The “Block Editor” Has Mostly Destroyed WordPress

So a bunch of people have decided that “blocks are cool.” With WordPress screaming at you about them everyday, it’s hard not to knuckle under.

It used to be, you could pull up a blog, and at least see a headline and a couple of sentences for each post. Overview or introduction. Now I see a headline and a photo on several blogs. Arranged in a “beautiful grid pattern.” Or something. Next to completely useless.

And yes, I know you can make different choices re: format. But a cool grid of blocks and cool images. It must be cool, right? Wrong.
