I've been thinking of starting a personal blog for quite a few years, but never got round to it for several reasons, such as WordPress stifling my creativity and not enough time on my hands. Not that I have anything against WordPress.
Why Squarespace? I first heard of them around the time when iPad cases were thrown out of their NYC office windows on an episode of Diggnation. I checked them out, but other than the trial period, they don't have any free plan and I didn't fancy making such an investment at the time. Now, I do. I understand that they have to make money, and the service they provide is unparalleled, so I'm perfectly willing.
