Yesterday when I started a new draft post, these shadow words appeared:
“Share five things you’re good at.”
“Who are you?” I thought to myself. “And what are you doing on my blog??”
Definitely creepy. I ignored it and went on, saving the draft.
Today I started another post and the shadow asked me this:
“Do you have a favorite place you have visited? Where is it?”
Too weird for me – queue the Twilight Zone music!
Is this happening to anyone else or have I been infiltrated??
Okay, so there used to be WordPress sponsored Prompts and Challenges, both daily and weekly that you could participate in. And I did. Here’s one from five years ago and my resulting post. Prompt was: Cheeky
I must admit that ‘cheeky’ is not a word I use (does anyone?) Still, for this week’s photo challenge, I give you the always adorable, and oft times cheeky, Benji.
Simple enough. Respond to post, insert their link, be featured in the photo grid.
But this seems a bit more intrusive. In fact, I’m hoping the shadowy words really are nothing more than WordPress resurrecting its prompts. (Wouldn’t it be nice if they warned you?)
So if it’s you, WordPress, it worked this time, though not as you might have imagined.
And if it’s not you, I have bigger blogging problems and need to log a case.
How about the rest of you?
