Loving WordPress Is Not Hard To Do

Loving WordPress Is Not Hard To Do

If I did not like WordPress, I would have left it a long time ago.

WordPress may have its flaws; for example, the occasional technical glitches, but the truth is that no blogging platform is perfect.

Also, I have no regrets about ever setting up a blog on WordPress.

After all, it is a great place to house my blog and express myself via my blog posts (And, I am sure that many of you feel the same way about WordPress).

Our Blog Posts Are Easily Seen By Other Bloggers

One of the nice things is that our blog posts are easily seen; that is made possible via the WordPress.com Reader (They will show up provided that we tag them correctly).

If you are new to WordPress or you are simply someone who has trouble wrapping their mind around what tags are, you should read, Organize Posts with Tags by the WordPress.com Support Team (It will help you to gain a better understanding of tags).

I am yet to come across another blogging platform that allows its users to locate blog posts from other bloggers via tags.

I have to admit that is one of the coolest features that WordPress has (If it were not for tags, our blogs would have been virtual ghost towns).

I would also like to state for the record, that the newly set up blogs on WordPress may give users the impression that their blogs are a virtual ghost town (That might be true in the beginning, but their blogs are going to gain traction as time goes on).

WordPress Has Lots Of Knowledgeable Bloggers

Another thing that I love about WordPress is that it is filled with knowledgable bloggers; people who know how to:

  • Cook and bake.
  • Create wonderful artwork.
  • Teach others about blogging.
  • Educate you about psychology.
  • Help you choose the right Linux distribution for you.
  • Encourage you to exercise and make the right dietary choices.

Now, that, my friend is only a small drop in the proverbial bucket.

If you rummage through the WordPress.com Reader, you will come across lots of other types of blog posts from knowledgeable bloggers.

The WordPress Community Is Amazing

Yes, my friend. The WordPress community is amazing. They support each other by:

  • Reading the blog posts of their fellow bloggers
  • Commenting on the blog posts that they enjoyed.
  • Pressing the Like button on those blog posts that they thought were fantastic.
  • Following those bloggers that inspire them.

Hey, you could not ask for a better blogging community than that.

One of the main reasons for people staying on WordPress.com is because of the amazing community it has (And, any blogger in their right frame of mind is not going to willfully part with that).

WordPress Allows Users The Freedom To Choose Its Web Version Or Its Mobile App Version

If you are like me, you will enjoy using a desktop computer or a laptop computer to create and publish your blog posts.

If you are like some of the younger folks (or like those who are young in heart and spirit), you might prefer to use the WordPress Mobile app to create and publish your blog posts.

For the record, I know how to use both the web and app versions of WordPress (I made up my mind to familiarize myself with the WordPress Mobile app because it will come in very handy the day my laptop computer is down or my home internet is down; I can still utilize the mobile internet to publish a blog post via my smartphone).

Truthfully, the WordPress Mobile app has come a very long way, but that does not mean that I am going to say, “Goodbye,” to blogging on my laptop computer anytime soon.

However, I am utterly grateful that WordPress has made it easy for users to:

  • Publish a blog post via a desktop computer.
  • Publish a blog post via a laptop computer.
  • Publish a blog post via a tablet computer.
  • Publish a blog post via a smartphone.

A person who publishes articles over on Medium told me that the publishing functionality was removed from the Medium app and that it can only be used for reading articles (That is such a waste).

If WordPress were to do that, they would have a large quantity of pissed off bloggers on their hands.

If Someone Is Stupid Enough To Steal Your Content, One Of Your Fellow Bloggers Will Let You Know

Our fellow bloggers are always going on the WordPress.com Reader.

Therefore, if any of them were to notice that another blogger stole your work and published it on their blog, they would notify you via email.

Most WordPress bloggers look out for each other (And, that is one of the things that I truly love about WordPress).

By the way, your fellow bloggers will not be able to come across every piece of content that was stolen from you; which is why you will have to learn how to find them for yourself (Neil Patel’s, Content Scrapers ― How to Find Out Who is Stealing Your Content & What to Do About It, will help you with that).

Final Thoughts

So, do you see the reasons why loving WordPress is not hard to do?

WordPress may have its few flaws here and there, but it is still a great place to blog.

Also, the community on WordPress is one of a kind.

Thank you for reading!

      Dolly has been a regular contributor to “Renard’s World” for some time now.
      Thank you for noticing.

      1. Medium is focusing on paid content. That’s how they care about their publishers and bloggers.

        Some people were kind and genuine like WordPress community.

        Fact: You can find 10+ years old blog on WordPress not on other platforms. That’s why I’m here. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
