The Block Editor In WordPress

Apparently after a year of neglect my old personal site was too far gone to repair.

Having this experiment going to play with the block editor (aka Gutenberg), I decided last night to make this site my main site going forward.

I’m still undecided if I’m going to swamp the domains around. It would probably be a good idea to do so, since my .me has more domain oomph and age.

With all this in mind, I’ve started to like the new editor, but I have also seen that there is quite a bit of a learning curve to it from the old ways of doing things.

Hopefully this adventure on my personal site will make me that much better a WordPress designer/developer.

Stay tuned.

WordPress & WordCamp US 2019

After watching the live stream of WordCamp US this past weekend, I decided to spin up a site and to beta test all the new features coming out in the next few months and year with WordPress.

The block editor is something that I need to get used to and with the coming functionality in the pipeline, it’d be stupid not to try and use WordPress without a page builder.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Elementor plugin, but if there is a way to do what I need without adding bulky plugins than I want to know how.

So, instead of blowing up one of my many other sites, I started SethGoldstein.page as a way to experiment.

Here’s to learning new things and expanding horizons.

Stay tuned.
