Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Looking for answers in I took in the new scope of today’s blog world. Maybe you have already discovered that the mission of WordPress is to help business-focused people develop their creative ideas and attract customers and followers. I applaud their mission. But what about people who love words and writing as an end in themselves? And us who look forward to reading their posts?

I have struggled so to figure out how to manage the new editor. I have spent time chatting with a Happiness Engineer about my problems with only a small result. For me writing and struggling with technology at the same time are an unworkable combination. I would rather live poetry in my experience of things in the present than write with the frustration of technology bearing down on me. And, yes, I am showing my age.

    My dear Ina. Here’s what you do:
    Go to your admin page. On the left, choose posts. Once you have, at the top you will see a box with “Add New” and beside it a downward pointing arrow. Click on the arrow and choose Classic editor. You won’t have to deal with the loathed Block Editor!

    I did learn of an answer to how to use the classic editor. It works! Go to the Administration page. On the left chose Posts. At the top you will see a box with “Add new”. Beside it is a downward pointing arrow,. Click on the arrow and choose Classic Editor. Then you will see the page you have always seen before the new editor came along.
