Gud moarnink my dear readers,
I done fucked up. 😦 Yesterday, after long warning – and me pigheadedly ignoring it, WordPress finally made their threat becoming a reality. They indeed rolled out their Blocks Editor, formerly known as Gutenberg Editor. At least 99.999% of all WP users hated that thing with a vengeance and blind Orca hung on to the hope the Happiness Engineers at WordPress would finally see the errors in their ways and give up on fuing over their customers.
Boi was I wrong. They just renamed that shit and, just yesterday, made it live. No more ignorance and “I’m too cute to bother” for little Orcsi, reality bites. So I tried to compose a blogpost …
That’s one of the reasons for no content yesterday. Orca was overcome by the new WordPress editor. 😦 You know me, I’m not one for long studies of new tech, I just want everything to work as it always did. And in text- and layout based environment like a blog there is no better way than the traditional word processor, or is there?
WordPress seems to think differently and tries to make us think and work not on empty pages of virtual paper anymore but they crap their Blocks all over my screen …
So as you maybe can imagine I was looking for alternative bloghosts already since a while ago. Ya, I must admit I was aware of the coming onslaught and WP’s self-destruction. I’m not totally blind ya know. But I couldn’t find any worthwile alternative so I pushed the decision of migrating TSB! to a new host further and further and … now it’s too fukn late! 😮 Seems I must deal with it, getting used to this most hateful and atrocious new system.
Or do I?
I just stumbled upon this new bloggothingie. No idea if it’s foss and really as easy-peasy as they claim. Will hesitantly look into it. And I hope my co-bloggers will do as well. Ladies, let’s discuss.
It’s 06:09 a.m. here and I’m by now far too tired to do anything. Thank you WP for wearing me out and make me tired of your bullshit! Haven’t I always been your favourite golden egg blogger, paying premium fee and all the good stuff? Only for getting so badly betrayed by you. 😦
