We all need friends while we’re in Covid isolation and according to WordPress, Block is my new best friend.
Meet your new best friends, Blocks
I am pretending this Wednesday is next Wednesday, because by next Wednesday we will have changed to Gutenberg. I am going for a trial run so I thought I had better actually read the email …
Say Hello to the WordPress Block Editor
On June 1 we’ll be retiring our older WordPress.com editor and transitioning to the more recent (and more powerful) WordPress block editor.
…and ‘take the WordPress editor for a spin’
“The web up until this point has been confined to some sort of rectangular screen. But that is not how it’s going to be. Gutenberg has the potential of moving us into the next time.”
What! I like my rectangular screen. Are we going into the fifth dimension? If I am never seen or heard from again, you will know why… or probably not notice I have gone.
I am writing this on a word document, as I usually do with my blogs, then I shall dive into Gutenberg. But first a word about our sponsor from Wikipedia…
Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg was a German goldsmith, inventor, printer, and publisher who introduced printing to Europe with the printing press. His introduction of mechanical movable type printing to Europe started the Printing Revolution.
As far as I can see, he should not be held responsible for whatever is going to happen next…
My blog starts here.
It is hard to believe, but there are people in the world who don’t even read blogs, let alone write them, in fact there are many people who have not heard of blogging and if they had, could be forgiven for thinking the panic induced in some of us by the word BLOCK is of no importance compared to world dramas such as a pandemic.
Many of us don’t know how WordPress worked in the first place, presumably by magic. As no one else in my house or family uses WordPress I must have got here all by myself.
And here I am in a block? I have added colour… shall I try putting in a picture of no relevance?
