‘Have photos of cats you want to post?’

In Upload Once, Blog Anywhere: Photos from Google — The WordPress.com Blog:

Wouldn’t it be great if you could browse, search, and insert photos from your Google account right to your blog posts and pages? Now you can.

This is a new addition to the Wordress editor and it’s certainly going to be useful. Right now it works in the WordPress.com/Calypso editor. I guess/hope that it will be eventually also available in Gutenberg. But who knows.

It’s great that there is no shortage to get content on the blog, albeit one might argue there’s too many defaults. There is the WordPress editor (both WYSIWYG and the text-only, then there’s Calypso, the WordPress/Jetpack one (in which I write right now and I actually like) and then there’s the soon-to-be default Gutenberg. And I’m not even talking about all the other 3rd party solutions.

I would say the more, the merrier. So there is most likely something for every need out there. I played around with Gutenberg a bit and liked, found it a bit too wibbly-wobbly at the moment still and just now realize that Calypso is actually rather nice. I might stick with this for a while again.

And of course, to try out, a picture of a cat:
