This site has been stirring around in my head for a while. I’ve launched a few blogs in the past and got bored really quickly. I can’t talk about just one thing; I’ve always got 10 things running around in my head.
Slick and gorgeous! I mean, seriously. I had a site that looked so much better than this does (so far) in about 2o minutes. Triva: The Hawaiian shirt header was meant for the Squarespace site. The downside is that it’s pricey: about $200 a year. Granted, you get more than what you pay for.
Some stats say that WordPress runs 1/6th of the sites on the web. It’s a mature, popular, well documented and supported application. It’s also free, but you gotta have a server to put it on. It also doesn’t have the beautiful templates that Squarespace has.
1: It’s November. Christmas is coming. Do I really feel like racking up a $200 bill for a year of who knows what on the internet?
2: I’m so intrigued with learning something new. I catch onto tech pretty well. As cool as Squarespace is, WordPress skills are marketable.
3: I like the story: Geek buys 2 domains and build a really cool website, while documenting how he built that site.
4: Lifehacker. They ran this deal.
5: This is an experiment. With the Lifehacker deal, one extra domain and WordPress, I’d be in the hole about $30.
WordPress was the only choice.
