Using the Gutenberg Editor

I will leave you tonight with a post on the new Gutenberg editor as tested and used by Colleen Chesebro… who is urging us to embrace change… but as she admits it is still pitchy and a bit frustrating… I will let them iron a few things out before I dive in..

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  1. Thanks for the share, Sally. The scheduler is really hard to maneuver right now. For example, my poetry challenge for Tuesday posted on Monday.
