This is a trail in the back of my property.  Old wooden deck steps are a place where the squirrels like to play.

Goodbye Daily Post

Daily Prompt:  Retrospective

The day has come to say goodbye to the Daily Post. It was inevitable. In todays world, the bottom line to everything is the almighty dollar. Let’s face it, the Daily Post wasn’t making any money for WordPress. They looked at it as a gift for joining the blogosphere through them. So, even though many of us who pay for a blog site are unhappy with their decision, they made this change anyway.

WordPress has begun the process of having a site which only caters to businesses. The Daily Post staff can now concentrate on more business driven products. Don’t misunderstand me, I realize that they are in business to make money. But if bloggers leave how does that improve the bottom line? Isn’t word of mouth recommendation from happy bloggers valuable too?

I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress because I liked the community-based challenges.  The Daily Prompt especially gave me a way to unlock my writing potential. I have met many wonderful bloggers here and I am sure we will carry on without the Daily Post.  But it is a shame we have to.   I am sorry to see the Daily Post go into the ranks of not worth the time, money, or effort.

Bright colored buildings bask in the wakening sun, a new day has arrived.
Serenity fills me as I get lost in the beauty as I walk toward the sunrise. I am thankful for this day’s wondrous potential, excited to see the gifts that it brings.
