed with the quality, and regret all the money we’ve wasted, trying different ones. We even do a small rant, in our minds, every time we put on eye-liner, from whichever company we buy it from. You know how it goes…”Why? Just, why did you do it?”

I’d really like an explanation.

Sincerely,

Looking for Answers
