I know all of you have spent the beginning of your summer obsessing over Squarespace’s shortfalls and building new websites in WordPress, because…summer, right? Well, sadly, I’m nerdy like that so that’s exactly what I have spent a decent chunk of my summer doing so far. I’ve blogged before about Squarespace and some of my frustrations with it as a blogging platform: no archive functionality (I managed to bootleg it but you shouldn’t have to; this should be a built-in function in a blog platform, IMO); share functionality is, while admittedly elegant, not intuitive; it can’t be trusted with Chrome so you have to draft somewhere else then paste and reformat…a drag, to say the least; Squarespace doesn’t support SSL, which just doesn’t make sense in this day and age; the fact that I’ve been paying $5 a month for Feedblitz when I MailPoet is better and free…ultimately, I just decided what the hell. That plus I had somehow messed up the redirect of Mizzinformation.com so that it went nowhere, and don’t even get me started on the nightmare that it is to transfer a domain away from Google. It took forever to finally figure it out, but here we are, on a new, not super attractive (yet) new Mizz Information.
Then, ironically, I read this post today just as I was contemplating not making the switch even though I’d already imported all my content here, and decided that was a sign, so here we are.
For now, I’ll just be leaving Maggiemcgary.com alone but switching the blog to this site. If you subscribe via email, you should still be getting email updates of new posts; if you subscribe via a reader, please update to the new feed. Not an existing subscriber? It’s never too late!
Anyway, hope you’re having a great summer so far and I’m looking forward to hopefully getting some of my blogging mojo back and making Mizz Information better than ever in the coming months.
