Over the last year or so I have become increasingly frustrated with my previous website. It was hard to change the site for me, as I am not a web developer. However, I wanted the control over the site myself. I didn't want to have to rely on someone else to put the site together and maintain it.
About a month ago I heard an ad for Squarespace on This American Life, and I decided to look into it. No only does their service give me the control over the site I wanted, and even more options that I didn't think I would be able to do myself, but the style of the site's templates are very appealing. I find myself wishing for more graphics to fill the site with visual delights. Perhaps that will come, in time.
For now, I am just happy to have a new home. One that I am in control of. One that I love the style of. And one that I can grow with.
