There is something on WordPress.com that really stinks. You can label this “sour grapes” or anything else you want to call it. But this is how I see it. Fresh Pressed on WordPress.com is bogus and a tremendous dis-service to wordpress patrons and/or writers. In other words, on a scale of one to ten, you get a “D.”
Figure that one out.
This morning I am waltzing around, so I go over to the readers’ section and do a number on that, and then I check out “Fresh Pressed.” The Readers Section is a breath of fresh air, it is a good choice on almost any given day. Most everything you read there is “followed material” or people you have read before. Fresh Pressed is where you go to see what is new and who the up and comers are … or where they are supposed to be anyway.
Unfortunately, on a lot of days they are not there and it is just a load of crap.
Fresh pressed on WordPress.com, is so not worthy of anyone’s attention … Why anyone would aspire to be associated with it or even want to be chosen to be listed there is really beyond me. In my case it would behoove me to just skip Fresh Pressed, I have enough irritants in my life, I don’t need Fresh Pressed to round it all off.
Today there is a post on Fresh Pressed listed there as “Comic Belief”
I made the choice of going to check it out, under the assumption that something slightly humorous or funny, might be found there. What I found was a “One post blog.” Period. Comic Belief (the one and only post) is the entire blog and archive. So out of curiosity I checked the about box, to find out what this was all about, here is what I found. About: This is an example of a page. Unlike posts, which are displayed on your blog’s front page in the order they’re published, pages are better suited for more timeless content that you want to be easily accessible, like your About or Contact information. Click the Edit link to make changes to this page or add another page.
Here is the pathetic part of all this … 350+ people checked they liked it.
Seriously, this is “Fresh Pressed?” This is the elusive carrot at the end of the string, that every blogger hopes to achieve, this little gem in the WordPress.com vault that everyone wants to latch onto for just a day … any day? Fresh Pressed is a total waste of time. No reflection on WordPress.com staff or any of that, but if this is the best you got … Well, it is time for a new look or some other kind of gambit for your reader/patrons. A “one post site” is worthy of this Fresh Pressed distinction … C’mon.
Give me a break.
Hell, Give ALL of us a break.
