Or the ability to turn a headline into another block type. Even a photo. A la Instagram.
The headline is a barrier.
Instagram freed up millions to publish and share something they “created” easily: photos.
You didn’t even have to do a caption.
And you did it from the tool you have with you all the time: your phone.
Tumblr as I recall also alleviated this barrier.
Backstory: As I’ve been publishing here for the last couple of months, I forced myself to get over obstacles to publishing like:
- Thinking it had to be 1500 words
- Optimized for search
- For others
I did it for me and I just clicked published.
But the headline got in the way. A lot.
Sometimes I wanted to post Instagram style of my sketches, or photos. Sometimes just a quote. Or a question and use the comments to get feedback.
Without a headline … and yes on mobile.
Headlines get in the way of all of that. And I believe a synthetic obstacle which I asked in Post Status if it’s required on the backend of WordPress.
I don’t know all the technical constraints. (I’m not a dev.)
But if you could simply switch the headline to another block I’d buy that plugin today!
Doing it on mobile would be a bonus.
