What’s the one piece of advice you wish someone had given you a year (or five, or ten…) ago?
A year ago? Don’t trust the happy editors of the daily prompt. They don’t care about you. That would be a good piece of advice. Today’s prompt was published in may 2014, less than year ago. I answered then and my post appears in the grid titled “take it easy”. I joined the daily prompt because it was really fun to write every day about the same topic at the same time with a lot of people around the world with different points of view, and interchange ideas. New ideas every day. I made friends. But suddenly the editors of the daily prompt decided to stop publishing new themes and began to publish old prompts. Day by day the published prompts are more and more recent. Do the editors seriously think that they followers are not staying with them more than a few months? In that case they have little faith in themselves. There are many of us who are coming back every day because this is our point of communication. Our virtual living room. Now the room is cold and uncomfortable and we only stay here because of the people we know. It’s sad.
If I were the one giving a piece of advice, I’d say to WordPress: take care of the Daily Prompt. Don’t mistreat your customers. It’s not good policy. We have had enough.
