It’s been a few years since I did any serious blogging or podcasting. Part of my reluctance to continue had to do with the difficulties of maintaining the web site upon which the blog was hosted. WordPress does make the job easy enough but it could be simpler.
While looking for a fully hosted system I came across Squarespace. I love the WYSIWIG site creation interface. It makes on the fly configurations and updates so simple and the best part is there is no software to maintain to keep it up to date. As a technical professional, the last thing I want to do when I get home is upgrade my web site.
I’m going to give it a good run. Over the next few weeks I’ll be doing some design work to customize the look and feel of the site. I’ll also be adding back in some of the other services I’ve been using like My Blog Log.
I will also look into converting as many of my old posts as possible. I’ve decided to strip out the digests as I don’t think they were really that relevant. Let’s see how this goes.
