 The floating toolbar in the block-style editor is always covering up what
 I most recently wrote, which is EXTREMELY bothersome to a writer who is
 trying to achieve flow of writing (one needs to re-read what they just
 wrote quite often, but the stupid toolbar is ALWAYS covering it up - words
 cannot describe how annoying I find this to be).  There is a ton of wasted
 white space in the left and right margins on my landscape-view desktop
 monitor.  Why not make use of this white space and make this floating
 toolbar a vertical bar in the left margin (instead of the horizontal bar
 it currently is)?

 I'm sure the floating horizontal toolbar is a life-saver for those using
 smartphones where I assume there is no white space in the left/right
 margins, but I would wager that most people writing blog articles are not
 using smartphones to write;  they are using desktops and laptops that all
 have this wasted white space.
