Old Dogs and New Ways for Old Tricks

I want to thank everyone who commented on my little epistle yesterday about our new block editor here on WrodPress.

OK fine, I’ve decided to shut up and figure it out just like everyone else!

You must understand how I came to discover that everything had changed…

I’ve been thinking for quite a while now that I should get back to blogging, but there always seemed to be something else I had to do first, some chore or another, some little “hot item” that got in the way, if you know what I mean. Then early on Sunday morning I was thinking about my day when it occurred to me that I should post my Sunday Sermon Notes like I used to since last Sunday was opening day for our small neighborhood church.

(Yes, it went better than I could have imagined, thank you. More on that later.)

So, I turned on the computer, put the notes together and logged on to WP for the first time since July… Let’s just say that I got quite a shock at 5 in the morning last Sunday, and I was not best pleased.

In truth, now that I have messed around a bit, there are some very nice new features that I might well use in the future, once I realized that the new editor is just a web editor rather than a blog (which of course, is also a website.) As you may know, I have a website that I’ve had  a lot longer than I’ve had this blog, but what I’ve always appreciated about the blog is that it is  (or was) so much easier and quicker to work with, especially for the vision impaired.

Maybe it’s time to rebuild my website!

I’ve used computers on a daily basis for work since 1984 and for the longest time it seemed that the goal of developers was to make their programs, applications, apps, as user-friendly as possible. Yet like so many other things, that time has passed and developers have different priorities; yep, like so many other things, times have changed. The only thing left to do is for this old dog to learn new ways to accomplish his old tricks.

Thanks again for your comments everyone!

  1. Welcome back Don! How’s your book coming along!

  2. Glad your back. You can still use the classic editor as well. I use both, depending on the site.
