Dear WordPress (Pt. 2)

Dear WordPress,
Here we are again. I find myself, once again, singing your praises but somewhat confused by your choices.
Let’s talk about this “Blog Post Goals” feature.
After each post, I find myself greeted by a non-descript congratulations about my latest post.
Like before, there’s a word count and a poorly phrased interjection like “Whoopee!” or “Out of sight!”
The only new thing is this little graph that says “Congratulations, you are 2 posts away from your post goal!”
Now, here’s where I get confused.
… what post goal?
I don’t remember setting one, nor do I remember even being asked to set one.
So while I appreciate the enthusiasm and the encouragement, it all rings a bit hollow when WordPress picks an arbitrary number for you… so thanks, but no thanks.
Sincerely,
Calhoun

  1. It’s like in school where those in charge have decided what you are to accomplish? ( did anyone ever listen or care?) And those phrase, sometimes stupid, alway annoying and irritating. You had guts to say it, but great post.

    • Glad you enjoyed reading!
      It does seem slightly ridiculous that there’s this expectation of a certain number of posts being equated with success, right?
