It’s time I realised that I have a great deal more to contribute by concentrating on the documention of my output, and concentrating less on roling my own. As a programmer it’s easy to be seduced by the rolling of one’s own, but as I say, enough is enough is enough.
My concern with any CMS is that my ‘stuff’ will become imprisoned within their system, and it’ll be too difficult to do bulk, programmer-enabled things with it. Not so with squarespace- I can simply export the site as XML, have my wicked programmy way with it, and then re-import. The best of all worlds one might say!
