We’ve been good friends for almost 5 years now, and quite honestly, I’ve put up with your occasional glitches because that’s what friends do. I tried to find them endearing, thinking you had character and did things your way.
So you can imagine how excited I was this morning when I found this little note you had left me during my sleep, simply saying something like ”All of your blogs have been switched to the Block Editor now… Enjoy!!”
I’ll tell you, there’s nothing just like getting a new, unwanted editor shoved down your throat to start the day. I thought about writing you a quick ”Thank you” note as soon as I got the news, but I had to skip my way to work first.
Now that my shift is over, I should be doing the same old thing as usual, which is laying down a few thoughts on virtual paper, without having to think much about anything else. Guess what? I’ve spent the last hour looking for options that used to be right where they’ve always been. Exciting, I know…
You wanted to change my blogging life? Well done!! Of course, after some time switching from block (grrr) to classic (still block) and back by mistake, I’m now using the simplest option available. I appreciate that you added buttons I am scared of trying (who knows what I could f*ck up?). I am also grateful that you hid options I used to use daily. Who doesn’t enjoy a nice game of ”Where’s Waldo”, right??
I know, I know… I could get my good old classic editor back, if I had a money-tree, and was in the mood to pay you more dough (because, yeah, I am already paying to have my little lair in the Bloggosphere). When you think about it, it’s brilliant, really! Making people pay for the cheapest editor while forcing everyone else to use an over-complicated version fit for people who are into making their blogs tha super fancy shiat!
Your timing is perfect too. With covid-19 keeping a large number of us home, an extra challenge was probably the little something we needed not to get bored. It wasn’t quite enough that we have to learn to keep businesses running, with minimal resources at home. And having people ignoring you, just because you can’t walk to their office and ask them why they won’t answer the f*ckin’ phone??
And I have to say… You have balls!! It takes some guts to go against what so many people think. Because it’s not as if it came as a surprise that many of our community didn’t want to switch to your evil block editor… Who cares if some people are too stubborn to fit the mold, right? You sure showed them the way out, and made it really clear that people pleasing was not one of your priorities. Go you, for standing your ground!
I wish I could say I am happy about all this tonight, but you don’t really care anyway, do you?
Now, please take a break. I doubt people like me could take much more blogging experience improvement, for now.
P.S. I know you are not big on listening to people, as of lately. So I guess that second degree humor is not your thing either… Just to make it clear, this post was sarcastic.
