8 Necessary Gutenberg Blocks for Blogging

gutenberg blog for blogging

Hi ,

Block Editor a.k.a Gutenberg has been the default editor of WordPress since version 5.0, which was released in December 2018. Almost four years ago. From the beginning, Gutenberg was projected not only to become a blog post editor, but also a page editor -- much like Elementor and Divi Builder.

While the idea is great as you don't need to install a plugin to create both blog posts and pages, the implementation is not so good. Many WordPress users (especially bloggers) prefer to stick with Classic Editor (read: How to Disable Gutenberg in WordPress without Plugin).

After all, a blog post editor should be different to a page builder as they (blog posts and pages) have distinct characteristics. Blog post editor should offer a simpler interface, less distraction, and fewer setting options for elements. Koenig (the editor of Ghost) is a great example of blog post editor.

Nevertheless, if you enjoy using Gutenberg and want to make it looks simpler, you can disable the unnecessary blocks. We've picked the most essential Gutenberg blocks for creating blog posts. Read it below.
