Lately I've been thinking a lot about web sites. I've been thinking about how I want to brush up my HTML and CSS skills. I've been thinking about how even though I liked the template of my Blogger blog a lot, I'd been using the same design for six years, and maybe it was time for a change.
There's also this web site I stumbled upon when I was trying to find HTML5 resources: One Page Love. It's an excellent resource, and great because you get to see a lot of very different, but definitely successful, web sites. And they mentioned Squarespace a lot — a web template site I'd checked out before. Four days ago, I signed up for another free trial, and talked myself into making the move tonight.
There will be the usual awkwardness of physically moving a blog: all of the internal links lead back to the old Blogger site, and short of editing every entry that has links in it (and there are lots), there isn't really anything I can do about it. Oh well, the old blog isn't actually going anywhere, so all the content will be there. I've disabled comments on the old blog to encourage people to use this new one.
The general plan is to stick with this template until I have a need for an actual home page, and then switch things up a bit. I'm sure there will be a lot of kinks to be worked out, but if you could give me any feedback, I'd be very grateful.
