Hugh's Views & News  

Thank you to Donna Connolly, who blogs at Retirement Reflections, for asking me a question about blogging after reading my recent blog post ‘Do You Have A Question About Blogging…’

Here’s Donna’s question in full.

#bloggingtips #blogging #Gutenberg #GutenbergEditor

Yes, I’m using the Gutenberg editor, Donna. I’ve written this post using it.

I’ve read more blog posts complaining about the new Gutenberg Editor than those that give it any praise or credit. I found that to be of great shame, given some of the circumstances surrounding the reviews it’s been getting.

Many of those who complained about Gutenberg hadn’t even attempted using it. They’d ended up getting to it by mistake; many panicking as soon as they saw what was in front of them on the screen.

  2. I’ve been using it for a while. No love affair, nor do I expect there will be one, but I’ve found a few workarounds that make it tolerable, LOL. I’m off to check out Hugh’s post!

  4. I’ve been putting off using it. Maybe it’s time. Hugh makes it sound doable. When I hear blocks, I think of Mailchimp because I use blocks there. Gutenberg sounds like its big brother with more bells and whistles. (Or no comparison?)

  5. I do hate it. I dislike change but forced myself to spend about a month trying Gutenberg. I finally got the plug-in to send me back to classic. I will say, Hugh has some great suggestions. I might retry it, when I have a few spare nerves.
