Reasons Why Upcoming Changes To Writedge And Daily Two Cents Is Both Good And Bad
Writedge and Daily Two Cents are writing sites (using WordPress.org) where you can post articles and get the chance to earn some passive income. If you write on these 2 sites, then you must have heard about the planned and upcoming changes. In the case of Writedge and Daily Two Cents, this change is both welcome and unwelcome, good and bad. Why is that?
Changes on Writedge and Daily Two Cents
First, what are these changes anyway? The sites in question plan to change their theme to a responsive and mobile-ready one.
This is definitely a welcome change. Nowadays, having a site or blog that is responsive and mobile-friendly is very important since a lot of people use their tablets and phones to access the internet and read stuff online so if your site/blog doesn't cater to these people, then why would they stay on your site, right? They'd have a hard time reading the posts on your blog if it isn't optimized for mobile so they'd prefer to go to sites that make things easier for them.
Appearance of Writedge and Daily Two Cents
So the fact that Daily Two Cents and Writedge are planning to update their theme is wonderful news. Besides, well, what do you think about the current layout of those sites? IMHO, it could really use a lot of improvements. Sometimes, it can even look, well, you know, kind of spammy? Not nice at all? Anyway, it's definitely a good thing that they're planning to change the theme Besides, having a responsive theme is like all the rage these days, ne? LOL.
New theme choices for Writedge and Daily Two Cents
There are three possible theme choices and they're all much, much better compared to the current theme. Of course that doesn't mean that those 3 themes are perfect or something 'cause they're not but that's normal. After all, we have different tastes and opinions, right? After reviewing all three themes, I ended up voting for the third one (the Building A Better Me one) even though it has the annoying infinite scroll feature . It's just that the theme in question looked better overall and I suppose I'm just hoping that the endless scroll can be turned off or something.
So, what's the bad or unwelcome thing about this change?
Well, you see, in the current Writedge and Daily Two Cents theme, there's this box where you can place YouTube URL links. The video then automatically gets added to your post. The 3 new themes do not have or support this video feature, which means that, when the sites change themes, all the posts that use this feature will lose the videos unless the authors move the placement or position of these videos.
That's definitely a hassle, not to mention inconvenient, if you used that video feature a lot. And that's the problem. See, I used said feature on most of my articles on Writedge and Daily Two Cents. So, now I have to go through the process of moving those videos so I don't end up losing them when the sites change themes. This wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have over 200+ posts on each of those sites. Most of those posts have videos.
So, what about you? Do you write on Daily Two Cents and/or Writedge? What do you think about the fact that they're planning to change themes? Which theme did you vote for? Do you also have videos on your posts there? Have you moved them already? I've started but I have a long way to go. Not really looking forward to it. LOL. How 'bout you?
