I wasn’t able to get to my computer yesterday to write my Hello, Friday! blog post, so I asked myself, “Shall I choose to skip today, which would be the first day I’ve missed blogging since January 1st (which is a personal goal I set), or shall I choose to write a quick post via the Jetpack App on my phone?”
(This is awkward, I know. It is stream of consciousness, after all.)
I went with the wrong decision. I wrote a quickie post via Jetpack App on my phone.
Today, when I checked, the App told me that it didn’t, in fact, publish my post yesterday. This is a bald faced App lie.
I saw it in my Jetpack notifications that it posted. To make this even more frustrating, I was instructed to Update this Draft post because it was, indeed, NOW not published.
I’ve posted via the App a couple of times previously, and I had the same rotten experience. You’d think I would have learned.
This is how I feel about Jetpack:
I have finally learned from this frustrating lesson. Henceforth, I choose NOT to succumb to the Jetpack app to write a blog post ever again, even if that means I break my blogging streak this year. By my calculations, I have 120 days to go to meet my goal. Come January 1st, I will reassess.
