… a host of other things that I’ll discuss later. Just BEAR with me okay?
It was with a lot of trepidation that I decided to tread into Gutenberg, the much-ballyhooed new editor for WordPress, though, if I’d have had my druthers, I would have stayed in “Classic Editor” forever, BECAUSE why confuse my BRAIN with just a BIT more, especially as I must embark on another adventure: Windows 10 at work this week, i.e., a new Windows 10 laptop for home, desktop at work and a BRAND-spankin’ new accounting program … sigh … much BRAIN-drain is on the horizon for this writer. I’m kicking myself in the BUTT since I still haven’t learned how to use my camera with the manual settings, a task that was on my Winter BUCKET list of new things to
try, er … learn, er … master, … ya master (right) during the long, cold and snowy Winter season.
So, I mused over my coffee this morning, while muttering about all that rain and no walk, then I confronted myself. I said “Self – why do you always procrastinate on learning new stuff? Do you just resist change or is your BRAIN getting lazy? Or BOTH?”
BABY steps I tell ya …
So, I drained that coffee cup, ate some oatmeal, ruminated some more and came online to visit with all of you and check in at work (crossing my fingers everything went okay after the new server install yesterday). I meandered through social media, and whew … where did the morning go? (The fact that I slept in much later might have had something to do with that.)
I decided to eat lunch. Fortified with Tostitos dipped in medium salsa, a roast beef sandwich on marble bread and a cookie or two (okay three … and a half), I came here to WordPress to embark on learning the Gutenberg Editor. By the way, the goodies are not my usual fare, but once in a BLUE moon I throw caution to the wind and have goodies since I eat way too BLAH and BORING most of the time.
So, how did I fare?
Well, it’s very different and I really wasn’t all that adventuresome – you see one picture only and the “undo” button was my friend. Right now, I’m saving my draft fiendishly, lest a pinky finger should hit a stray key and wipe out the entire post. To be on the safe side, I set the “publish” date to April 30th just in case I launched it prematurely. So, who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
What a BUMMER that I had no photo of Parker sitting at a computer, so this is a squirrel-free post, but I’ll work on getting that image for the next WordPress upgrade, okay?
