When I first tried Squarespace, it was love at first sight.
During my 7 years of running an online business, I experimented with a few different drag and drop type website builders. They were usually easy to learn, but it didn’t take long before I felt limited by what I could do with them. At one point, I wanted more options, so I switched to WordPress.
There was a huge learning curve involved in mastering WordPress, but I was determined. I studied it relentlessly so I could use it comfortably and be able to update my website as often as needed.
Until finally, I just couldn't take it anymore. I started to realize that being on WordPress was way too frustrating. First of all, it was very difficult to learn in the first place. And even after I learned a ton, there was still the issue of speed and difficulty of maintenance. My website was ridiculously slow no matter what I did to try to speed it up. Anytime I needed to make a simple update, it would take me forever to get it done because either it was difficult or took way too long to finalize. Did I mention your website can easily get hacked on WordPress if you don't constantly update those millions of plugins? Yup, scary + annoying!
I came to a point where I said, there has got to be a better way! And that's when a lovely friend of mine said, "I love Squarespace, why don't you try it?" I was desperate, so I said, "I will!"
And just like that, my first love for a website building platform began. I fell in love head over heels with Squarespace. I mean, who wouldn't love an easy, uncomplicated, co-operative, flexible, secure and beautiful tool like this? Plus, I was wonderfully surprised to find out that it was a lot more customizable that I had expected! (And no, they don't pay me to say that!)
I enjoyed the process of using Squarespace so much that I decided to make it my designated platform for creating websites for all my clients.
