For almost a year I resisted using the block editor on my WordPress app.
The reason was that when I tried a few trial posts on it, it felt that too much time was being wasted on doing the routine stuff. The layout was new and different from the classic editor and I had to find my way around it from scratch.
Please, also note that I blog exclusively from my WordPress app on my iPhone. So when I was informed by WordPress through an email that very soon the option to use the classic editor would be taken away, I was resigned to the fact that it’d take me a lot of extra time and effort to write my posts.
Well the day finally came and guess what?
It isn’t all that bad. In fact it’s almost the same but different.
It isn’t as difficult as it was when I tried it initially and my guess is that the developers have made some changes. I can’t say how it is for those using a laptop or a Pc to blog, but for me, it’s working well. In fact, there are some things that are easier to do in this editor like well…. editing.
So I withdraw all my objections to the new editor and encourage others to try it too.
