Are you having trouble creating blog posts using WordPress Gutenberg? Here’s the easiest and fastest way to create a blog post in WordPress with Gutenberg.
Change is inevitable, but it still sucks.
I’m going to go over the simplest and fastest way to create a blog post in WordPress using Gutenberg.
The fastest way to post a blog in WordPress with Gutenberg
Here’s the backend of the website. If you didn’t know, I use WordPress and I design WordPress websites.
This is what Gutenberg looks like. Basically, you’re creating content using blocks. Each block is used to represent a header, paragraph, image, and so on.
Honest thought alert!
My honest thoughts are I hate Gutenberg and prefer the original basic word document. It was easier for me to add my own code and less time-consuming.
Now, you might be wondering why I don’t switch back to the original layout, and that’s because of 2 things: laziness and trying to keep an open mind.
I gotta keep up with technology, even my mom is more advanced than I am. She’s the one who taught me about apps and other things that I don’t use on my phone.
Ah, I remember the days of dial-up internet. While I was waiting for the call sound to go through in the background, I could multitask and make a sandwich. Kids have it easy these days. Let me know in the comments below if you remember the struggle.
Anyways, with the changes, I needed a faster and easier way to create blog posts. Then I went back to my tried and true method.
I always write all my blog posts in Google Doc. Then I just copy and paste it into WordPress.
Usually, I copy and paste into sections because I add images or videos in between, but I realized I could copy and paste everything and add it to Gutenberg and it automatically creates the blocks for you.
Even if I add a link to my video, it will automatically add that block for me, so Gutenberg actually works out better than the original layout, until I have to code something and that takes 50 million years.
Now, I can just go back and add the images I need to add, and it took less time than creating the blocks individually.
