I've become increasingly disappointed with Typepad, my blogging platform. The templates feel old and trying to add things like links and other tweaks is complicated and bewildering. So, i decided to go look for an alternative.
I found Squarespace.com. It looks beautiful. It promises simplicity. I paid $20 for a months rent … and two hours later I cancelled my account and kissed goodbye to my $20. Why? It's not simple - it's bewildering - and it doesn't work with MarsEdit, my offline blogging software. It's easier to stick with typepad … but, oh boy, I'm disappointed.
