I was one of those skeptics when Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress announced Gutenberg at WordCamp US a few years ago. It was something new and that scared me, as well as countless others.
To be honest it didn’t help that they released it with WordPress 5.0 days before WordCamp US.
As time goes by, Gutenberg (aka the block editor), has matured and continues to do so. The functionality is growing and I’ve learned to prefer it to the classic editor. The idea of blocks scared me at first, but I quickly got the hang of how to use them.
To be honest, for all of us who have been using WordPress for years, we knew how to work WordPress. But for those people new to the content management system, Gutenberg made more sense.
