I Know… You Warned Me!


I know, I know, you warned me again and again about the Block Editor that WordPress has insisted upon us using. That it was coming. That there were tutorials & how-tos. That I should practice with it.

No, I don’t want to be told ‘how easy’ the Block Editor is. I’m mad, dammit! And I want to stay that way! 🙂
