As both a web designer and blogger, I have had experience with a few platforms but Squarespace is my go to for both myself and clients. There are always pros and cons to each platform but the pros with Squarespace really match my mission and what I offer my clients.

EASE OF USE

As some of you may know I had my blog hosted on Blogger for the first 2 years and decided to make the switch to Squarespace in January and haven't looked back. Being on Squarespace has been an extremely pleasant experience and I would highly recommend this platform to anyone with an online presence. It is straight forward and is easy to learn the ins and outs.

Everything you need to incorporate into your site is already on this platform and if it is not you can always input coding. You are able to add social media sites, mailchimp integration, photos, forms, audio, video and products.
