The new Gutenberg WordPress interface is leaving some bloggers wanting to use their classic editor plugin for as long as possible.

And I get that. Because it’s definitely a little overwhelming at first.

Gutenberg is definitely a learning curve, but it actually holds SO much potential for your site once you get it setup and become accustomed to it.
