Between this new Gutenberg Editor & the way feminist pages on WordPress are being removed, I may be leaving WordPress for another blogging platform sometime in 2019. I have a lot of followers on WordPress but I don’t need another fight on my hands. I just want to write & publish.
Almost every WordPress.com blogger has no doubt seen that irritating little blue blurb that keeps appearing at the bottom of the editing screen: “A new editor is coming to level up your layout,” followed by a “learn more” offer that you can click on if you really want to learn more. Over in the editor sidebar (where you find your status, post settings, categories and tags, sharing info, etc.) at the bottom is another distracting box offering you to try out the “new editor.”
Not many people like change, especially older folks like me. Those of us who write for a living or just for fun who just want a nice big easy space to write in (like we have with the Classic Editor) don’t want to have to worry about “blocks” and dragging and dropping them around to “build a page.” We just want to write, dammit.
