Is it me or is WP glitchy today? I only had a second to post this morning, so I copied and pasted an old article. OK, lazy, I know. Worse, this is third time I’ve reused this post. Oh well. Anyway, a bit over an hour later and no hits, I was browsing the Reader and noticed my post wasn’t there. Mystery solved, I didn’t post it.
I went to my page and it was there, so I did post it. I made and saved changes. Still not in the feed. And then I remembered, a few times in the past I had to change the Category and save it for it show up in the feed. Don’t ask me why, but if I’m forced to use the new and improved editor (i.e., when I use my work computer) this happens at least 1/3 of the time, maybe half. OK, so it’s on my feed, the world can see it. Hurrah! Soon people will be rushing in and…
8 hours after fixing it and 4 views, 4 likes later and, well, it seems like crickets to me. Yet in that same time period other posts have been getting normal numbers of views, maybe even more than usual. OK, the new post is a rerun, so people are avoiding it. Or is that the problem?
The funny thing is, my stats have been doing so much better the last two months. All of them. So it feels weird to complain. And over all, I’m not really complaining too much because today’s numbers overall aren’t bad, just this one post. I just have this odd feeling WP is doing something weird.
Has anyone else seen any glitches today?
Edit, 2 minutes after posting – this is my 600th post! woo-who! Isn’t this just the post I wanted for number 600? ;)
