I don’t do reviews…

But (you know one was coming). I just sat down to read ” Swinging Sanity” a book of poetry by my friend N. F. Mirza, who I know as ‘stoneronarollercoaster’ at WordPress.

I’ve known her for a while and found out she was a writer and now a published poet. Her book is a small volume. But it’s full to bursting with poetry full of emotion. As she moves through life, using it to discover her mental health and wellbeing.

The poems are forceful, I’m no poetry critic, but I found them easy to read. Some of them touched raw nerves, and you can see her heart torn open in many of them. I particularly liked Ocean and I become one.

New editor review. Plus link from WordPress for help with it.

I’ve just reverted back to the old classic editor (thanks Martha Kennedy for explaining).

I tried to get the new one. I really did. But there are too many bells and whistles I don’t understand.

If I had to rate it I would give it 7/10.

Its not bad, but for someone like me who can’t code and who has only rarely used html… What is that anyway? I was just flummoxed.

Things like tags, I like using tags so people can find my stuff. It took me a while to find them on the old version. I found them again on the new editor. But although I eventually found the publish key I don’t know whether they showed up.

My other problem reverting to classic, is that I have already written this once. Pressed preview and then an error message came up, page cannot be found! It feels very much like a poem I wrote, “unexpected item in the bagging area”. So I put in a plea to WordPress to ask for help. No response yet. I’m not saying this is bad, just that I’m not clever enough to understand. ….

I’ve had a response from WordPress… You can use this link for more information on how to use editor:
