I’ve been blogging since 2008 across several different platforms and here in 2017 I’m back where I started – WordPress.
For about 5 years I’ve been a satisfied Squarespace user but over the last few months they have not catered for my needs so decided to leave.
Here’s why I left Squarespace
- Lack of attention on iOS apps; slow to update to the latest technologies of the latest iOS version and hardware (such as new screen resolutions)
- They cater to photography; a very heavy focus on promoting and providing templates to photographers, it’s not a blogging friendly platform
- Integration; more integration options on WordPress thanks to the development community
- Polished iOS blogging experience on WordPress ; I prefer using the app than the site
So as a blogger focusing on text rather than images and is also iOS first I feel that Squarespace is leaving me behind. WordPress fulfils all of my iOS and template needs as a text based blogger.
