Classic WordPress v Gutenberg Block Editors

It’s all in the name ‘classic’ classic infers something that worked- that’s quintessential and time honoured but now we’re moving on: classic is dead Z classic is dead. Make way for the BLOCK! Even the name sounds ridiculous.

Why? Block is not user friendly-it’s too demanding, too confusing, too all over the place- irregular and anomalous.

At least the choice is still there but it’s constantly demanding use BLOCK. No I won’t!

STOP WORDPRESS.

Sometimes you wonder is it that software developers are sitting there navel gazing wondering is there anything to do?  I know let’s make some changes. And changes are good if they are done for the right reason-not just change for changes sake.

I know says dev we are WordPress mo’k?  Then Gutenberg the first press- yaw- that’s it we’ll make it like a book shape and on and on and they get all carried away.

Classic works- it is easy to follow-you don’t have to move things around. You want to write a story just write on a page like it is word doc and write.

You want to add media well no problem: press the add media or + and there you have it. But with block it is so tedious and mind numbing and super unfriendly- it must have been a bad pizza day when they came up with that block head idea.

Creating a YouTube Channel

Reading although it is good for leisure and thorough immersion and verisimilitude nothing can beat that feeling but today people prefer a visual aspect to knowing and learning.

Having a YouTube Channel is recommended. When learning or any kind of information is presented in video format people pay attention. The key if you are going to present is to be yourself.

Yes you can dress it up with lighting and backgrounds, audio and good camera’s knowing your subject and being passionate in a way that others enjoy and listen: then you will have hooked a following.

Remember it involves commitment and one video will not make any difference you have to be prepared to hand your life over to the virtual world.

The constancy is not for everyone although if you have a subject or image to you want to tell others a hint or advice you can’t go wrong with YouTube.
