    From what we can tell from your sentence, we recommend using a colon instead of a semicolon after "Can I say this." (You may hold on to your firstborn. Thanks anyway.)

      I think your worries of a web builder closing up shop is a legit one, and it's always wise to think ahead! But I really think Squarespace and WordPress are going to be around for many years to come. There isn't any guarantee that any businesses / platforms will sustain "forever", but I think these two are in pretty good shape!

    Jeremy, this is probably the best review that I've read on Squarespace. You are currently ranked #1 for Squarespace Review. Congratulations! Many people are going to find your review very helpful. Anyhow, small businesses with out the technical expertise will find services like squarespace.com, wix.com, and webestore.com very useful as a starting point.
