Deja Vu..?

I’ve been neglecting my blogs (and phlog) these past few months.  What can I say?  I’m a busy guy with a full-time job, social life, and a family!  Having said that, I was sufficiently bored enough this afternoon to update Archaic Online and make sure WordPress and plugins were up to date.

Right after logging in, I was confronted with Gutenberg, the upcoming new WordPress editor.  While I preferred the old editor (which is still available), I thought I’d give Gutenberg a shot.

The Block concept looks familiar, Tripod used a similar system called Zeeblio or something… which I absolutely hated.

I disliked the clunky interface of Zeeblio so much, I went back to hand-coding static web pages in a text editor, which eventually turned me off web design altogether.  Which isn’t really a bad thing, per se… it led me to start my gopher site on SDF and in turn publishing a regular phlog!

So, how does Gutenberg compare, you may ask?

I hear you ask.  I usually hate change, but so far, I don’t hate this.  It’s easy to use, I don’t have to insert a new Paragraph Block when I start a new paragraph, and I like the unobtrusive style bar that only pops up when I need it.  I won’t switch back to the Classic Editor just yet, I’d like to see what I can make Gutenberg do.
