Ignorance can be bliss in some circumstances. If you were in a relationship and didn't know that your partner was cheating on you, it can in fact be blissful... that is until you find out. And I bet that would hurt like hell.
That's why knowledge is more valuable. When you have knowledge, no matter how negative it is, it is always better to know, and to learn to accept the facts that are placed in front of you rather than not knowing at all with the sheep's wool pulled over you eyes.3

Yes and no.
Not obsessing over negative things is bliss, because you have peace of mind. Ignorance is just a quick path to not obsessing. So I think more accurately bliss can be a symptom of ignorance, but may not necessarily be the cause.
I think of the reverse example. Someone who has anxiety over something that no one else notices. Like if you are self conscious about an obscure body part that literally no one else thinks about or notices. You are both experiencing ignorance and anxiety. Not bliss. You could say, well what if you were ignorant to how you look?
Well... is it that you're ignorant or just that you aren't thinking about it? People use different forms of entertainment to not let their problems bother them. In the moment you will have bliss, but you are far from ignorant. Your problems simply aren't in your mind, because in that moment your life circumstances aren't a problem. They cease to exist so to speak.1
