    I use Squarespace (gasp!). Been thinking about redesigning my site with basic, from scratch, custom html/css/js. The only thing holding me back is the fear of wasting hours tweaking it be as close to the version in my dreams and never actually finishing it. Haha.

      Ha! I've been there. I'm a designer, but I've coded my own sites by hand and even custom coded a Wordpress site, but I realized how time consuming it was and, in the end, how much a chore it was to update. I'm just not as efficient at coding as someone who makes a living doing it, so I went with Cargo a little while ago. I spent a day or two futzing with it, but in the end, it was easy to play with, easy to maintain, and worked on everything from a laptop to an iPhone.

      I admire people who code sites from scratch immensely, but there is also nothing wrong with simply showing your work on a solid platform. When I interview designers, I'm not really looking at if they hand-coded their portfolio site... I'm looking at the work that's being showcased... that's the important part.

      No shame in that game. I do too. It's legit!
