Driving day: Day trip to the Dr in Frisco CO

My knee is feeling like a pretty serious injury so I am going to see my ortho who fixed me up three years ago. Hoping that surgery isn’t necessary but it feels like my injuries from the past. Which means surgery.

Either way it was a beautiful/terrifying drive through the mountains. The top photo was taken at Vail Pass, Colorado.

The snow started appearing in Glenwood Springs

Driving: Mancos to Grand Junction

Travel day! We moved from Mancos to Grand Junction today so that I (Roger) can drive up to Vail this week to get my knee checked out. Kate drove and did a great job as arrived without incident.

Klondike Bluffs north of Moab

It’s a beautiful drive that passes through Moab Utah. Moab is definitely one of the most unique landscapes on the planet. As a kid we used to drive there in springtime to start the mountain biking season. It has since grown into a major travel destination and is crawling with people, atvs, and mountain bikers.

On the road again

We were planning on driving the rig up to Eagle Co tomorrow to be closer to the doctors office but the weather is getting drastically colder. Since our rig is not equipped for freezing temps we are gonna stay in grand junction and drive up for the day. Fun times!

WordPress Resource: Your Website Engineer with Dustin Hartzler

In today’s episode we talk about getting your site prepared for the new Gutenberg Editor which comes with WordPress 5.0 in just a few weeks.

Gutenberg is coming. Have you tried writing with it? I think that from a purely writing perspective the G is a nicer experience than the classic editor. It is a cleaner interface that is focused on the text. There are no boxes separating your text from the rest of the screen. When you hit enter it creates a new paragraph block. If you want to shift blocks around it is as easy as dragging them around. You can also convert the block to another block type.

The biggest catch so far is adding in-line images. At this point the workflow in the classic editor definitely makes it easier to add an image and align it to left or right and have text flow around it. In the G this process takes a few more actions that aren’t super intuitive to accomplish.

All that said I think the important part for bloggers is that we get back to focusing on the content. That’s what our users are here for.

What do you think? Is the G great or is it the first of the four horsemen of the WordPress apocalypse?
