Squarespace Blog Post Framework - Video Series

 

UPDATE as of June 2017: You can now duplicate Squarespace blog posts!

Very exciting! What am I going to do with all that saved time!

You're welcome to keep watching through this blog post framework series because if blogging is one way you market your business, then this series will show you how to set up a blog post template.

The only difference is, once you've set up your blog post framework draft post (just one time!), you'll be able to duplicate (or clone) it from now on.

In this series, you'll learn:

  • Why you should add regular elements to your blog post drafts
     
  • The step-by-step process I use to set up my draft posts to include these regular elements
     
  • A super cool hack using the spacer block

I hope that soon this video series will be obsolete when/if Squarespace adds a duplicate blog posts feature (like the duplicate pages feature.) When that happens, all you'll need to do is set up your draft post framework once and then reuse it. Till then... (**YES THIS SERIES IS TECHNICALLY OBSOLETE - although the spacer block hack and the overall concept is still valid.

Thanks for signing up to watch this video series.
