The current WordPress editor is a little behind the time. It hasn’t really changed since 2009!
Thankfully, the WordPress community is working on a complete reimagining of content publishing. The Gutenberg project leap-frogs competitors like Squarespace and Medium, giving WordPress users the tools to create vibrant, modern, and engaging content experiences.
I believe Gutenberg has the power to herald in a kind of “Blogging 2.0”, as authors are inspired to build new forms of medium / long-form content, and their audience is excited about interacting with something more than a wall of text.
This is great news for the open and distributed web, which will soon have the opportunity to out-class walled-garden platforms in reader engagement.
