From Little Things Big Things Grow

This is the best and most persuasive argument for WordPress continuing the Daily Prompt that I have seen. I want to thank Tracy at Reflections of an Untidy Mind for caring enough to take the time to write it.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    The problem, as I see it, is that The Daily Post had been there for seven years, building a community and network. There was no real explanation for the decision to close it. It is their right to leave and close up shop though, mind you. With as much as they have been pushing Discover and Longreads, and it does seem like they have been pushing it more and more, is that The Daily Post had more followers than Discover. It was more popular because it provided that community approach. I don’t like Discover, never have. What they “promote” is quite often so far outside of even my reading area (which is as wide as a football field) that it is not even worth my time using it. Even though they denied it, the fact that it was going strong in 2017 and early 2018 until GDPR went into full effect does lead to the assumption, it was easier to close than enact more privacy features. However, that being said, it could also be more along the lines that there has been a fallout within the group running the site. As a former viewer of Minecraft videos (because my son used love watching them and would force me) I have seen more than one group appear to be unified in an approach, only to have it collapse the next month. It happens. It will be sad to see the community aspect close, but I am sure we will find another alternative soon. Making the site is not the difficult part…it is bringing the community back together that would be hard.
