I've had a website for around 6 years now. I started off with a wordpress site and over the years went through a few design changes, adding features and trying to keep it up to date.
The problem was that it never stayed up to date. Each time I logged in (which was not that often) there was a queue of plugins waiting to be updated or changes to default layouts that needed reverting to my design that after a while the site became a pain to look after. It even got hacked once on the back of an out of date plugin that had a security flaw.
I decided I wanted something simpler, cleaner and with the ability to one day have the option to sell prints. Whilst I could have done this via wordpress, I wanted something easier to run. I looked at a few options and eventually settled on Squarespace (on the back of a recomendation from a friend and adverts on many podcasts I listen to!). This seems to give me everything I need and I'm hoping that this will allow me to keep the site more up to date than before.
I may play around with the site theme a bit but I'm pleased with how things have gone so far.
So here we are, new site!
