Squarespace

If you've been paying attention, you've noticed two things:

1. I haven't been posting regularly
1. I've moved the blog off of WordPress

The decision to move from WordPress originally stemmed from general slowness. This isn't necessarily WordPress' fault--it was most likely due, in part, to the shared hosting I was using. I switched to Koken, which is an awesome new CMS, but there was no way to import my old blog posts. Finally, I made the decision to move to Squarespace. Page load speeds seem faster, and the interface is pretty slick. Also, I was able to import my old WordPress posts, and create a URL redirect so old links will still work. Unfortunately, the shortcodes I used in the WordPress blog don't translate, so until I have a chance to go through the old posts, you will occasionally notice a naked shortcode or two. I appreciate your patience.
