    It took me a wee while to adjust, but I actually like the blocks. Lots more options and flexibility.

      Thanks for the encouragement, Graham. I will have to adjust but not happy about having my choice taken away.

  3. Thanks, I switched to blocks a while ago. I can’t necessarily say I find it better than “classic”, but I guess it’s all about getting used to it. Now I do find it kind of funny to look at my old “classic” posts! 🙂

    The thing I hate most about posts done in block editing is that they don’t read well on a tablet or phone. Content always gets cut off or is awkwardly placed.
    This is a major problem, and the fact that they instituted this change without first fixing it just shows that their tech people don’t know what they are doing. I have not been switched over yet but I anticipate similar problems, even with “classic” block. People I know who do programming always say you have to make sure what you do reads well across all media. (K)

      Excellent point, K. It does need to read well across all media. Tablets and phones are the preferred device of many, and if they can’t read posts well on them, they might just stop reading altogether and choose another platform to use for blogging and reading, etc.
