WordAds, new Gutenberg blog, learning curve

So, Premium has some things I can recognize that I have been seeing for ages, and some things that I have no idea how they work.  So showing the pictures of those to the admins at WordPress.  One thing I have always loved about WordPress is that people share information very readily on how to do things.  So I know that I can research “what” these things actually are, right here in the search space.  I remember back to 2007 and the way it looked behind the scenes – there were two people I really liked here?  One was Lorelle and the other was Raincoast, I think the name was raincoast, or Raincoaster?

I felt that second person might have been from the Pacific Northwest based on the totem he used?

Now it is different, but if I searched I bet I could find them in Google.

So for me, Gutenberg IS ME, and I stand behind every single one of the words I have ever written either as my nom de plume or right now.

So the “tech” types have built all these apps and plugins and the learning curve for one like me is huge because “tech” was never my field to begin with.  What made WordPress easy was the PEOPLE that were here.  So it was a friendly place, right from day one in 2007, for me.   So today’s pictures.

This is what I mean by Global Reach.  On the peachy bar above the orange bar?  What I think that might mean?  Is that WordPress admins are in the peach space.  I remember once I used the word Ma.tt and saw he came by.  I like the peachy bar.  Because in this era “WORDS” matter.   Also, not scrubbing the web.  I think this is what Open Source means.  So somebody over in Egypt just read something I wrote.  Because of the translators?  Or maybe they spoke English and could read it.

I searched for Jetpak.  Look at the bottom of the page.

So because I am not tech, seeing “this feature is not available” is a warning?

Right now we are in a time when information is being controlled?  It seems to me that this is what Open Source is fighting.  Hence Firefox and WordPress.  I am trying to find out what Jetpak is as relates to WordPress only, but yeah, now they are making the actual jetpacks.  Many of the words “coined” for the internet are words you have to know, or look up using things like Urban Dictionary and so forth.   These are “generational” style tech words.

Began to watch first video and got a screenshot for WP admins.

this next one took a really long time to start, but I saw the ad at the top to the right on essential plugins!

Once I saw the plugins that were only for Business, this is how I have made my decision.

The top two pages I am not sure what they are for?

For today I am going to add the feedback page, if I can figure out how.

So, this is kind of how I have learned WP on this new Gutenberg deal.   I have no idea what all the plug ins are?

I really don’t!

I’m not kidding and I wouldn’t know which ones to get?

It seems like I would want those, though.

I can see that I have Jetpack BY WordPress as “already here.”

Here is the good thing.  I clicked on one or two of those plug ins and it explains what they are, in written form here in WordPress itself.

So that is the FRIENDLY part that WordPress has always been for me.  Since 2007.

Learning curve, hoping I am helping WP admins understand what a non-tech type like myself goes through, not kidding and hope I made you laugh!
