How Gutenberg Will Change WordPress

Nicholas C. Rossis

From your comments, it’s obvious that you most of you hate Gutenberg. Some, however, were on the fence. And a few have actually used it and seemed to enjoy it.

There are some advantages to Gutenberg. We will have more control over the layout in native WordPress. We currently have a lot of control with builder themes and plugins, but with Gutenberg, we have a high level of control without needing a third-party product. We will need fewer plugins. Some of the features that we normally use plugins for are built into Gutenberg.

Whatever your feelings about it, we seem to be stuck with it. So, I thought I’d give you a quick description of how it works, with the help of Aspen Grove Studios. Just bookmark this post and come back to it if you wish to give Gutenberg a spin (or WordPress forces it upon us).

Obsessive-compulsive school mum, Skye, is a lonely elite spy, who is running from her past whilst trying to protect the future of her child. She tries hard to fit in with the other parents at her son’s new school, but the only person who accepts her unconventional way of life is new mother, Thea.

NOW-NJ PAC Votes to Endorse Candidates for the New Jersey Legislature in the General Election

For immediate release; contact: Deb Huber (908)-439-3173

The NOW-NJ Political Action Committee (PAC) is pleased to announce its endorsements in this year’s legislative election. The PAC’s decisions were based on responses to a detailed questionnaire, committing to issues benefitting women and their families. In some cases there was some follow-up where needed, as well as a review of the record of incumbents. Candidates who did not submit questionnaires were not considered this year. Endorsed candidates show full support for all NOW issues. The PAC may express support for a feminist candidate who is not quite perfect, but is clearly preferable to their opposition.

The NOW-NJ PAC announces full endorsement of the following candidates:

Pamela Lampitt for Assembly in the 6th district
George Youngkin for Senate in the 8th district
Joanne Schwartz for Assembly in the 8th district
Jill Dobrowansky for Assembly in the 9th district
Emma Mammano for Senate in the 10th district
Bob Smith for Senate in the 17th district
Elliot Isibor for Senate in the 26th district
Loretta Weinberg for Senate in the 37th district
Linda Schwager for Senate in the 39th district

In addition, the PAC expresses support for the reelection of Senator Shirley Turner in the 15th district

Now is the time to stand strongly behind these candidates to the New Jersey Legislature so that they can bring their efforts to bear on behalf of the people and to fiercely defend women, workers, and the underserved in the Garden State.

Deb Huber,
Chair, NOW-NJ Political Action Committee

Eight Steps to Establishing Your Author Brand

Re-blogged. I need some time to digest this. 😀

Story Empire

Ciao, SEers. I’m just getting back into the groove after a long overdue trip back to the homeland. No, not Italy, although that’s on my bucket list. We went back to Pennsylvania to celebrate my daughter’s high school graduation with the extended family. A great time was had by all. We extended our trip, which put me even further behind, but it is worth it to see loved ones, even if we ran ourselves ragged.


Who are you?My series on creating a media kit seemed to be helpful to writers, so I thought I’d discuss something that coordinates with the media kit—author branding. Having worked for several years as a corporate identity specialist in my “real” job, those principles are transferrable and I want to give you a quick checklist that might help you out.

So, without further ado, here are eight steps to author branding cohesion.
