As a purveyor of new technology applications, I recently decided to embrace the new Gutenberg user experience on WordPress. 

After a hair-pulling experience trying to manage my existing content, I quickly switched back to the previous visual editor. 

Yet, WordPress remained persistent in promoting the new interface, leading me to take a deep breath and try again. This time, however, I am using Gutenberg only for new content creation. So far the experience has been positive.

While I’m still not convinced of the value of the new “blocks” experience, I will continue to keep an open mind.

If you’re in Germany, take a detour to visit Gutenberg’s home town of Mainz and the museum dedicated to him and his contributions to the information age. 

My wife, Tricia, and I were there a few years ago and left feeling awestruck by how influential the movable type printing press actually was. We would definitely recommend a visit.
