Drastic change always stinks at first – I can think back to countless times over the years that I yelled about OS upgrades, too (I think I might still be complaining about Windows 10). Gutenberg, however, is apparently here to stay, offering me something new to complain about, and mostly because I’m ignoring it. I keep this website simple and basic on purpose, so before the task of coaching clients through a major Wordpress overhaul, I installed it here first.
In college, especially during the first two years, we are required to take a variety of classes to expand our minds and I think people often read that particular phrase without thinking about what it really means.
Honestly, it started as a whim during a long, quiet evening at work. I filled out an application to the local community college, then filled out a FAFSA application, and within about a week, had pointed myself to an English degree.

Editors, they’re a thing for a reason, and they still have massive purpose in this world. I read not only because I enjoy the escape of it, but also because I learn from a finely-written and finely-edited work.
