Thanks WordPress….do you have any tissues?

7 Comments

My third year anniversary on WordPress is rapidly approaching.  Since my timid foray into blogging, I have truly come into my own and really love this journey I am on.  I have discovered so much about myself and thrown myself into an outlet where I find I can be really honest about my feelings and opinions.

Over the course of my presence here, WordPress has made many changes and upgrades to their program.  The cause for my tears and subsequent request for tissues is the addition of “related posts” at the bottom of our existing posts.  This subtle link at the bottom of my posts has caused me to click on one of my previous posts about my mom and my tears didn’t even have the option of staying or flowing – they started at full force and kept coming.

Once I cleared the blurry vision and was able to control myself, I realized what a great extension to my blog that this little tear-inducing gem had become.  If readers are interested in the blog post that day, they can click on the links to previous posts they may have missed and be able to follow my earlier thought processes that may have some relevance to the entry I had recently posted.

I appreciate that WordPress is bringing my past into my present.  They are connecting the dots of my artistic as well as my emotional journey and allowing others to participate in the history of my blogging adventure as well as the most recent part of my writing experience.

Tissues are available at the door.

  1. 3 years? Congratulations just making it that far! I’m just past my third week and it already feels like I’ve been here forever 🙂 I’m a writer myself, and if you have the time I’d love for you to check out my small blog. Atm its mainly short stories and a bit of poetry, but I’m working on a novel (Prologue is on my blog). Feel free to check it out, keep blogging and have a good day 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your blogging anniversary, and my condolences again on losing your mom. Your blog is one I make a point of reading; whether a post is fun and light or filled with heartache, your writing is very honest. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. We’ve been blogging for around the same time and a lot has happened to us since we began. Condolences again for your mother – it’s was an awful and very distressing time. Sometimes everything reminds us of loss and other times it just hits us out of the blue – big hugs xxx
