Seems about once per year since I started blogging over 10 years ago, I seek out the latest and greatest and move all my material and then create a blog entry about how damn great that new platform is.
Like everyone, I started with blogspot and used it regularly as it was the best platform around for at least a few years there in the beginning. Then, for me, came wordpress, then Joomla, then back to blogger, then to tumblr, then wordpress, then medium, then back to blogger, and now Squarespace.
Yes, I've completely killed my SEO and yes, some formatting has been lost between my very old posts and ten-years newer technology powering blog platforms today. That's okay though because nothing really motivates me to write more than a new platform on which to do it.
So let's talk about Squarespace. Holy hell is it cool. I've been needing to bring together my websites in order to associate them with me and this is the ultimate platform for such a thing. The integration of all my social accounts was seamless and even pointing my domain from godaddy was a cinch. In addition, I can quickly grab a stock photo for an editorial or the site itself, I can insert just about any component anywhere within my text, or in this case, blog post, and everything just happens in the background. Things like image resizing and overlaid text colors that automatically contrast. I'm impressed and the items mentioned here are only the beginning.
If you haven't already, check out Squarespace. As a second, much easier solution for blogging, Medium.com is probably the easiest option out there and could very well overtake some of the bigger social platforms with time. Never know!
