I’m not entirely sure why they call it “the old college try” or if it will work for me, since I’ve been out of college for five decades. That said, I’m composing this post on my iPhone using the Block editor.
I am not a total luddite or troglodyte or whatever term is used to describe someone who is technologically ignorant. As a matter of fact, when I was still working, I was a “solutions consultant” for a software and services company and I considered myself to be rather technologically competent. But I retired four years ago and now I must be technologically brain dead because this whole Block editor has me totally flummoxed.
But here I am, after saying that I was going to throw in the towel in this post, attempting to use the Block editor to write and publish a post. That’s because, since I published that post a few hours ago, a lot of you have called me a pussy and some of you have insisted that it just takes patience and perseverance to make it work. “Don’t give up,” one blogger commented. “Don’t let the bastards win,” another blogger advised.
So this old dog has been sufficiently motivated (or intimidated?) to learn a new trick. Now all I need to do is figure out how to add a category, a few tags, save the stuff, preview it, and publish it.
Wish me luck.
