WPC: Gone

It’s both weird and sad that there’s no Weekly Photo Challenge this week. While a lot of people have posted comments and questions, WordPress has failed to give a clear, transparent reason behind the decision. It’s somewhat disrespectful as their bloggers have made the company successful and are intelligent enough to understand a complete response.

 

It’s a very poor customer service move.

They’re sure giving Wix, Blogger, Weebly and others an opportunity.

So WordPress is ending this fun, community-building, delightful challenge. They haven’t given a reason why, which is disappointing. I loved getting a new theme to inspire me and to get a chance to see how others had responded. I connected with other bloggers and I’ll sorely missed that.

It makes sense if an individual’s life changes and they must end a weekly challenge, but WordPress is a viable, successful company. If they want to hire me to handle this, I’m game. It wouldn’t be pricey.

Perhaps an individual with loads of followers will fill the gap, but it’s a commitment. I’ll follow if someone does.

I’ll be in shock for quite a while. What a shame WP. You didn’t have to go this route.
How sad.

I hope that this is like the “New Coke” fiasco and that they do resume this challenge. Again, I’d be happy to freelance as their new WPC Creator.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
