WordPress mobile app makes me want to bite my phone sometimes. 

Is it just me, or is the WordPress mobile app quirky and unruly? I mean I know that my level of tech savvy is slightly lower than that of a large pile of gravel (I could make a typewriter crash in high school typing class long before computers took over the role of my victim), but my level of frustration with this app seems even higher than my normal level of angst.

The mobile app constantly refuses to obey my spacing commands while drafting a post. Sometimes the draft doesn’t even match the published post, making me think I’ve become delusional, or more delusional than normal.

Sometimes when I hit the little “follow” under a bloggers name, it turns to “following” for one second, and then returns to “follow” . . . . I played this game for ten minutes one time before deciding that it just wasn’t in WordPress’s will for me to follow the particular blog.

The typing of posts seems more glitchy than typing texts or any other typing I do in other apps . . . Or maybe my frustration with the WordPress app causes my thumbs to swell?

And as far as WordPress in general, I originally couldn’t figure out how I could end up with more likes than views on a post. I was then told that when posts are read in the Reader, they do not show up on a hit counter . . . . So what in the actual $?@! is a hit counter for? It’s more like a “some of your hits” counter. I don’t have what I would call a mass following, so I value seeing all those views lost to Reader. Is this some way to cheat people who have ads enabled out of money?

And while I’m in rant mode, why doesn’t WordPress send me a free Tshirt that says, “Born to Blog”, or a coffee mug? Why don’t they file my taxes and scoop up the dog poop in my yard? 

WORDPRESS!!!! WHY DON’T YOU STOP WORLD HUNGER, WAR, AND JUSTIN BIEBER ROASTS????!

. . . . Ok, maybe I’m getting a little carried away. That’s why I tend to avoid ranting posts.

WordPress refuses to obey.

Why on earth will WordPress not let me double space between items on a list? When I construct my draft, I double space between each point on the list, but when I publish, the double spacing is gone. 

When I posted the poem I wrote last week, it was an absolute nightmare trying to get the lines to be spaced the way I wanted them. I would type a line and hit return, but every time I would publish, the lines would be run together. 

What is the secret? What is the password to the WordPress club? Let me in! Tell me the secret knowledge! I promise I won’t reveal the technology to any unworthy bloggers . . . . Oh, poop, maybe I am the unworthy blogger.
