The new WordPress with ‘blocks’ has rekindled my interest

This new WordPress interface that is based on “blocks” that can contain paragraphs, images, headings, etc., is really growing on me.

I don’t know if or when we’ll get this interface at my day job, but it’ll probably be a long, long time because I think WP 5.0 breaks most of hacky plugins that “real” publishers depend on.

It’s not just the shiny newness, or maybe it is, but this new way of looking at WordPress has stoked my interest in the platform, both the .com service and the self-hosted .org project. That’s a good thing, right?
