WordPress vs. Squarespace

August 12, 2015

Are you a blogger? Well I am, obviously. And since I care about what my blog looks like, I care about which website I use. I like WordPress, but some options are limited.

Some templates cost money. I want my site to look the way want. And I’m not so good with codes. I just download and that’s it. And also I want to change my template anytime with my blog automatically. Unlimited plans cost money. I already used 2% of my storage space (I’m not saying it’s a lot) but I had this blog for about two months. What happens when I have no more storage? I’ll have to pay for the Premium Plan. And I don’t like to pay for things that aren’t so necessary.

I can’t put the widgets I want. I’m on Pinterest and I want to put “Follow” buttons and board widgets on my site, but I can’t because WordPress doesn’t use JavaScript for security reasons.

With Wix, you can have a free plan, but it’s very restricted. With Squarespace, all the plans you have to pay. The lowest plan is $8 a month and still, I don’t want to pay the money. On the other hand, on Wix you drag widgets instead of copying and pasting them. Which, in my opinion, is less work on my back. On Squarespace, I don’t know. And plus on Wix, there’s always ads to join to Maybe they carry viruses. I mean, who knows. So Wix should be definitely a no. But I keep second-guessing myself. But I just wish that WordPress would be more like Wix. The only thing I would want is to drag a Pinterest follow button or board widget to my site with ease. But, you can’t have everything.

For now, I’ll just fly with WordPress. They are write for me.
