Tag Archives: Wordpress Block Editor

A Sad Day for Me and a Big Decision

So, WordPress have carried out their threat to move to the Block Editor. They claim that the Classic Editor is still available and yes it is but several features and functionality have been removed.

I do not like the Block Editor. It is not an improvement. Nothing WordPress ever does is an improvement. I want to write a blog post as though I am writing an article or a diary. A simple word processing tool is what I need to achieve that. I am not trying to create a Web Site, I just want to tell my stories. I don’t want to earn money from my blog.

I am thankful to WordPress for providing me with a free platform to post for eleven years but I do not like the way things are going.

I have managed to put a couple of final posts together but it has been very frustrating and time consuming so I have reached the difficult decision that I will no longer be posting to the WordPress site.

I have enjoyed your company and I will continue to read your posts. I thank you for reading mine, the likes that you have generously given to me and the comments that you have made over the years.

It is going to leave a hole in my life but all good things must come to an end. Kim tells me I spend too much time on it anyway!
