This is getting irritating!
Okay WordPress, I love how you provide an awesome platform for blogging with great themes, phenomenal support and even a mobile app.
The mobile app is extremely helpful. I can blog while on the go and read other blog posts when I’m sitting idle with my phone.
It has some pretty cool features too, but the thing is, it’s doing one insanely irritating thing.
There’s a thing about bloggers and writers in general, they sit with their writing devices, and bleed.
We writers write continuously in a flow, we let our heads melt away in our keyboards and pens.
The next most irritating thing about writing after writer’s block is losing what you wrote because of some weird technicalities and having to write it all over again.
That’s what’s happening with me.
I’m a fifteen year old guy who writes most of his blogs from his phone. This fifteen year old guy also happens to not have a data plan and is mostly writing while on his way to tuition.
The result is that I’ve to constantly save local drafts, which I either publish or save as a draft on the server when I reach home and connect my phone to the WiFi.
The local drafts save automatically whenever I pressed the back button while writing a post.
But they’re not saving now.
I’ve already written a full 1200 word post two times, and both of the times when I tried to save it as a local draft, all that I wrote vanished in thin air.
At first I thought that it was some kind of bug, but then I understood that this had actually become a thing.
Now I’ve just lost faith in the post. I know I might sound like a crybaby, but I swear, write a 1200 word post and then delete it all and write the same thing again, then delete it all again and try to write the same thing all over again.
Writing even this post was difficult because a huge chunk of this post also vanished because of my saving habit.
And I had to write it again.
WordPress, I want you to fix the local draft problem.
The post I was writing was the second instalment of the #BGTB post.
Now that the time to write it has run out, I don’t know what I should do.
I guess I’ll publish the post later as a Non-BGTB post. I hope it’s okay by everybody. Sorry.
I guess that’s it for this post. Have you ever experienced the problem I’m facing right now? How did you solve it? What other problems have you faced in WordPress? Tell me all about it and more in the comments section below.
Till the next one, keep reading!
