May 2018 Recap

Like I’m sure most other bloggers do, I drafted this post awhile ago, to finish editing closer to the posting date. However, as I tried to add pictures I’m having a lot of problems with WordPress. Once a picture is added, it will not let me edit it. I can not select the picture to re-size it and whenever I try to click on it, the whole page shifts up or down. Am I the only one this is happening to? I’m also having issues with Goodreads. I finished a book and marked it as read, but it would not let me enter a Finish date, which means it doesn’t update my reading challenge. Again, is this just me? I’m so frustrated right now. Sorry this post looks like crap.

  1. Some day I will read as many books as you do in a month. Lol. That was a good month! I haven’t been having issues with WordPress, but if I try to update a book on the Goodreads app on my phone, it won’t always mark a completed date. I have to go in and act like I’m doing a review even if I’m not, and then it’ll update it correctly.

    • I’m pretty happy with how many books I knocked out this month! I’ve tried every conceivable way to mark a finish date on Good Reads, but NONE of them work. Going in to write a review is how I normally do it, but it did not work. The picture stuff on WordPress is driving me insane. Like, I basically can’t add pictures now unless I don’t try to edit it’s position or size. I know it’s an overreaction, but I am so frustrated I’m ready to just quit blogging. 😦

  2. I’m also at 68 in my GR challenge! ha…twinning And yes, I’m having issues with GR and my shelf. Sometimes I can’t find a book I’ve read and reviewed. Very frustrating. Not having that WP issue though.

    • Haha we are crushing it! Although my Good Reads only says 67 because it won’t let me mark an end date on the last book I finished. I’m so frustrated by it! And WordPress is driving me crazy. It’s like I’m the only person it’s happening to and it makes me just not want to do any more posts.

      • There’s a wordpress hotline button? Where do I find that? I did finally find a support forum to post the question (am I the only one who finds it really difficult to find that space???). I checked back on it this morning and it basically said “re-ask your question at this site instead”. So I just re-posted it so *fingers crossed*. I’m so frustrated, though! Good thing I already have several posts drafted from before this problem started.

  3. You had a good reading month! I’m sorry you’re having problems with wordpress. I never had that problem but it did create some other problems to me. Yeah, Goodreads sometimes does that, I enter finish date at the edit review page.

    • Thanks! I seem to be the only person this picture thing is happening to in WordPress and it’s really frustrating. Entering the finish date on the review date is what I normally do, but it won’t save it. I’ve tried every other way I could think to try and it still doesn’t work. 😦

  4. I didn’t know about WordPress issues, but I do know that Goodreads has been a problem for many as of late. I hope it all gets resolved soon. I’ve been debating with myself whether or not to buy Listen to Your Heart since I still have her previous novel sitting on my shelf, but I’ve got a B&N coupon in my inbox just sitting there staring at me. Hope you have a wonderful June!

  5. It’s the first time I’m hearing about those technical issues… Hope you find a solution to them soon, if not already. But wow, 15 books in a month! You sure do go through each of them at the speed of light! Hope June will be filled with awesome books for you, Stephanie. Happy reading! 😀

    • I’ve found one other person on a support forum, but the answer was “you’re a .org blog, not .com so please post your questions here>” and I replied saying I’m .com, please help. And then I checked it again today and they said “repost your question here…” so I did and I haven’t gotten a response yet. Anywho, yes I was very happy with how many books I knocked out in May. Doesn’t always happen that way haha. Happy June to you!

  6. I hope your issues with WordPress and Goodreads are solved soon! Goodreads was acting pretty wonky for me as well, but it seems like it’s going better today. *fingers crossed* It looks like you had a wonderful reading month though!
