Blogging Insights — Change

For this week’s edition of Blogging Insights, Dr. Tanya want to know about change. She asks…

How comfortable are you with change?

That depends upon the context. Are we talking about life, or specifically about blogging? I’m going to assume that, since the title of this series is “Blogging Insights,” I should focus on the latter.

Generally I’m okay with change, except when it’s change for the sake of change and especially when it’s not change for the better. And WordPress met both of those negative criteria when it introduced its block editor and then essentially forced us to “shit or get off the pot” by “decommissioning” its classic editor.

But even though I’ve spent the last year vocally resisting the change to the block editor, I am writing this post using the block editor. I’m still not happy about having to succumb to that change, but in the immortal words of J.E. Lawrence, who, in The Nebraska State Journal, when describing the difficulty faced during frontier-era life in Nebraska, wrote, “It is what it is.”

How often do you like to change your blogging style or the topics or format of your blog?

Since I started this blog almost four years ago, not much has changed. My style of writing is essentially the same and I’m using the same template (theme) for my blog. The only meaningful change to my blog over the past four years is that I now host a small number of prompts that are intended to tickle the imaginations and stimulate the creativity of other bloggers.

Of course, being as open to change as the next guy, if anyone would like to suggest changes to my blogging style or my blog’s appearance, let me hear from you.

    I don’t think you need to change anything in your blog or your style

    If the change is a pleasant one I would welcome it too.
    Unfortunately, the block editor is a change for the worst.

    Your blog is a great mix of serious and humorous.
