WordPress 5 Block Editor ("Gutenberg") Tutorials

WordPress 5 included a major upgrade to its editor. The new editor uses blocks to let you "build" a page out of various pieces (paragraphs, images, videos, etc.). A few clients have asked for help with this new editor, so I'd like to share a few free tutorials to help. Some are video, others are text (with images).

You can find these and other general WordPress tutorials, in my post WordPress Admin Area Tutorials & Learning Resources.
