It always amazes me how often websites need to be updated before they show their age. There are so many options now for creating and managing your website. Last time I went with a custom website. For my latest site refresh I wanted to try out one of the template based content management systems. I looked at many options (they all had their strengths and weaknesses) and chose to go with Squarespace. I liked the look of the templates and that it is possible to add custom code if needed. They were also able to import my blog, allowing me to continue using Disqus for the comments.
One of the appealing features is their iPad app. It stores all the images and video offline, so you don’t need to be connected to the Internet to view the site. This is great when I need to send the iPad out to present my portfolio.
As I seem to keep changing my method for creating my website every few of years, it will be interesting to see if Squarespace will be able to evolve with my needs so I don’t have to move again. They've had a few version updates over the years which accommodate the ever-changing features of web design, so I'm optimistic. Hope you like the new site!
