10 years of blogging in a classic WordPress code environment comes to an end, as the new Block Editor takes over.
After having recently celebrated my 10 years WordPress anniversary, it has come as a rather annoying inconvenience that yesterday my daily blogging routine took more time than usual thanks to the older WordPress.com editor being replaced with the WordPress Block Editor.
What this meant was that I spent more time looking for all the buttons and features that I have become accustomed to over the years than doing some actual writing. Despite seeing the advantages of visual editors and making use of some helpful format tools myself, I’m not a big fan of this new thing… just yet.
But I guess it’s all about adjusting, learning about the new writing environment which will hopefully become more efficient and less time-consuming than now. One can still return to the old format for a while, but this is only possible by using plug-ins, which require monthly payment for the website, which I haven’t fallen back on yet. So the only thing I can do is to say goodbye to the old ways and embrace the new ones, in the hope that the transition works as smoothly as possible.
What are your opinions about this new WordPress editor? Do you like it, do you see any advantages? Or are you planning to migrate to another platform entirely? Let me know!
