I've been putting up posts on WordPress (braintango.me) because idk I guess I'm trying out something old-fashioned.
I feel like I'm rebounding. From a bad breakup.
Full of resent and sadness and looking for something else to occupy my time 😅
But then again, it's been pretty fun posting on WordPress because of all the very developed features.
I'm currently putting together a post that will help you use WordPress like Dayre.
Oh my god, I sound like someone who's dating someone new and wants the new someone to be exactly like their ex someone.
What a recipe for disaster.
But so far I'm loving the new someone's added features.
I update wordpress on my phone and on my computer and it's a breeze cos sometimes I edit photos on my phone and sometimes on the laptop.
If I edit on the phone but wanna type on the laptop, all I got to do is upload the photo onto wordpress's gallery first.
Then open my laptop to insert the photo and start typing.
Vice versa if I start on the laptop first.
Thing is when you have multiple drafts and edits without posting, sometimes you end up publishing an older version of the post after the new one is up,
Essentially deleting all your new progress.
WordPress has a history function that lets you see all the edits you've made to your post! So you can retrieve all the older versions aka milestones!
(People who use Google docs for collaborative editing will know how important trackable histories are!)
But yes, for now, I am happy with what WordPress has to offer.
If you're the less chatty type, I'm sure you would have moved to Steller, which I feel is just like IG?
Bumping a post up after you update
A few of you have mentioned about how your post doesn't get bumped up in the feed when you update which is Sian cos sometimes you edit it 10 years later and the post just gets lost and nobody reads it.
Well, there's a workaround!
You can send your post back to drafts then publish it again so it moves up the feed!
@chenshiqi was saying my posts don't appear when I update so this helps to refresh posts!
You can also choose to only draft > publish after major updates.
For example doing it once every 10 photos instead of uh, bumping it up once every 1 photo which can be uh, annoying 😅
Tags are the new Hashtag
For every post, you're able to click on the tiny wheel (settings) on the post page (on mobile) to add tags.
Technically, if everyone who moved to Dayre tagged ALL their posts with Dayre, we'd be able to find everyone.
And if they also tag dayrebeauty or WordPress beauty (we gotta choose a hashtag) , it will be easy to filter out the posts that are relevant to us again.
Tags are the new Hashtag 😅
Building your reader
Everyone has a reader on their wordpress app, which functions like a feed on Dayre.
Except with more features.
On the reader, you can follow sites and users (same thing la) and search for keywords on WordPress as well.
Here you can see my reader set to showing me all the posts that are tagged Dayre!
A great way to find other dayreans!
By setting up a tags to follow page, you're basically setting up a hashtag page (like Dayre) that's curated by yourself la.
So go ahead and follow all the Taobao or dayrebeauty tags!
Thing is, you won't be able to see what dayreverse trending tags are happening so….that's sad.
But if everyone tags Dayre, then you can more or less see all the posts and sieve out new hashtags!
Ultimately I guess it's still best if Dayre can still continue to be Dayre and we don't have to find a wordpress to become a Dayre but you know what?
It's good to be prepared la right?
Hopefully Dayre stays Dayre!
Stop Throwing Shade
"So disappointed with the EPs who decided to leave"
"Stop spreading negativity"
How about stop throwing shade (lol! I'm throwing shade myself 😂 so childish.) Lucky I'm a 25 year old who self proclaims she behaves like a 13 year old so I can do that shit where I push back when people push me back too.
If you want to sit on this unknown future and pretend the rainbows and butterflies are shining out of your butthole and you're vomitting justice, peace and everything great and kind,
But please don't talk about other people la ok?
Btw, being EP doesn't mean we need to pave the way for a brighter future.
For all I know I was picked because I am a cheapo and loves to Taobao so my only obligation (if any) is to share more cheapo and best deals.
Don't ask me to advocate for anything. Neither should you expect anything from me.
Just like how someone put it, Dayre doesn't owe us anything. And I don't owe you shit. ♥️
I think one of my new year resolutions this year is…
To stop being a social media pushover.
If there's one thing I still regret doing in 2017, it's that I was convinced I should keep my mouth shut in exchange for a pristine online reputation.
Or maybe I should learn how to stand up for myself in the best paggro and cute way like my idol @jojobeans does it. 😊
