Squarespace : A bit too simple for me. The overall layout was nice and UI was super friendly, but it didn’t allow me to customize my site as much as I would like to.

Virb : From what I experienced, the UI was fairly simple to use and themes were a bit more unique than Squarespace. The biggest problem that I encountered was that Virb somehow locked me out of my account…even though I included the right logged in credentials.

WordPress : This is the route that I will most likely (positively) be taking. The customization is unmatched amongst the other builders, rivaled only by building a site from scratch. Access to widgets and plugins allows for further, easy customization while the ability to edit code enables you to make the site into anything you want.

Here are a few of the other themes I was looking at:

  • Border – A simple theme with a beautiful border that has wonderful type options and allows you to focus directly on the work.
  • X – Super customizable, billed as the “last theme you will ever need.”
  • Neighborhood – The actual “last theme you will ever need.” This is the current theme that I have and the customization os unreal. There is a good chance I will continue to use this and just heavily edit the site that I have.
