To Squarespace, or not to Squarespace

I logged in to check for the date when my Squarespace subscription period ends. I’ve got little over a month to decide what I want to do, so why not write a little.

I’ve hardly used the Squarespace platform this past year. Should I switch platform again, this time to something cheaper (or free)? Checking the pricing for Ghost surprised me, it costs almost twice as much as my Squarespace subscription! So I can either stick with what I have here or go back to something self-hosted. Hosted WordPress doesn’t interest me at all, as it looks way too limited.

Looking at self-hosted alternatives, I guess WordPress would be the simplest. I’ve got years of experience with it after all. An alternative could be to try to host Ghost myself. I’m tempted to do that either way. Learning is fun, and I wouldn’t mind taking a quick peek under the hood of Ghost. See what makes it tick.

I should do a little research on what other blogging platforms exist these days. But let’s face it, I’m lazy. I probably won’t. At least I’m honest about it.
