This long, lovely German word means an attempted improvement that only makes things worse.

Well, that is exactly the perfect word for how I feel about this newfangled WordPress update. I am not a computer whizz-far from it.

I am quite irritated by it, in fact. So much so that I have not posted in months.

Is it just me? I want to go back to the old way. I seriously am confused by it. I don’t need the block editor. Truly I don’t. I simply want to write some of my ideas and I want to share with you all my recent self-publishing on Amazon.

I am not even sure if this will post right.

Please let me know.

WordPress, please give up the option to use the traditional format.

I am seriously considering not continuing on Word press.

Thank you.

Jenny W. Andrews

      1. You’re very welcome ☺️ I’m sorry that it’s been tough. You aren’t alone, you’re appreciated I’m sure and you’ll be doing brilliantly, so keep on doing what you do. If others get it wrong (including WordPress) then that’s their problem, not yours.
