Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

routine

I care not
for value judgements made
on the colour of my hair
the whiteness of my teeth
or height
of my heels
i would rather
let my art
tell the story
and
be everyman
someone’s child, parent, lover
confidante
muse
safe
and happy
in my anonymity

Not again!

Across the Bored woke up on the right side of the bed, had a pleasant breakfast and accomplished a few chores before getting down to some serious blogging this holiday morning when, once again, our temper was set off by a small but annoying discovery.

WP has seen fit to remove blog names from the new posts in the reader…. has anyone else noticed this or is only our monitor plagued with an appalling lack of identification under the tags and photos?  Is this not just a tad insulting to those who spent some considerable amount of time “Choosing the Perfect Blog Name” or paying good money annually for a dedicated domain?  If we wanted to be anonymous we wouldn’t be blogging, we would live in some remote location with no wi-fi and carve our memoirs onto a log. Days were when we could workaround the dreaded “403 Forbidden” and even put up with unexpected cut-outs and missing posts but this Big Brotheresque move really sucks.

Soon we will just have barcodes….
