Goodbye WordPress.com

Well, I’ve switched blog engines once again. Several months ago I switched from a self-hosted WordPress to the WordPress.com service, because my blog kept getting hacked due to security holes in the open source version of WordPress.

But WordPress.com was far from perfect, they are very restrictive about what you can put on your blog (so no tools like Woopra or Google Analytics), only a small selection of approved plugins.

So I’ve decided to switch again, this time to SquareSpace. They let you use your own embedded code, which means I can now use the analytics system of my choice, and other neat tools like Google’s Prettify script.

Watch this space to see how I get on!
