Don’t You Love It When…
Isn’t it enough that us non-techies – yeah, you know who you are – have to post to blogs, update websites, get savvy with videos and all that other stuff when all we want to do is write books?
You’d think so, wouldn’t you. But oh no. Those hard-core techies who run all the behind the scenes stuff somehow always see fit to change the process. While it may be good for them, it’s not so good for us.
Take Blogger for example. I run my other site Sweet n Sexy Divas from it. Imagine my surprise when I went there to check on the post of the day and discovered everything had been changed. Not the SNSD blog, of course, but the mechanics on how to post, where to find the posts, how to find my Blogger profile. Dear God, the list was endless.
It took me twenty minutes to figure out how to get to a place I’d gotten to in less than five seconds before. I suspect the techie who developed the new design thought it was far superior to the last one. Maybe for him (or her) but not for me. Why in the hell change it at all? Did it really need an upgrade that made it ten times harder to navigate?
It’s like going to your favorite grocery store, wanting to duck in for a few things, and seeing that everything’s been changed (yep, my grocery store has done that a few times). I guess they figure you have gobs of time to roam up and down aisles, searching for everything. Not me. I grabbed an employee, handed her my shopping list and said, “Write down the aisle everything is on or I’m going to your competitor.”
I absolutely hate it when these things are changed. If the changes were good – fine. But they rarely are. When the new IE came out, I dutifully downloaded it. OMG. What a huge mistake. Once it was loaded, I couldn’t post to WordPress (that’s this blog). I’d key into the field for the post, but none of the words would stick. The preview came up blank. The screen jumped around. Pictures wouldn’t post. My email was totally screwed up. I thought I had a virus.
I went online and described the problem. About a zillion entries came up stating something like “problems with the new IE”. Damn. I did the sensible thing and took it off my computer and downloaded the old version, which fixed the previous problems. I’d learned my lesson. Never again will I download a new IE. Never.
Given all the problems with these ‘improvements’ to IE, I have to wonder if maybe the techies were just making busy work for themselves so they’d have a job.
