Do you like being prepared? Let’s all agree that what it means to “be prepared” varies greatly from one person to another. However, if you are a blogger, then consider this statement from Winter Park Bloggers and Social Media May speaker, David Laietta, “Gutenberg is coming to WordPress 5.0, which is quickly approaching, and everyone should be prepared.”
So, what is Gutenberg and why should you care? We found the short explanation below on https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/. Take a look:
Gutenberg, a new publishing experience for WordPress, is in the works: get ready to make your words, pictures, and layout look as good on screen as they do in your imagination, without any code.
Doesn’t that sound awesome?! We asked David to tell us how Gutenberg will help both beginning and experienced bloggers. He said, “Gutenberg is the future of WordPress, specifically starting with blogging. It’s a new dynamic for WordPress, and while an updated editing experience is exciting, it’s also a massive change from the establishment.”
Mr. Laietta has been a WordPress user and developer since 2008. He told us that he has been making basic websites since he was in high school and has been working with WordPress specifically for the last decade. Currently, he focuses on helping small businesses by providing ongoing support and user education. In addition, he assists in organizing WordPress Orlando and WordCamp Orlando.
“The ability to create my own online presence that I could share with others was always a driver for me, from my very first blog on a hosted platform to my current, long-neglected blogs. Being able to make and share things online, especially things that other people want, is amazing!”
