Bloggers: WordPress vs Squarespace

Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing good. I had a post I was going to publish but then I got the idea and inspiration for this one. So I decided to write and publish this first.

 

I want to hear what you guys have to say. So if you have opinions, please share them in the comment section. I am officially opening this debate in the comment section.

 

This one might be short unlike my other longer posts because I am writing this on this fly.

 

I’m going to talk about two of the most famous Content Management Systems for creating blogs today; WordPress and Squarespace.

 

I am 100% WordPress. I will not mention any specific names but I have the client who had her website built on Squarespace I was cool about this and did my job; working on SEO and Social Media Marketing.

 

So I’m cool about working on her Squarespace until… she wanted a blog. In my mind, I was already like “Squarespace uhn?” Let me move on to why WordPress roasts Squarespace any day for blogs.

 

  1. WordPress gives me enough rope to hang myself, which I love. It’s so easy downloading plugins and configuring plugins on WordPress. Unlike WordPress, Squarespace does not come with so many tools. So if you’re looking to start a blog, you want something that gives you enough leeway.
  2. WordPress is free. If you do not know, it’s free to install and start using. You have to pay for Squarespace. I’m leaving that there.
  3. You can create as many pages as you want on WordPress, but with Squarespace, you have to move from the $8 monthly plan to the $20 monthly plan to be able to create unlimited pages.
  4. You’re also limited on a number of products you can sell. If you want to sell more on Squarespace, you have to pay more.
  5. Say with me, “Templates and Themes”. On WordPress, there are thousands of free themes you can use. With Squarespace, that is limited and you can only use certain customizers.

 

So I have more but I would like to get feedback on this. If you have any reasons why Squarespace is better for blogs, leave a comment I will reply you asap.

 

Thanks for reading.
