The Bubble has Burst

Last week I wrote about the magic of bubbles. Apparently, thanks to WordPress, the bubble has burst. And why, we don’t know. Is this being done for financial reasons? Staffing problems? Is the bottom line hurting and something had to give?

I fully understand that change exists in any organization, that is key to doing business. But the explanation given is nothing more than a white-wash. It simply does not ring true. Very disappointed and angry.

Nevertheless, I am not going away. I have made too many friends, fellow bloggers; and I have benefitted from that relationship. I have learned from them, laughed, smiled and cried. To give all this up now would be too much of a let down, both within the blogging community and to myself. At nearly 75, I have much yet to learn and much to share.

I am sure someone out there will pick up the banner and run with it. I am not sure just where this will transition to, but I look forward eagerly to whatever may appear on the horizon.

As far as my favourite pictures are concerned, I think in keeping with my feelings about this whole sell-off, I think the picture chosen expresses just what I think of this fiasco. Cheers.

    Try this site. She has a list, top upper right side of the page, of challenges by various bloggers. It is broken out by categories:
    Writing, Photo, Music. So far 33 in total. Cheers.

      WordPress announced that they were no longer posting the photo challenge or the word of the day. Cheers.

    Yes, I agree. I was just disappointed at first, but the way it was done was, to put it mildly, not transparent. However, it ain’t going to change anything. I know there are other bloggers out there running photo challenges, and I’m looking at the ones I can find, and will share what I find. The blogging community will rise above this setback!
