Gutenberg Times Update #54

Good Bye Storify

Today we will continue the curation of Gutenberg posts from around the web and test Gutenberg Embed blocks in real life. I have been using Gutenberg for content production on two live sites and every time i have to go back to the classic editor I briefly grinch. Gutenberg is a wonderful way to publish on the web.

From June 2017 to Jan 23, 2018, I posted 53 updates to Storify, hundreds of tweets, blog posts, videos and photos all around the development of Gutenberg. We will bring all of them over to this site before Storify shuts its doors this Spring.

And now some Gutenberg News
