I distinctly remember trying to start a website on WordPress back in 2010. I had all of these ideas, I drew out the layout I wanted on a piece of paper I was so excited it was freaking unreal. 

Well, until I tried to build it. I was super overwhelmed by the whole process and underwhelmed by the results. Kudo's to everyone who started their websites back then. You are truly patient talented souls. I pretty much completely gave up and my site looked horrible, but it was for a sports team so it served its purpose. 

Cue 2016, I started my Home Design Website, straight up because of Squarespace. it made it so easy for me to start that I was able to produce a great looking site within days instead of weeks-months. The learning curve was so easy in comparison to what I had to deal with in 2010, I wish I could make that site now. It would rock.

BUT! Squarespace definitely has limitations, Wordpress has all of those awesome plugins that make it so much easier to integrate really awesome things. like YOAST

I've been talking for a while about starting a new site, and DIVI is what finally sealed the deal. I still didn't want the big learning curve that Wordpress has, but DIVI has cleared that up completely!
