Six in Six in Six Tries! With Pie

How did I miss this book blogging event? Oh well, better now than never? Thank you to Joann for bringing to my attention. I needed a post idea. The six tries refers to my trials and tribulations with getting the Block Editor to work the way I want it to. Perhaps, my theme and the editor are incompatible. I did a few iterations…
