As you know, I am quite the idealist. If there is a chance that I can made a positive change in the world, I will take it without a second thought. Providing, of course, that it doesn’t require a lot of effort.
There’s one major thing in the world I’d like to change, and in order to do so, all you’d have to do is comment with your name (or username, whatever) and agree with it. I think if enough people go along with it, we can not just change WordPress, but we could change the fate of the entire universe as well.
Here it goes:
I think the snow feature should be allowed on WordPress blogs throughout the entire winter season, not just during the holidays. I think that once it starts snowing where I live, I should be allowed to put the snow decoration on my blog, and it is snowing outside, right now. Well, technically it’s only half-snowing. It’s like a mix of snow and rain, resulting in what can only be described as ugly slush.
As you may or may not know, WordPress.com allows bloggers to click an option that allows falling snow to appear on their blogs, but it’s only available from December 1st to January 4th, to celebrate the Holidays. This is complete hogwash, if you ask me.
What, so we can only enjoy snow during the holidays? What about people who don’t celebrate the Holidays? I find that quite offensive.
(I’m not actually offended, but I think if I pretend to be it’ll make me more likely to get what I want.)
Besides, February and late January is when it snows the most, at least where I live, and I think the amount of snow falling across the blog should be corresponding to the amount of snow falling outside at the given moment. For example, if there’s a blizzard outside, my blog should have so much snow falling down, in all different directions, that it is almost impossible to read the posts and the site takes hours to load. If there’s just a light flurry, then only a few gentle little snowflakes should be falling down.
I’d argue that those in the southern hemisphere should be allowed to choose the snowflake option during their winter months, but as we all know, people in the southern hemisphere don’t actually exist. That’s just a lie the government wants you to believe, and quite frankly, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to begin with. I mean, how could people live on the bottom of the planet without falling off? Use your heads, people.
As you can see, I am sleep-deprived at the moment and am not making a whole lot of sense, so I don’t think I should be held responsible for what I’ve written in this post. Unless it’s well received.
So, yeah. Sign this petition please, and one day maybe we’ll be able to use the snow-option on our blogs, even if it’s not December.
It’s time for a change, people.
