square deal

As is often my custom, when I make changes to my website I make sweeping changes in rapid succession with frequently mixed results.

Well today I made a bit more of a serious chance. I've migrated my entire website over to Squarespace. I've transferred both of my domains (danielcwarshaw.com and ploafmaster.com - both of which point here), and as soon as my files finish downloading from Dreamhost, I'm pulling the plug after more than 6 years of hosting there.

Squarespace has allowed me, in one day, to get my site up and running the way I want with minimal fuss. If I ever get around to customizing the look the way I want, it should be fairly straight-forward, but I'm happy with things the way they are right now. And I even implemented a little CSS trick to get my images to auto-resize. Considering I've never taken the time to properly learn CSS (I know, I know...), I'm pleased as punch that it worked out.

So I prepaid for the year with Squarespace. That means I'm in it for the long-haul, and I look forward to having a website that I feel comfortable using again. Oh, and the iPhone app lets me post in Markdown, too, so I'm pretty happy about that as well.
