Warren Writes

On !

by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

My “Sam I Am Blog” on Word Press became my first and primary blog site. In the past month, there have been some type of unknown cyber glitches that have made it extremely difficult to post an article on the site.

My solution is to post on the sister site at Blogger, “Samuel Warren The Writer.” The Blogger site at blogspot seems to load more quickly and the embedded editor in Blogger seems more resilient and quicker to accept editing changes, Blogger understands you need photos for stories; Word Press, in my experience, always wants to challenge me over every photo I try to use whetHer I run it as a thumbnail or extra large.

I write my articles in Open Office. Once they are written, edited, spell checked and formatted, I copy and paste to Word Press and Blogger.

I love Word Press’ “Tag” over Blogger’s “Label” function; however, in the battle of blog editors – I give Word Press the desk in the basement because it enjoys being the rebel teenager that questions every thought out decision about writing and layout.

My Word Press site does not like already formatted text, Blogger nods and calls to the electronic copy boy to take the copy to the guys and gals in layout.

Logging on to Word Press has become a nightmare. I set up my account in the United States. Then, my wife, Christy, and I moved to the Republic of the Philippines.

Trying to log on to Word Press from Leyte, is like throwing an empty wine bottle with a note in it in the Pacific Ocean and wondering if it will ever wash ashore on a beach in California.

Logging on to Blogger from Leyte is “No Big Deal.” It takes a couple of minutes, but my bamboo pole satellite signal shooter in the yard seems to know the satellite to shoot the signal to.

My Satellite Signal Shooter — The steel and bamboo pole in the yard contains the Bayan Tel gadget that seems to know which satellite to shoot the signal to to allow me to log on to the Internet and make an easy connection with Google’s Blogger. Unfortunately, trying to log on to Word Press from Leyte is like trying to log on to Atlantis. Nikon D 100 Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

I am a FREE subscriber at both sites, so I am sure the customer service computer “geeks” aren’t going to loose any sleep over my concerns and issues to make things simple and keep posting easy.

I like Blogger because when it comes to layout it is easy and quick to change the template – their “widgets work.”

Word Press is “too geeky” because the blog platform is on Word Press.com, which has no plugins. To use plugins, you have to go to Word Press.org to download and install the plugins. I have never been able to get a Word Press.org plugin to work on my Word Press.com blog site.

I have gone to the Word Press layout section and tried their widgets – some times they work on my blog; some times they do not. I have even copied code for widgets and followed the instructions from Word Press.com, Word Press.org and the site with the gadget and I usually end up with garbled code copy on the main page that does nothing other than look ugly and out of place.

I believe I am a smart human. I did not go to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but, you should not have to be an “MIT graduate” to post copy and photos to your Word Press blog.

The day-to-day hassles of trying to post to Word Press has convinced me to make my “Samuel Warren The Writer” blog my primary publication, while her sister blog the “Sam I Am Blog” remains on comatose life support in Word Press cyberspace.

All Things Considered, in the immediate future, I will keeping checking my “Sam I Am Blog” for comments because I love to hear from cyber surfers and my readers. My literary hospital visits will be to check for comments because until Word Press transplants a working blog system or initiates the birth of a reliable, easy, fun, system it makes no sense to endure the frustrating pain and suffering of geekitis just to post an article and photos to a daily blog.

Thus, for the immediate future, “Samuel Warren The Writer” will become my “Hot Off The Presses ! Page One !” blog.

    • McCahan,

      I visited your site “sexdate.” Good Luck with your business. I was a young man in the United States in the 1970s. Video cameras were suppose to revolutinize the whole “dating” procedure. It didn’t.Video-dating began and the companies took off. The Internet was suppose to revolutinize “dating” it didn’t. Technology is great because it makes it “easier to meet people,” but at the end of the day, the “dating” issue probably hasn’t changed since the days of Adam and Eve because “Human Nature” if it changes at all changes slowly.

      Thus, despite technology, every generation, when it comes to “dating” goes back to Human Nature Square One as in “dating” means you still have to “meet people” and figure out if there is any type of relationship that is going to go somewhere. Best of luck on your website.

      Thank you for the compliment.

    • Microgynon,

      In the old days of computers, it really seemed simple. The little electronic bits use the tweaked software to hum out over the 300 baud analog telephone modem lines and sooner or later you might connect to a BBS that connected to the Internet at large.

      Despite the new pretty technology, all the fancy logoes, and the flashy bells and whistles of spanking brand new computers and the gadgety software – it still seems like the same old “hurry up and wait” electronic signal game that has been more complicated to make it seem more impressive.

      Whatever happen to the old human nature syndrome of “Keep It Simple.” 🙂

      Sam

  6. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
    know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get
    the problem resolved soon. Kudos – SEO.
