Over the last couple of years, I have been using Squarespace for my website hosting and website development. Before I started I did my research and I was looking for a company that would provide me with all the tools I would need to create the website I have always wanted. Yes, there is some cheap and even free website host that will work for most people, but I wanted more. I knew that developing my website would be a continuous process. I needed a website host that would provide me the tools to be creative and build my website. That is why I chose Squarespace.
Now I have to admit that I haven't taken advantage of all the great features and tools of using Squarespace in the past. But, I was using what I thought I needed. Not knowing that Squarespace had some many features I failed to use and explore. Just this morning I took a look at my website and decided to change the template I was using. Changing a Squarespace template so quick and easy. I could easily do that with Squarespace. Of course, I chose one of the photography templates but there are many more to choose from. Each template is customizable and additional pages can be easily added to a site.
After looking at my latest template I realized I needed to add a few tweaks to my pages. So I added new social media links to my web pages. Now people can easily access my Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube Channel from every page on my website. Of course, the main reason I use Squarespace is for photography images and projects. I am able to upload up to 20 GB photos and files to My Store gallery. The images are not compressed like most other website hosts. I love that. People can actually see a high resolution of my images. That is extremely important to me.
Having my own website is so much better than any social media platform. I am not restricted by what content I upload. I am able to keep my content current and add just about anything I want. Many other social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube has so many restrictions and I can't really can't trust if my content is actually reaching my intended audience. With Squarespace it's easy.
I have to admit, I haven't used all the tools, apps, and resources provided by Squarespace over the last couple of years and that is on me. I will start taking advantage of many of the amazing resources, tools, and support Squarespace offers me. The price of such a great product is well worth every penny. If you have been looking to create your own website and want a professional-looking website that works, I highly suggest looking into Squarespace.
Until next time!
