WordPress used to be an easy platform to use to build websites and blogs.
I don’t think that’s the case anymore.
Especially for absolute beginners. The learning curve is steeper than ever before and there are hundreds of tools and addons fighting for your attention.
However, once you understand how it works, it is a tremendously versatile platform that lets you create amazing websites and blogs for yourself, or if you’re a designer or developer, for your clients.
In recent years, the editing interface of WordPress has changed a lot. It’s adopted a more intuitive way of adding elements to a page or a post. It’s now more of a website builder than a blogging platform. That’s because it had to keep up with its competitors like Wix and WordPress plugins like Elementor.
The new WordPress block building interface, which is called Gutenberg, is still developing. With each new version of WordPress comes an updated version of Gutenberg, which is a good thing and a bad thing.
It’s great for users like you and me, because our options get better with each iteration. But it’s a bad thing for tutorial creators as processes change all the time. For this reason, you won’t find many tutorials on the Gutenberg editor on here.
Instead, I focus on the bigger picture. The themes, plugins and addons you can use to make your site(s) better. Besides that, I’ve written hundreds of WordPress tutorials over the years and the traffic that comes to those tutorials just doesn’t warrant the time spent on them.
I might change my mind over time, but if you do need help with the using the WordPress block builder interface, I’m happy to provide one to one tutorial over a video call on face to face in a public place.
